Paul's Place has many 'blends' – coffee blends, tea blends, smoothie blends – but the most important blend we offer is a cultural blend!

On any given day in Paul's Place you might chance upon a Canadian-English-Turkish blend, or a Norwegian-American-Irish blend, or an Iranian-German-Swedish blend. You never know whom you'll meet and chat with at Paul's Place, and that's one of the most exciting aspects of visiting this café on the ground floor of the St. Paul Cultural Center.

Paul's Place also houses a library of approximately 2500 books, and loans are made free of charge.

Fine picture books keep visitors engrossed for hours, and guide books help tourists plan out their time in Turkey.

The Paul's Place gift shop offers a wide array of unique souvenirs and gift items, including jewelry, pottery, handcrafted lace, T-shirts, postcards, and much more! To preview some of these items, click here.
