$-$$ FAIR PRICE. For a massive global franchise the prices are fair. $9 for a cheese and ham baguette is a good deal in Vancouver. $12 for a croissant salmon sandwich, $13 for a tuna baguette sandwich. (Siegel’s Bagels by comparison has $12.95 Salmon Bagel sandwich, and Rosemary Rocksalt $12.75 Salmon sandwich. Cactus Club and Earls burgers are $18+)
OK! Tuna baguette / Ham Cheese sandwich were tasty, and had lots of fillings. Bread is baked in house. Their baguette recipe is more dense than airy or crispy. Croissant Salmon sandwich was ok, portion size could be bigger or include extras. (See Kozak Giant Croissants). Drinks and pastries were good.
GOOD! Staff at counter were friendly, communicated well, good explanations and took orders fast. Servers at the tables are also helpful even if you don’t reserve a table for table service.
Overall, SATISFIED. Paul Bakery Cafe on Robson serves up French food in relaxed atmosphere. Similar to Breka Bakery but with a smaller selection of pastries. This style of restaurant is a perfect fit for Robson.
