I love the looks of this shop, it beats the typical PB ones out there. New, modern, white on white on white! Whenever I have dinner plans for a celebration in downtown Palo Alto, I place an order or pick up a cake here. The pastries and cakes are light, airy, and not overly sweet.

I LOVE Paris Baguette! Korean pastries...this location is pretty big with seats inside and outside for those nice days. The bench seats are even quilted...swanky! I like the way this one is decorated...
It's pastry heaven!!!! Yummmm

Swanky yet casual decor, the dining area looks impeccably "high tech / space age" to use a throwback term. Free Wifi (password at the cashier).
The layout slightly reminds me of Kee Wah in Cupertino.
However around 8 AM, not everything is available, a little less than half the selections.
The worst part is that the baked goods and pastries (self serve section) are not labeled by name (or ingredients) and prices, and are not being labeled as they put the items out from the baking area, and not everything is obvious as to what they are, or what are their contents. Am I looking at a sweet potato filling, taro, or mystery fruit? Perhaps the staff are still getting ready, but why not put the labels and prices out first as the goods are put on display for the purchasing?
However with that said, the croissant hot dog (open faced) looks like a mondo calorific mess (dirty, decadent, evil looking, almost sinful with a hellfire burnt BBQ'd look, but not as ugly as the Sarlacc pit monster that swallowed Boba Fett), yet is one of the best breakfast hot dogs so far (crushing Sogo Bakery or Sheng Kee) especially with the rich flakey crispy cornetto like texture, although slightly lacking in the buttery department compared to its Euro counterpart (Caffe Venezia in its prior incarnation, Caffe Del Doge, when the Italiano barristas were flown in for training, also had an Italian pastry chef training the staff on how to make cornettos, aka Italian crossiants, mindblowing disgustingly delicious when piping hot from the ovens).
Ritual Roasters coffee? Sadly even with a brand name, the iced mocha was not up to par, compared to the late Palo Alto location of Satura Cakes. At $4.50 for a large, the Iced Mocha Tesora from Philz is a much better buy in comparison.

This place is simply amazing... all of the pastry, pies, bread, sandwiches and coffee lovers, this is the place to go.
Get your tray and pick your favorites from their 'buffet style' counter filled with super tasty and eye candy goodies. If you are not totally satisfied with the stuff you got, choose a slice of pie from their display, that is also great.
Your last task is to choose a coffee to help you enjoying all the flavors ;)
