Good Place for Tea or Snacks

We stumbled upon Paul while seeking out a place for a cup of tea and an afternoon snack. It was the perfect choice for food and warm beverages, with surprisingly good pastries reminiscent of a recent trip to Paris. The café in Richmond had the feel of a one-of-a-kind establishment, so we were... read more

It makes the impression of an old style french café, but is operated by a chain. Which is nothing negative in this particular case. We loved it and had a wonderful tea-break with good hot drinks and tasty, fine cakes/pastries. We can clearly recommend it. Our visit was in October 2013... not 2014.

The pave poulet baguette is a favourite of mine - great bread with poppy seeds, lots of chicken and tomato and tasty mustard mayo. Staff are friendly but decor is getting a bit dark and dingy.

my office is right across the road from cafe Paul and it's definitely an all-time fave amongst myself and my colleagues. The owner remembers our faces AND names, and he is so wonderful to chat to and interacts with his customers. it makes us always want to go back there. As for the cakes, coffees and pastries - they are... More

This was originally a French family business There are many branches around London. There are many period pictures which contribute to a "continental atmosphere".They sell bread as well as a good selection of cakes Most branches are open about 12 hours a day which is handy after a day in London.The cakes are very good & the prices are reasonable.

We came here today for coffee, pastries and baguettes and this place did not disappoint. The raisin escargot were excellent as were the baguettes - fresh and with lots of filling. The coffee was ok rather than great and the girls were very friendly. The decor could do with an update. Prices about what you would expect for the quality.

Decor could be better and it's all a bit pricey, however the quality of cakes and pastries is brilliant. Good place to order cakes for big occasions. Coffee is generally OK.

Treated by my sister to whatever of my choice for a coffee break. Went for the chocolate eclaire which was good but a bit too chocolate-y for me. Floors could be a bit cleaner !

While staying in Richmond we went here to get lunch to take to eat in the park. My husband had a baguette which he enjoyed. I choose one of their boxed salads which was nice, however it came with half a baguette which was dry and stale and inedible.
