“Expensive Paris comes to the area”
Review of Paris Baguette

Paris Baguette
Ranked #2 of 11 Bakeries in Palo Alto
Cuisines: French
Restaurant details
Reviewed 24 May 2014

This patisserie offers delicious french pastries in a wide variety and accompanies them with a wide selection of coffees and teas. It is open late, and you wander down the aisles selecting your choices. There is no service (don't think the waiter is snubbing you—there is no waiter coming by), and even the baristas are a bit disconnected so you never know when your beverage is ready without asking and hoping.

The challenge is that it is probably more expensive than Paris with its Euro! Way overpriced for the pastries (the quality is good), and for the beverages.

Also, the seating area is a disaster! Ripped cushions and scratched tables (this is a fairly new restaurant) and not terribly clean, either. Don't wear your best clothes here. Why this is so is a puzzle—nice community, expensive, tasty food. Do young people trash it at lunch? Are diners angry at the cost? Doesn't the management care about how shabby it is? We'll go back when we're wearing jeans.

Paris Baguette has a variety of breads and pastries,cakes and other goodies available.As is the style of Asian pastries,they are often less sweet and lighter in texture.The interior is very clean and modern,lots of room inside but it does get busy in a hurry here.
So grab a tray,snatch up some tongs and get busy grabbing the delicious treats Paris Baguette offers...

Stopped in for dessert and coffee
Quasi european style but fell short

Good pastries, ok coffee. A bit of an identity crisis in terms of some asian some European pastries

Been to this spot on a number of occasions to eat-in and take-out! They have a great selection of sweet and savory pastries. The coffee / espresso type drinks are excellent too! While finishing up an espresso and pastries with my friend, he said that he had heard the place had cronuts! I had only heard of cronuts on NPR (National Public Radio). LOL So I had to try one and I was not disappointed.

Nice place to stop in the middle of downtown area for an expresso and pastry. The little sandwiches are good too, but I would say, not the main event! If you are looking for a carb load--this is your place!
