Paul Bakery and Café

My quest to find the best cafes through my travels has led me to Georgetown, DC. Not only do they serve amazingly smooth coffee, but this place is a pastry haven. We actually met the folks from Paul at a foodie event called Breast Cancer Bites. We got little samplings from the show and we really wanted to check them out. We were ecstatic to learn that Paul would be opening a new location in Georgetown. Their doors opened November 7th in an old and beautiful 1889 brick building that once housed the historic City Tavern.

If you’re in the Georgetown area this season doing a little holiday shopping, we highly recommend taking a break at Paul. Unwind over a latte and a gooey pastry bite. Trust me, you won’t regret it.

Here are just a few of our recommendations:

Their new pumpkin seed bread is out-of-this-world good. Soft and delicate on the inside but crisp and nutty on the outside; kind of makes you want to have autumn year around.  Make a special trip to DC just to pick up a loaf, I know I will.

Their chocolate croissants are to die for. This sweet and light pastry instantly reminds us of brunch in Paris. When we bite into this flaky piece of joy, we close our eyes and image us in Paris, sitting on a balcony overlooking the city. Oh la la. Talk about a ‘mindcation’.

Paul BakeryOn the very top of our list are these little pillows of  love. Paul makes some of the best macarons you’ll find. They’re perfectly crunchy on the outside and soft and decadent on the inside. They are truly one of the best things we’ve eaten. Their play on flavors brings a modern twist to a classic dessert, like pistachio and caramel. Of course they also keep it simple with chocolate, vanilla and strawberry. You can buy these little cuties in a box of 12 for $14. You get two of each flavor. You actually might want to buy 5 boxes as they will go fast.

Thanks Paul for putting love into your baked treats. We can’t wait to come back.

Paul Bakery can be located at 1078 Wisconsin Ave. NW, Washington, DC 20007 (Located at the SW corner of Wisconsin & M St’s., between the Banana Republic and the entrance to the Georgetown Park parking garage.).
