The bread is amazing, not to mention the pastries,sandwiches and salads which are equally delicious. It's a great place for breakfast too before hitting the shops and as a francophile, as soon as I enter and smell the bread and pastries I am immediately transported back to my days living 'en France'!

Apparently you can now learn how to bake their bread at the Covent Garden branch (and have Afternooon Tea whilst it's baking - what a good idea!) I'm also impressed with their website too where there are tips on French manners/etiquette (with amusing references to Paul products)and you can also have a quick French lesson .........
