Paul Boulangerie Café

  • Once PAUL sits at the table the whole bread oven experience is in your plate.”

    Started in 1889 at Croix France, PAUL is a well-known French bakery and has been serving the freshest and handcrafted bread in the last 125 years. It happens to be located at the ground floor of SM Aura.

    It is hard not to notice PAUL not only because it is situated near the mall entrance, but also because of the fancy black wall outside and the well-designed interior. The interior speaks very French with its vintage lamps, high drape curtains, elegant chairs and tables. It has the cozy warm ambiance of a library. You can choose to sit on the corner or side, if you prefer to have more privacy.

    Paul is open as early as 8am to serve breakfast. They have great-tasting pastries, bread, and tarts. The aroma of the bread just draws customers inside. One of the must-try is the traditional croissant. PAUL only uses the best quality of flours for their loaves; this special flour comes all the way from France. Once you’re there, don’t forget to try the crispy and moist macaroons; they are also freshly flown-in all the way from France.

    Paul Boulagerie Cafe is not only a bakery but also a restaurant. I am obsessed with the croquet-madam (Php 420); it is the combination of Farmer’s ham, layers of Emmental cheese, cream, pain de mie topped with a fried egg. It was so good, the bread was soft and it completed the gooeyness of the cheese. SARAP!

    Delicious sautéed beef onions, fresh mushroom and leeks topped with melted cheddar cheese.

    The sautéed beef was tender and the combination of cheddar cheese and mushroom is such a delight!

     The staffs are nice, dapper and knowledgeable about the menu. I suggest you go during the weekdays or lean hours since it gets a little crazy on busy days. Even though it’s a bit pricey, the bread and patisseries combined with a traditional culinary heritage are worth the money.

    They will open their second branch in Bench Tower, Crescent Park BGC, so you better watch out for it. Hurray for another piece of Paris in Manila!
