Perhaps the best thing I can say is that we were surprised that this was a chain. It gives the impression of a local coffee shop. The staff were pleasant and had the sort of energy that you would expect in a local shop. The...More

Nice place for breakfast and the classic Brussels delicatessen. Warm and friendly ambiance. The coffee (not espresso) is like typical American coffees.

Great place for lunch. Can eat inside or out. Had delicious soup with a sandwich. Nice variety of sandwiches to choose from. Friendly staff. Seems very popular with the locals so it must be good.

Paul, a French bakery chain and offers a range of yummy baked goods :) We had a raisin scone-like bread and pan de chocola--both were good! The sales was also a friendly person :) フランスのパンチェーンですが、おいしかったですよ。ベルギーはいまいち観光客対応が悪いんですが、こちらの店員はフレンドリーでした。朝食やおやつにお勧めです。ランチもできます。

Ordered omlettes, very mediocre Salad with omlette- only baby leaves, no tomatoes? No peppers? Bread was terrific. Coffee - automatic machine was not working. Surprised such a high level boulangerrie would not use a proper manual espresso machine instead.

This bakery is the perfect place to grab something delicious on the fly! My husband and I walked in to the aroma of coffee and fresh pastry. It was hard to decide on what to try because we are American. It was our first trip...More

Bread is just heavenly tasty. I can eat it without anything else and would be quite happy. Good coffee and croissants as well.
