So yummy we went back

We figured that since this was a "chain" it was worth a try but we were surprised how great the service was (even on busy Champs Elysees) and how fantastic the baked goods are. Coffee was ok, nice outdoor eating area (with heated warmers for cold days), and tasty but forgettable baked treats. Well... read more

When in Paris and dying for a baguette, this is a good place to try (if you don't want to get one off the street). They speak English well in most of the locations, and the bread is really good! Also, fairly cheap, which is always nice after splurging on a vacation!

Paul’s is a great little place to stop off for a bite to eat while on the Champs Elysees. This is shown by the queue that was never less than 10 people while we were there. The staff spoke English as well which is handy. We had a couple of baguettes and a lemon and raspberry tart. Food was lovely... More

Oh, I had the best lemon (citron) tarte here - so good that I had to buy an extra to take home for later :). Delicious sandwiches, on the best bread (crusty and chewy), and they serve probably one of the best pain au chocolates I have ever had. Yum!!

So, its important to do as "the Roman's do".... we ate our first pain au chocolat in Paris at the Paul in the Louvre. Excellent pastries and service. We sat and enjoyed our tea and pastry while watching the Louvre fill up. MUST DO in Paris..

Yes, there I had the best hot chocolate I ever had. But the eclairs were awesome too. It is incredible how a cup of hot chocolate gets your mood up again in a cold rainy day. The atmosphere is just great, and the staff is very friendly. Don't even try to go to SB, just get yourself to Paul and... More

Having had a very early breakfast I started being hungry around 11 and didn't feel like waiting for the lunch time so I headed into Paul's for a small bite. I chose at random a baguette sandwich with salami. It was by far the best sandwich I had in a very, very ling time. Baguette heaven as one other reviewer... More

Had a quick break at champs élysées while visiting Paris. The baguettes were tasty, so was the macaron. However, the girl who served us wasn't really professional chatting with her colleagues and having a chewing gum while we were ordering. In addition, we were put off by the pigeons that were flying in the shop and...littering the place!!!

Neighborhood Profile
Opera / Bourse
The neighborhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades, and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here, modern day workers continue to take advantage of the legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theaters, and cinemas sit side by side with French bistros predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in another. The area is most famous for the Palais Garnier opera house and glamorous department stores.
