    The best for me is Des Gateaux et du Pain in the 15th. Their croissants are also my favorite in Paris.

      At Laduree they have an item called Pain aux Raisin Canelle, pretty much a cinamon roll with raisins, THIS THING IS THE BEST. Not fancy just exceptionally well made, go and try one. No resemblence to those leaden piles of dough that pass as cinamon rolls in the US.

        probably not of too much help:
        the DH absolutely loves the ones at Landemaine (Voltaire, haven't been to the other 2), but I took one bite and decided that I did not like it, Landemaine is still my favorite boulangerie in the world though.

          Landemaine is definitely worth a try.
          Landemaine has excellent croissant au beurre, pain au chocolat, croissant aux amandes. I have not tried their pain aux raisins because I don't like the genre. Living among several award-winning boulangeries, including Delmontel, Grenier à Pain, Au Levain d'Antan, Moisan, I would still pick Landemaine as my fave boulangerie of the 'hood.
