I keep coming to this cafe for its central location but every time there is something to deceive you: bad dessert, old bread, over priced coffee and of course bad internet. This cafe feels like stuck in history.

it is where you can enjoy a fine breakfast or a fine lunch. Bread is having a big variety there and the croissants are delicious as well. The place in downtown is really good to visit.

I always go to Paul for breakfast. It's simply delicious. I usually take the Petit Dejeuner Paul, and if I'm really hungry I take Petit Dejeuner Continental (with eggs). The croissants and the bread are always fresh, the jam is to die for and the cappuccino is just right!

Decided to go have brunch at Paul on a Saturday morning and immediately regretted our choice. The garden is with no doubt understaffed and the little staff working thought it is much more amusing to join the kitchen staff for a smoke and catching up chats outside on the sidewalk then tend to the clients. My partner had to go... More

You want to get a classy french breakfast? For sure the first choice will be Paul but you have to take into consideration the cost if you want to enjoy a rich breakfast with several choices. The croissant and bread are good to taste, as for the rest, it is same as other places.
