We stayed at a hotel nearby and it was just too convenient not to stop here for our first morning in Paris. We got the traditional croissant and coffee for a very reasonable price, and it was the best croissant I've had! The next morning I tried a chausson, and it was the best thing I've put in my mouth!... More

A delicious morning stop for pastries and espresso. We stopped 3 straight mornings here after searching nearby for other options. Paul was not only tasty but reasonably priced.

The section of pastries and sandwiches is quite good, and they serve coffee drinks as well. Reasonably priced. The ham and cheese sandwich is simple - ham, cheese, and butter on a delicious baguette - delicious and not at all overdone. There is outdoor seating and this location offers a wonderful opportunity to people watch. FYI: Smoking is allowed at... More

PAUL turns out to be a chain of restaurants which is also expanding outside of France, and for good reasons. Excellent French bakery goods, coupled with other French food make this "coffee shop" or bistro a simple, authentic and high quality place to go to, any hour of the day. It made us extremely happy to see a PAUL branch... More

This beautiful bakery has the best, most buttery palmiers in all of Paris. It's worth a trip just to have one of these!

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

Neighbourhood Profile
Saint-Germain-des-Pres
In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops, ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants. Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine art school and small museums hide in unassuming squares. The neighbourhood’s namesake church is the oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented musicians every weekend. The Luxembourg Gardens house the national senate, splendid lawns and flourishing flower beds. Famous faces and bourgeois Parisians frequent Saint Germain accompanied by the students of Rue Saint Guillaume and Rue des Saints-Pères. This is a neighbourhood where afternoon people-watching from a café or playing cards in a brasserie are a key part of the daily fabric.
