Reasonable prices, authentic light French café fare, a chic rustic atmosphere, and, above all, baked goods made with traditional artisan methods make this first outpost of a French chain worth a special drive. Pastries, especially the flaky-crusted buttery fruit tarts and chewy buttercream-filled macaroon sandwich cookies, are delectable, but Paul's heart is its breads, made from custom-grown/milled grain and long fermented for extraordinarily aromatic, chewy, crusty loaves (that conserve well, without preservatives). Eat-in dishes range from continental or more substantial breakfasts to lunch and dinner salads, quiches, crêpes, charcuterie or cheese plates, and super sandwiches.
