“The perfect lunch when you are shopping”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014

I usually get the lunch in Paul when I´m shopping in any mall of Doha: Lagoona, Landmark or Villagio. Why? because the staff serve very quick and the food is fresh.
It is a French brand, and it´s famous for its delicious bread, some difficult to find in Doha. It is also a good patisserie and a nice place for breakfast.
Respect the lunch, the menu is variated, with a lot of salads, soups, quiche, fish, chicken and sandwiches.
It´s a little bit expensive in my opinion, but is so difficult to find a fresh salad in Doha that I don´t care to pay more. Just sometimes the ingredients are not so good than you expect: the crab and salmon salad doesn´t have real crab, and the mango salad doesn´t have good mango.
The portion of the salads are very big, just enjoy!

Anyway, is one of my favorite restaurant in Doha to buy bread and for a fast-food healthy lunch.
Perfect place as you go alone, with friends or family.

“Great place for breakfast, gateau, and bread.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2014

If it wasn't for Paul, there would be no good bread in Qatar. When you visit - take home a loaf of pain complete or 6 cereales. A great place for breakfast - and more reasonably priced than Paris. We order the complete breakfast - omelette & salad, fresh-squeezed orange juice, pastry, baguette, jam, butter, cafe creme. Enjoy ! This is one of the best attractions in Doha and one of our favorite bfst venues. The 'fleur de lis' chocolate cake is surprisingly good. When you crave France - come to Paul.

“Spot On”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2014

I really liked Paul Café. I was very tired from flying in the night before, and had a meeting at Paul first thing in the morning. I was met with a polite and good service, delicious espresso, and very good food. I loved the bread and jam choices. We were not hurried, the food was properly served and delicious, and frankly the time slipped by quite quickly. It was over too soon! I had an omelette and it was quite nice- fresh and fluffy but not too heavy. The croissant was amazing. Overall this is a very nice pâtisserie. I enjoyed breakfast there, and I was at the Landmark Mall location.

“Excellent Breakfasts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2014

I can only comment on the Cafe PAUL in Landmark Mall. We eat here every Friday morning at 9.30am. The staff know us by name, and have a Parisian and Continental breakfast waiting for us. Croissants are almost always fresh at this time, and the baguettes are still warm from the oven. We have noticed that PAUL is becoming more and more busy at this time of Friday mornigns, and this is perhaps due to its popularity amongst the expat community. Excellent breakfasts, friendly service (though oftentime harangued and harrassed by 'local' clientele who have money but no manners!), and brilliant evening meals.

“Good pattiserie”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

There are several branches of Paul's in Doha but we usually frequent the Lagoona Mall branch as it is near to where we live. The breakfast set menu is of good value but the rest of the choices are on quite a steep side esp. the cakes (compared to the Paul's Dubai prices). The breads are good and they have quite a selection. One thing about having a meal at Paul's, the drinks always arrive much later than the food. One will run into the risk of choking on one's food if not careful! Service is pretty average esp. in the Villagio branch.
