Paul's is an excellent one of a kind greasy spoon in the chain restaurants. Good service and good food. Huge portions too!

Friendly personnel, down home cooking and the biggest cinnamon buns you've ever been served. Menu is varied: steak and eggs, French toast, ala carte menu and delicious coffee.Paul's stops serving at 2 p.m. so head there for a great morning start or a tasty noon day munch. Prices are very reasonable too.

Was recommended to me, should have not listened. It's OK at best. When the best part of the meal is toast, well you know the rest.

Quaint little place with really good food and service. If you want a fresh breakfast with good portions this place is for you. Much better than any of the local chains!!!

My breakfast eggs and bacon were over cooked.. The service was bad. The waitress totally ignored me, didn't even offer more coffee. The place was dirty and needs painting.
