PaulBranches of this cool French cafe abound across the Channel, but this was the first one to open in London. Paul serves epic eclairs, excellent coffee and a fantastic array of tarts, cakes and pastries as well as serious sandwiches in elegant surroundings. With a selection of crepes and petit fours to sate every possible sugar-craving, Paul provides a taste of Paris in the heart of Covent Garden. The dark chocolate tart is pure, decadent bliss.

Take away available, plus a selection of breads and gateaux to buy. The preferred lunchtime destination of LondonTown.com staff...
