Pauls is a chain but you kind of expect more . We had cappuccinos , omelette, baguette with cheese , pain de chocolate and teas . All okay but nothing amazing . Service was mediocre . The worst was the state of the toilets - frightening .

After passing many of these chain iutlets across Paris we stopped by one for a spot of lunch. We thought we were getting good value for an advertised €7-8 for a sandwich/salad, drink and dessert meal deal but it ended up costing us €21.5. We couldn't understand the cost increase despite our best efforts. We put this down to our... More

A fresh and crusty bread that I really liked. I took it early in the morning and it was delectable. Just try it.

The pastries certainly looked good. We ordered a chocolate croissant and a coffee. You stand in a long line to order and pay, then you stand in another line to get your coffee. The coffee tasted like hot water. The chocolate croissant was nothing to write home about. There so many better places in almost every street in Paris.

We were at Paul on the left bank. The place looks great with a case of wonderful looking pastries. We both had been walking quite a while so went to the bathroom to wash up first. Big mistake. I know this is Paris so don't expect much, but the place reeked, the soap dispenser was broken and looked like it... More

If you are in Paris its difficult to miss a Paul outlet! We had been to a few during our stay. The coffee is great. Croissants and hot dogs are not fresh...they need to be heated/grilled. If you find a friendly server they will do it for you. Chocolate based croissants and eclairs are very good. The macarons are very... More

Neighborhood Profile
Saint-Germain-des-Pres
In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops, ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants. Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine art school and small museums hide in unassuming squares. The neighborhood’s namesake church is the oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented musicians every weekend. The Luxembourg Gardens house the national senate, splendid lawns and flourishing flower beds. Famous faces and bourgeois Parisians frequent Saint Germain accompanied by the students of Rue Saint Guillaume and Rue des Saints-Pères. This is a neighborhood where afternoon people-watching from a café or playing cards in a brasserie are a key part of the daily fabric.
