Paul Bakery & Restaurant was established in France in 1889 and offers an extensive selection of refined French inspired recipes with an unrivalled excellence in French baking and patisserie. Conveniently located at the main entrance of City Mall and open from breakfast until dinner, Paul offers a relaxing a casual atmosphere for an enjoyable dining experience any time of day. Catering and corporate facilitates are also available.


Each shop has its own personality while displaying the carefully selected objects and antique furniture that have become the charming hallmark of a Paul shop. The country-style décor is an essential aspect of a Paul shop. The materials used, the colours, the furniture are all in perfect harmony with the age-old traditions of the baker. Brick, wood, Burgundy stone combine to give Paul shops a genuine old-fashioned look and feel in keeping with our traditional baking.

The patina of age, kitchen utensils, earthenware floor tiles, carved woodwork and old engravings combine to create a lovely old-fashioned ambience, made even more attractive and welcoming by the delicious smell of new baked bread straight from the oven. Architects and designers create the décor for each shop, taking into account its immediate surroundings as well as the traditional Paul look and feel.


"French-style" bread has been a real religion to passion in our family for over 120 years. Our passion and demanding expectations of quality products have been handed down through five generations. Our French founders have been making bread and patisserie with passion since 1889: “We still bake our bread in the traditional, hand-crafted way, using only fresh, natural ingredients”. Our recipes, like our principles, are ‘Pure and Simple’. Paul recipes leave no room for compromise: carefully selected ingredients, fresh products, polished presentation. At Paul we assure you of our promise of quality with one unique aim: your pleasure.

Today Paul has a network of over 40 bakery-patisseries across the world, supplying more than 5 million customers every month (in France) with plain and fancy bread, Viennese pastries, small cakes and desserts, as well as sandwiches made to order.


Paul’s success story dates back to its start as a humble bakery in northern France over 120 years ago. The enormous respect for tradition and the use of the finest quality ingredients have made Paul what it is today – an international name with over 450 shops worldwide. Currently, there are more than 35 branches across 9 countries in the Middle East & North Africa. Our expansion continues with additional 20 stores opening in the region in the coming year.

The origins of Paul can be traced to a bakery set up by Charlemagne Mayot near Lille in northern France in 1889. In 1908, his son Edmond took over the family business with his wife Victorine. Their daughter, Suzanne, married Julien Holder and the couple set up their own bakery also in Lille in 1935. The couple prospered and soon took over the famous Paul bakery in Lille, retaining its name for their operations. After Julien passed away, their son, Francis, who had started working in the family business from 1953, took over and started the expansion of the business. He opened more branches and installed the signature Paul wood-fired oven that operated in full view of the customers. The entire traditional process of French bread-making could be seen by customers at Paul, allowing them to rediscover the authentic quality and taste of traditional breads, which has since become a Paul trademark.

The 1980s saw some important milestones with Paul opening its first outlet outside France in Barcelona, Spain, beginning the international expansion of the brand. Two years later it opened its first “Salon de The” and started serving light meals. By 1993, sustainability had become central to Paul’s operations and Francis Holder introduced a line of specialty breads using sustainably produced winter wheat. He also introduced the distinctive black store fronts which has become Paul’s identity worldwide. When his son Maxime took over as CEO in 2005, Paul was an international name. Under him, the brand has expanded into 24 countries, spanning the globe from the USA to Japan with 453 restaurants serving 5 million customers per month and selling more than 4 million loaves of bread. Defending the brand’s unique “Art de vivre a la Francaise” (Art of living, the French way), Maxime is guiding it into a modern world while retaining its traditions of quality and dedication, and proving the truth of Paul’s philosophy: “Excellent bread depends on excellent ingredients and time-honoured methods of production.”
