Small French patisserie in the back streets of Kyoto. Excellent pastries (the Jamon Croissant was great) and solid coffee.

Stop by for breakfast today. Pretty standard fare available in all Paul outlets globally. Coffee was ok but not exceptional.

Paul's has a great breakfast set for 540 yen. Comes with half a baguette sandwich, half a pastry and your choice of coffee or tea beverage. Delicious! The breads are fantastic too.

I like traditional Japanese breakfasts. But it's hard to find good ones unless you're staying in a ryokan. Paul's offers truly yummy French pastries, sandwiches, and good coffee. It is teensy bit pricey but worth the extra money.

City Center
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its
blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered
shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street
bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to
peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home
goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center
is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and
clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of
