Paul's at the Tyson's Galleria offers excellent pastries, coffee, hot chocolate, bread, and a variety of sandwiches. Although popular, lines move quickly. The staff is welcoming and it is grand to be welcomed with a Bonjour to a french cafe.

The deserts are wonderful, and the location is a great place to meet friends for coffee/tea. Well furnished, the opposite of Starbucks.

Popped in while shopping at Galleria - seated quickly, soup and sandwich was up to Paul's standard - I think the last time we at at one was in Dubai, from a foggy memory. Didn't have any other pastry, but it sure looked good.

The pastries here were all very good on our several visits. The different coffees however were excellently prepared and tasty! They don't automatically ask you to heat the pastries, so that's odd since some of them, especially the croissants, could stand a 30 second shot...More

We were given a burnt chocolate croissant. So much so that you could smell it when the bag was opened. Nothing more to say.

Lovely location and warm and welcoming interior. The food, we were there for breakfast, was delicious and the espresso was wonderful. Staff was a little snooty and slow but the food and drink made up for it!

Its not a reservation restaurant. It’s line order and then you sit down at an open table. Weekends at lunch time get crazy busy. If you get there right at 11am you should be able to find a table (weekdays that is)
