Great place for good coffee and delicious cakes, eclairs are the best. Atmosphere is nice and relaxing but the service must be improved.

This PAUL location is very hit and miss. The bakery is not always fresh, the atmosphere is crowded and messy, and the service is slow.

We are fans of Paul's having travelled widely in France. We came here for breakfast and were disappointed. The breakfast choice was quite limited. Standard vienoisserie and not much else. The staff messed up our very simple order. Twice!
