Noteworthy boulangerie in 3rd or 4th?

Hi All - I know the Marais is filled w/ great boulangeries, but is there one in particular you love? We land around 730am so I'm thinking a good pastry/croissant will be in order. Rather than having to make a trek once we get to the apartment, I'd love to know somewhere in the area.

    Pain de Sucre might stand out as the best.
    Poîlane, mostly for their miche.
    Gérard Mulot, for the chocolate tarte and I like their chocolate almond croissant.
    Sacha Finkelsztajn for jewish-style pastries and desserts.
    Au Levain Du Marais has good croissants.

    Not exhaustive, but the neighborhood is a little short on standout croissants I think.

      A strong Plus 1 for RDT's croissants and baguettes, plus it's across the street from Genin, if you crave viennoiseries etc.

      Closer to rue Francs-Bourgeois, Le Moulin de Rosa on rue de Turenne has a dependable croissant and pain raisin.

      134RDT at 134 Rue de Turenne across the street from Jacques Genin.

        I bought croissants there a few months back and was disappointed. I would buy croissants at Pain de Sucre instead.
