This is a chain found in France and they have delicious bakery treats. The pain au chocolate and the macaroons are great. So are the quiches, good for picnics to take away.

We went to Paul's at the Louvre location a couple of times. We had the baguette sandwiches. They were wonderful. On the morning that we left Paris, we went to the Paul's at CDG. I had an almond croissant and it was perfect. My husband had coconut flan. An unusual choice, but he enjoyed it.

As a first stop for starting the morning Paul in the centre of Saint Germain is an excellent way to commence a day in the Paris Arts district. The range of pastries and bread are modern works of classic French bakery and leave no doubt as to why this group have become such a successful franchise through Europe. Only quibble... More

We were staying in the St. Germain area and had a quick lunch on the day we needed to leave for the airport. I had a terrific burger on a ciabatta roll and my family had sandwiches - all came served with a small side salad and fries and were delicious. Our waiter was friendly and charming. If this is...

Paul is an international chain of French quick-serve restaurants. I went twice for lunch on my short stay in Paris because I wanted to eat food that wasn't going to break the bank. Together, my BF and I would have 1 salad, 1 sandwich, and 2 Cokes and it came to 17 euro. Not too bad for Paris prices!

My wife and I stopped here for a light lunch on the afternoon of our arrival in Paris. We shared the mixed cheese and meat plate with the house chablis. We then finished it off with a Nutella crepe and coffee. It was a Saturday afternoon and the street was packed with people and all the restaurants were busy. Even... More

We tried the bakery bistro across from the macaroon place in champs elessye. It was quick and tasty. We all got baguettes with some type of meat that were pre made. It was a quick easy and tasty meal that allowed us to recharge and keep touring. The service was fine. The only issue we has was the damn pigeons... More

A short walk from our hotel in Sainte Germain, this wonderful restaurant was bustling at breakfast time. Locals and tourists alike gather here for pastry and coffee or a more substantial breakfast. We were seated by the window by a delightful male server who was patient with my not so perfect French. We ordered croissants, pain au chocolat and 2... More
