Several cities have "Paul's". If first went to one in Miami and was happy when one came to Washington, DC. The drinks/desserts/breads/food is good. Quick service.

This was a great coffee/pastry shop. Every single thing in the case looked delicious. We had coffees and croissants and it didn't disappoint! I would definitely visit here again if in D.C.

I visit the Paul chain whenever I am in France or Belgium. Super bread, divine sandwiches, and wonderful cakes. A wonderful surprise to find one whilst on holiday in the USA.

Authentic French patisserie with beautiful presentation. No formal seating but you feel like youu are in a Parisian. Sidewalk cafe. The cafe au lait, croissants and all the soups are to die for. If dieting pass this by!,,

I ate breakfast twice at Paul's Bakery recently. Both days I had the mushroom/cheese/bacon omelet which was very good. It came with greens with a light dressing which was unusual, along with a small portion of bacon. Coffee is excellent. I just wish they served...More
