Created in 1932 by Pierre Poilâne, this celebrated Parisian bakery has lasted decades by preserving what is best.
Three Poilâne generations - Pierre, Lionel, and Apollonia - have followed in each other’s footsteps, each driven by the same purpose: to offer breads made from diverse grains and slow fermentation, prioritizing quality over quantity.
SHARING OUR PASSION FOR HIGH QUALITY BREAD
Located at 8 rue du Cherche Midi in the 6th arrondissement of Paris, the original Poilâne, created in 1932, continues to be the flagship location of a bakery with international renown.
In staying true to its founding principles—making high quality bread for all—and in creatively joining the arts of living well and eating well, Poilâne has flourished, offering its savoir-faire across France and all over the world.
EXCEPTIONAL FLOUR, NATURAL SOURDOUGH
At Poilâne, we use only carefully selected stone-ground local grains, and follow an ancestral slow fermentation technique with our natural sourdough leaven. We take our duties as bakers seriously: each handmade batch showcases our passion for transforming nutrient-rich grains through fermentation to create healthy breads with unique tastes.
CREATING TODAY TO NOURISH TOMORROW
Animated by a search for the best, our teams are always working to develop new recipes featuring the unique combination of quality flours and slow fermentation. Our research starts with diverse grains and ends with new breads, biscuits, and pastries suitable for everyday and special moments alike.

You don’t have to be in Paris or London to enjoy freshly-baked Poilâne products. With our online boutique and over-night shipping, your bread is baked, packaged, and delivered right to you. A fast delivery of fresh products is our guarantee.
EATING WELL & LIVING WELL
Our purpose at Poilâne is to meet your expectations not only of eating well but of living well, each and every day. In addition to our breads, we offer an array of home goods and accessories designed to accompany and enhance your dining experience.
