Good coffee and great pastries, atmosphere resembling a French bar. I like to spend my breakfast time here, working with my laptop or reading a newspaper - free internet wifi connection available, decent speed. Prices in line with the bay area. Good point: is always open, including on Sundays and holidays!

Palo Alto has many nice places to sit for a coffee or a snack, but I like the Paris Baguette, or "PB." They have a huge selection of sweets and pastries, but they also have real food for a light lunch. TIP: The WiFi here is spotty.

The selection, and, from my perspective, the speed at which you can make your own selections with their trays and tongs, and the quality of our pastries and coffee and lattes makes this a great place to drop in. I'm not there often enough to know if the quality is consistent, but every time we've been there, we look forward... More

We went here to have a dessert after having a pizza in a nearby place. There were so many pastries to choose from which gets confusing because you wanna try them all! I got one that has mango on top and oh... it was so good! They have free wifi. I see students on their own little world studying, texting,... More

I had kind of late lunch on Saturday - salad and sandwich with Americano. All were about average. Small group seating was not easy. Table and chairs not clean... Probably, outside seating might have been better.

The Croissants are excellent, the Chocolate on Chocolate on chocolate cookie is Amazing! The food is good, cafeteria style with more options. The pastries are all good! For a quick bite, or to get your morning croissant with tea or coffee, its the place to go during a holiday!

Place was busy but line moved quickly and we had no problem finding seats. Great variety of pastries to choose from. All looked very artistically prepared and the ones we tried were very delicious. Priced reasonably.
