Kiosque Paul takeaway in Paris
The Paul is a kiosk located within the Tuileries Gardens between the Musee du Louvre museum and the Place de la Concorde near to sculptures from artists such as Henry Moore, Jean Dubuffet and Roy Lichtenstein.
It is also classed as within the Jardin du Carrousel section near the Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel and close to sculptures from Auguste Rodin and approximately twenty statues by Aristide Maillol, who were both French sculptors, and in fact there are museums in Paris dedicated to them called the Musee Rodin and the Musee Maillol.
About Kiosque Paul
You will find that the Kiosque Paul is a snack kiosk that provides a takeaway service of pastries, pies, fresh salads and sandwiches made with traditional or rustic French breads, plus there are authentic seasonal desserts, gourmet yoghurts and ice creams that are also served all day long next to the Tuileries gardens.
Also, the Paul has basically the same menu as that of the Comptoir du Louvre, which is located under the pyramid at the Louvre museum and as of 2020, the sandwiches at the Paul Kiosk range in cost from €5 upwards, which could be Pavot chicken, a sesame camembert cheese, a ham and cheese or a tomato and mozzarella sandwich, to name a few you could enjoy.
There are also a variety of different breads available along with croissants, pastries like rhubarb tart, apple pie, an apple turnover or raspberry fritter and cakes such as a soft chocolate cake, chocolate macaroon or a macaroon with pistachio.
In addition to the snacks, yoghurts and ice creams, Kiosque Paul also supply a range of hot drinks like hot chocolate, coffee, different teas and herbal teas, along with cold soft drinks for something refreshing on a warm summers day.
However, if you want to enjoy something to eat while seated on a terrace within the Tuileries Gardens rather than a take-away option, then you could experience La Terasse de Pomone located by one of the ponds called an Exedra, which has a view to The Louvre as well.
Access to Kiosque Paul in Paris
Yet as we mentioned earlier, located by the Louvre museum within the Jardin des Tuileries, or Tuileries Gardens, in the 1st Arrondissement of Paris, which has lots of mature trees for well needed shade where you can sit on one of the free green chairs that are put out, you will find the Kiosque Paul reasonably close to one of the entrances to the Tuileries.
In fact, it is situated in the Carrousel Garden close to the Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel, as previously stated, but also by the courtyard called the Cour Napoleon, so the Kiosque Paul has a unique view of the Louvre Museum and of the I M Pei Pyramid main entrance.
The Paul Kiosk is open every day, and from April through to the end of June it opens at 10am, closing at 8pm. Throughout July and August it is open from 10am through to 8:30pm, whereas from September to the end of February it is open from 10:30am to 5:30pm.
You will find that the Jardin des Tuileries also opens and closes at different times during the year, closing far earlier in the winter months, so hence this snack kiosk follows in line with this, even though it open later than when the gardens first open of a morning, but being in the Carrousel garden area, Paul still opens later than the Tuileries garden itself.
Now when it comes to getting to the Tuileries Gardens, which is managed by The Louvre, and the Paul Kiosk via public transport in Paris, you will find that the Metro Station called the Concorde stop serves lines 1, 8 and 12, which is by the western entrance at the Place de la Concorde.
Alternatively, the Palais Royal - Musee du Louvre stop serving lines 1 and 7, the Louvre - Rivoli stop and the Tuileries stop, both serving line 1 will also get you within walking distance, as will the Batobus, which is the water bus that travels up and down the River Seine.
In addition to these options, the Paris bus lines 21, 27, 38, 39, 42, 45, 58, 67, 68, 69, 70, 72, 73, 74, 76, 84, 85, 87, 94 and 95 along with the Noctilien Night Bus Service, via lines N01, N11, N12, N13, N15, N16, N21 and N24 will also get you nearby to these and numerous other tourist attractions in this area of Paris including the impressive restaurant called Cafe Marly by the Richelieu passage of The Louvre.
