Pretty good French pastries, can do with better service Jul 07, 2012
Been wanting to check out the Paul Bakery since I love everything French.
Usually there is a long queue but I was lucky I came before the crowd.
I love the ambience and of coz all the pastries on display.
Tried the Tarte au Chocolat and the Cafe Gourmet set which consists of long black coffee, 2 mini macaroons, a choc cake and creme brulee (my fav!).
The creme brulee was delightful, it had that really nice crunchy feel when you tap it.
The Tarte au Chocolat, simply to die for or maybe coz I'm just bias.
The food is delightful but the same can't be said for the service.
I was seated near the kitchen and nearly 3 times the wait staff nearly skidded into my table due to the flooring.
Call it a job hazard, but as a quality improvement professional, I can think of several improvement ideas starting with the work safety, the ill-fitting uniform and definitely the language of the staff (can overhear a few of them complaining about customers from certain tables etc in the local language).
