Best Croissant (Concours du Meilleur Croissant au beurre AOC Charantes-Poitou) 18th place in 2010, 11th place in 2009, 7th place in 2008

Le Figaro (2011) Ranked #6 in their test of the city’s best strawberry tarts.

Dorie Greenspan (2010) “With visions of bread dancing in my head, what did I have…A ficelle from Boulangerie Julien whose shop is on the rue Saint Honore, away from fantasy breadland, steps from Les Halles and just where the locals want it.  A word of warning: Unless you’ve got time to wait, don’t go at lunch hour — Julien’s ready-made sandwiches are dejeuner faves.  And a tip:  If all you want is bread, you can jump the line and go directly to the back of the shop.”
