The high-quality breads that this international French bakery/restaurant chain offers contain at least two kinds of wheat flour and no artificial butter. Careful, meticulous baking and the exclusive use of top-quality ingredients ensure every Paul bakery in the world provides consistent quality products. The attractive, very European surroundings here underline the French-ness of this establishment and its dine-in and take-out products.--By Ann Li, translated by Angel Pu
