We discovered Paul on our 2nd day of our 2 weeks in Paris. It was a 2 minute walk from our hotel and oh so much more economical than dining at the hotel for breakfast. We ended up having breakfast here every day and quickly fell into having a typical paris breakfast of grand coffee cream and a baquette..yumm I... More

Bread and pastries are delicious. Coffee is very average. Some of the staff doesn't speak basic English. I tried to order a cup of cappuccino with extra shot of espresso in it, the waiter couldn't understand what I want. So every time I went there it was a disaster with coffee and I never get what I wanted). Overall it's... More

This is a great place to grab a to-go coffee and a croissant at the counter. No dilly dally-ing when ordering. This is where the locals come and they have no patience for that.

Paul is a French-based bakery chain, with franchises in many countries, including the United States. It does a brisk business throughout Paris in myriad shops, and I sometimes stop by its Rue de Buci location when I want a quick breakfast in the morning during stays at nearby hotels. Most places serving breakfast don't open until 9 a.m., but Paul's... More

We stayed at a hotel nearby and it was just too convenient not to stop here for our first morning in Paris. We got the traditional croissant and coffee for a very reasonable price, and it was the best croissant I've had! The next morning I tried a chausson, and it was the best thing I've put in my mouth!... More

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

Neighbourhood Profile
Saint-Germain-des-Pres
In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops, ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants. Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine art school and small museums hide in unassuming squares. The neighbourhood’s namesake church is the oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented musicians every weekend. The Luxembourg Gardens house the national senate, splendid lawns and flourishing flower beds. Famous faces and bourgeois Parisians frequent Saint Germain accompanied by the students of Rue Saint Guillaume and Rue des Saints-Pères. This is a neighbourhood where afternoon people-watching from a café or playing cards in a brasserie are a key part of the daily fabric.
