Busy Place!

Stopped in for breakfast mid morning, and the place was hopping! Food was good, service friendly and efficient. Nothing wowing, but well above average.

Paul's place was the first thing that jumped up when doing a search on cheap and local places to eat in Merced. Its in the corner of a strip mall next to a couple of nail shops on G st. When you walk in it feels very much like a Marie Callendars or Carrows, complete with pie window display near... More

I hadn't eaten here in several years, but I'm not sure why. Had occasion to go here to use a gift certificate that the very generous owner donated to a local cancer fundraiser. I'll have to go more often. Love to eat where the locals congregate. Excellent friendly efficient servers who visited the table to check on us just the... More

This place is a very typical coffee shop/diner, reminiscent of Denny's except the menu doesn't change that often. It's not bad; it's not great. It does get pretty crowded however, because a lot of locals eat here. It's dependable, the service is pretty good and they do have daily specials. Overall a decent place to go for a sandwich or...

Had a banana cream pie to go and the pie had no flavor at all. It did have fresh bananas and whipped cream but even the whipped cream had no sugar or flavor. Definitely not going there for pie again.

Paul's is a one owner restaurant so it has the small diner/restaurant feeling. Busy, homey, friendly. We frequent it often.

My husband likes breakfast type foods and I would rather have a lunch type of food. Paul's has there whole menu all day. Not only that it was very good. I had the taco soup and a Blaster Croissant- both were delicious. My husband had the meat lovers omelet and it was filled with meat and he loved it. We'll... More

Paul's Place was full of locals the evening we ate there. We were seated quickly and asked if the draft was too much from the door. The food was fresh, crisp and delicious. We had very nice side salads to start, followed by prime rib. The prime rib was nicely seasoned but not overly so. The horseradish is mixed by... More
