    Great spot! You MUST have a macaroon! They are HUGE! The ham and cheese cross isn't was delicious. Get coffee there and ask for a to go cup. You get more coffee! Some for now and some for later.

    The coffee here is amazingly good. If you order "for here" they give you an entire pot of coffee per person, about 12-16oz each, costing you about $2. Not bad for this coffee snob. Haha. Enjoy!

    If you like eggs Benedict, order the eggs Benedict with salmon. Enough for 2 people. I like the eggs scrambled. The BEST ever!!!

    A hip place to have lunch. French inspired food. The baguettes look scrumptious, the apricot desert I ate was so-so. Tea was VERY good.

    The quiche Lorraine is the closest thing to perfection that you will find in a quiche ... No doubt!

    I was surprised that you could not get the small macarons. The big ones are okay. Not as soft and airy as other macarons I have had before. Paul's is an okay place.
