The NEW Paradise Cafe had just been opened 6 weeks when we went in for breakfast. The owner is new and food is great. The Gluten Free Blueberry pancakes were outstanding. So good, that we have breakfast there the next morning. The new owner and staff are great. They will do very well.

Had the house hamburger with french fries, cole slaw and a side Tortilla soup, to go. The staff was very friendly and the service was good, but the food was a disappointment. Perhaps the "to go" option may not be a good idea? Not sure. The burger meat was a bit dry and the buns were too big and flat.... More

This is our go to breakfast spot in CB. Service can be a bit spotty but the food is great. In season the peach pancakes are the best.

This place serves typical fast ski food; burgers and buffalo chili and the like. Service was quick and there was always a place to sit. The views are good and the people friendly.

Great breakfast and lunch place at affordable prices. The restaurant is very cozy housed in one of the oldest buildings in Crested Butte. When the weather is nice there is an awesome outdoor patio right next to the creek. The staff is friendly and attentive.

the Paradise Cafe moved from it's cramped quarters at Elk and 3rd st up to the Old Croatian Hotel at Elk land 5th. More space and more atmosphere alongside the rushing Cold Creek. Same great breakfasts as before. Great value. Good service.

Every table was full, but only 1/3 had food on them. Finally someone asked us what we wanted to drink. We placed our drink... More
