It's Paul so it's always good like the ones in Paris but expensive for South Africa! I spent 11$ for an sandwich and a dessert. Place is really clean in a secure area of Johanesburg.

This is second restaurant I've ordered pasta at and thoroughly enjoyed it. I don't know if its the smoky tender chicken or lovely roasted pine nuts in that pasta, but damn it was delicious. I ordered pineapple/mint smoothie (pass on that) it is not their forte, don't. Was surprised by their reasonable prices. Great cafe to enjoy and if weather permits sit outside and enjoy the sights and sound of Melrose Arch.

Paul’s is trendy and all that goes with wanting great baked goods, but to be charged R29 for an Espresso Machiato that was both cold and bitter is taking it a bit far. Hate being ripped off.

Unfortunately Paul does not take reservations on a weekend. I tried to arrange a brunch for 11am on a Sunday morning for 10 people. I was advised to call slightly beforehand since they do not take reservations. Despite having called 40 mins before our arrival time we were seated only at 12:00- and hour and a half after we called, with an hours wait outside the cafe. In the interim couples of 2 or families of 3 were seated immediately.

Despite the unreasonable wait the food was pleasant. We were “allowed” to have breakfast despite the fact that the breakfast menu ended at 11:00am. Overall the food is good and the macaroons close to those that can be found in Paris.

Surprised at variety of choices of breads and fillings, salads looked amazing. Food arrived quickly and with a smile. Very central location with plenty of seating outside.
