Neighbourhood: Marylebone
Description: The narrow, winding Marylebone Lane and its wider continuation, Marylebone High Street, have retained much of the character of the original village, in spite of the march of progress, making this a delightful area to visit. Surprisingly close to Oxford Street, it couldn’t be more different in character. Try discovering it by slipping into St. Christopher’s Place from Oxford Street – look out for a very eccentric clock as the landmark to help you find it – then walk up to Wigmore Street, do a little right and left, and you are in Marylebone Lane. Keep going and you will arrive in the High Street, where you will find us at number 115 on the corner of Blandford Street. Here you can sit and enjoy a taste of France for breakfast, lunch, teas, coffees, cakes, iced drinks, or just buy any of these or our fabulous hand made bread to take away. In recent years Marylebone has become a great foodie destination, with some excellent independent food shops, many eateries, a popular Sunday Farmer’s Market and plenty of small shops of high quality to visit and enjoy for fashion, fragrance, jewellery, homeware and design. The Marylebone Summer Fayre, organised by the Howard de Walden Estate and usually held on a Sunday in the middle of June, is fantastic fun, with the whole area pedestrianised and given over to food and other market stalls, music performances, a pop-up cinema, children’s activities and more, and a good time is had by all. Also nearby is the Wallace Collection in Hertford House in Manchester Square, a national museum with 25 galleries displaying French 18th Century painting, furniture and porcelain with superb Old Master paintings and a world class armoury. Admission is free and it’s open 7 days a week. Our closest stations are Bond Street to the South (Central Line, Jubilee Line) or Baker Street to the North (Hammersmith & City Line, Circle Line, Jubilee Line, Bakerloo Line, Metropolitan Line). 28 seats are available. Disabled access available. Free wi-fi.

The Marylebone and Covent Garden Paul are always on our list on our frequent visits to London. The pastries are all delicious, but for us the standout pastry is the millefeuille; add a baguette (as a non meat eater I always have a choice) and a drink and a cup of coffee and you have an excellent lunch and a chance to relax for a while.

The waitresses are friendly and we love the small intimate feel of both cafes.

I wouldn't recommend eating there, but tea time is nice there. Their hot chocolate was very good and their pastries.

I buy takeout there to eat in the Park or to take home. Excellent breads, croissants, sandwiches, tartlets etc.

Have never bought anything there that I did not enjoy or feel was well prepared and baked. Not a great sweet eater but my wife is and she likes their products as well.

Very obliging staff

Friends and I popped in for a snack and hot drink at 6.10pm, having been pleased to see Paul was open until 7pm, but be warned, kitchen closes at 6pm. No signs to alert us to this, just a rude waitress bluntly announcing it as if we were stupid and should have known. If she'd handled it politely and gently let us know, then offered the pre-baked goods available in the store section, that would have been fine. But making a customer feel stupid and then making it clear you'd rather they hadn't come in at all, does not give a good impression. Macaroons and hot chocolate were tasty, but could not make up for bad taste left by poor service. We will not be back.

We love the Marylebone Paul because, along with the Covent Garden branch, it has a little specific sit-in menu serving delicious hot and cold food. Most Paul branches have seating for the take-away menu if you want to sit in, but these ones are a bit different and offer lovely sit-in menus. We go regularly (used to eat breakfast here every weekend) and have never been able to fault the service.
