Recommendations for boulangerie, fromagerie, traiteur near Poissoniere Metro?

Hello - I am renting an apartment on Rue des Messageries, very close to the Poissoniere Metro. I'm doing research (too much - this is very distracting when I should be doing other things like, um...working!) and have a good list and game plan in the works that I hope to run by you amazing hounds soon.

But I must ask for some advice now, in the early planning stages. Since I plan to eat quite a bit in the apartment, I would like your recs for the types of places I have listed that are close by - i.e. not "destination" examples, just ones you particularly like that I can get easily. If you would give your recs with specific examples of what you like in any given place, and why, I will be particularly grateful!

Bakery/cafe - I have Du Pain et Des Idees noted, are there any other particularly notable baguette/croissant/bread places close by? This would ideally be the place I could sit at for coffee and croissant while deciding what to do that day, or the place that I could grab a baguette or levain (for example) to eat with fridge stuff for lunch or dinner.

Cheese shop - I think quite a few of my dinners will include bread, cheese and a salad, so finding one with Chowhound approval near the apartment is important to me. I will likely come home with delights from destination fromageries I have noted, but if there is a particular one close, that would be helpful.

Traiteur - I'm learning, I believe, that this is a place where I can get cooked things to take home. Does this include charcuterie, or should I make that a separate category? Is this the place that I can grab a roasted chicken for dinner after a long day? What are your recs close by?

Thanks for all the great stuff already posted, and for any help you can give in this particular post!
