This is a wonderful patisserie with mouthwatering choices. I love their macaroons. If you want a nice breakfast this is my favorite place. It is also a great place to enjoy teatime.

We visited Paul while in the area for a coffee and a few pastries. The staff were helpful with suggesting what to try when taking our order. The coffee was tasty and pastries were wonderful. I recommend a visit.

Stopped in by recommendation for an eclair, and I wasn't disappointed! Great ambience- cute little shop. The food itself was delicious as anticipated- I also had strawberry merengue (yum!). Definitely worth a trip for some amazing, old-fashioned dessert.

Every time I want a nice chocolate pastry or a nice cappuccino together with a French atmosphere I go to Paul in Baker Street! (On Marylebone High Street) The last time I’ve been there on a Sunday morning - the café has been modernized! Fresh,...More

and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping
enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's
greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the
