Always busy for breakfast but that's because it is so delicious ! Great service and friendly staff. A must try! The omelet are huge... Can easily be shared and they offer a variety to choose from.

We have been dining at Paul's for over 15 years. It is a mandatory stop when we are visiting family. The food is always great and served with a smile. Not the speediest service though.

This is the 2nd time I've been here. Food was just ok. Tasteless and bland. Felt sick after eating here. My daughter wouldn't even eat her cheese burger!

Nothing ever tasted bad. It's just pretty bland. I guess it's perfect for the older crowd it draws. The nachos are good tho.

We ate here both mornings we were in Merced. Great diner for breakfast. Tried the egg & chorizo enchiladas - they were delicious. Good coffee.

Visiting familly in Merced, we went to Paul's for breakfast. Nice staff and good atmosphere. Before orders taken, coffee brought was Excellent. Great country Benedict eggs with beans, potatoes and toast. Portuguese linguica is tasty. That also comes with same sides above. Eggs well done are good. Not pricey at all. We'll come back when seeing familly.

Every month I come to MERCED to visit my grandchildren and we usually stop in at Paul's Place for at least one meal. They have the best food around. The staff is always friendly.

This was a very cute place, the servers seated us quickly and our food arrived even quicker. The food was good, not great, but I love the waitstaff and their eagerness to help. My only complaint would be proximity to other tables but it's really not too big a deal.

I had breakfast there while visiting family and found the food to be delicious and the service excellent. The staff is friendly, professional and seems to enjoy their work and working environment.
