Oh Paul, what can I say other than you have to go here. Forget starbucks, it is crap! Nothing is fresh or well made and it is way too overpriced for it to be worth it. Paul is a bakery and patisserie, if the smell of fresh baked goods doesn’t get you in the door you must have a cold!Everything on the menu looks amazing, their pastry is delicious and their coffee is excellent, doesn’t taste bitter or over filtered, they have actual proper baristas. I definitely recommend here for breakfast you can eat in or take away so if you wanted you could to go to St. James Park and have a stroll. Paul also opens early, 7am on Monday – Saturdays and 8am on Sundays, so perfect for people who like to get up and go.
They are all over the city so you are sure to find one close to your hotel or work place. Definitely go find one and have a coffee and a delicious pain au chocolat.
