Paul's coffee shop has been in our community for years, however the new owner has taken it to a new level. The restaurant is themed in U.S. Marine attire after the owners own service. They even made it to T.V. on a episode of Good Eats. The menu is good and the food is excellent, as well as the service.... More

Paul's is the kind of place you went to with you family when you were a kid - not a chain with everything tastes the same food. Owner is on site helping with the food. Good neighborhood vibe. Chicken fried steak and eggs comes on two plates it's so large a serving. Tastes like home!

I highly recommend the chili omelet! Real chili with no beans! Side of biscuits and gravy that had a great flavor! Service was quick and pleasant! A great place for breakfast or lunch.

This place was recommended by locals, so we decided to try. It has the quaint casual coffee shop atmosphere, nothing special but if you are tired of chain restaurants, I would recommend. We came on a Saturday morning and it was packed, but we only waited about 5 minutes for a table. Friendly staff, huge portions. Chicken fried steak and... More

Ordered waffles and bacon, took 15 min before she came to the table, then after I got the waffles, 15 more min before I had to tell her that I would like syrup with it, Morons and it was not even that busy, nothing special about this place and they don't have the respect enough to give veterans a little...

The food here is excellent, the staff is warm and friendly, lot's of local regulars, packed on weekends. Worth the wait. Mother's day and such holidays you have to go early.

We crave breakfast here! I love that they serve island-style meals like the loco moco or Portuguese sausage with rice and eggs because those aren't easy to find! I recently started eating pancakes here which are probably the best I've ever had. Very fluffy! The portions are a generous size but be warned... this is not fine dining spot and... More

Being on Diners, Drive Ins and Dives doesn't always make a place special. In this case, Paul's is really nothing more than just a solid diner. Situated in a strip mall, Paul's was very busy, so people must like it, and the food was solid. Diner furniture, diner menus and diner food - Not to say that is a bad... More
