Baguette Ham and Cheese!!!

We Stooped at every Paul's and got a Baguette sandwich no matter what! We loved them so much! We almost missed boarding our flight because I waited on line to get one last Baguette!

I went here a number of times during my two week stay. We had an apartment around the corner from this bakery. Our first time was for breakfast and it was early but our waiter was quite charming. Over the course of the next 13 days we went here for baked goods, breads and of course the hot chocolate. We... More

Rue de Buci is one of our favourite streets in Paris and the fact that it hosts a PAUL Bakery Shop only adds to the feel-good-factor. We go here especially to have breakfast (or lunch) at least once every time we are in Paris! In summer you can sit outside but do explore the room inside as well; very nice... More

"Paul" is all over the world! What may be good, may be bad ... At Rue de Buci, in the very heart of Saint-Germain de Prés quarter in Paris, "Paul" is generally a good option for breakfast, light meals or just for a quick coffee. Last June, we found "Paul's" breakfast at its general standards and prices, but quite understaffed.... More

We have been. Coming to this rstaurant for many years and this time we were disappointed in the service. Clients were lined up to be seated while the restaurant had many empty tables but no one to seat the waiting customers. We left after waiting ten minutes..this waiting happened every time we went so this wasn't an isolated experience. We... More

The bakery is excellent by any measure but this is a chain and they do process people more than your basic neighborhood café. Good quality but mediocre service. Also, a bit pricey.

Paul is a very good place to have breakfast, a light lunch or a coffee break. Whatever we tried is so far good. But especially Tarte au citron is my family's fav. There is either a tea room inside or free tables outside. To have a tea/coffee with a tarte at the outside tables and watch the life going out... More

Multiple locations and they have the best croissants and cheese bread sticks in Paris. Very good coffee as well. Great way to start your day.

Don't know how many Paul bakeries there are in Paris, but there are several at least. We stopped at the one by the Garnier Opera for a late breakfast while we waited for our tour time. We had Chocolate croissants and drinks and the pastries were as good as any we had in Paris. But then we didn't have a... More
