Breakfast to Die For

We stopped in for a highly recommended breakfast before a golf game ..... the basic breakfast came with huge portions of everything that could be offered, and the special Baggins plate was also top notch .... Top it off with some of the best bloody mary's in town, and you can't miss here!

Excellent food can’t quite make up for lousy customer service. Crested Butte has a total of 3 maybe 4 places where you can get a decent breakfast, and consequently they can and do apparently thumb their noses at customer service. We visited the Paradise this past Sunday, arriving at 10 AM. We fully expected a long wait, but were told... More

We love to stop at the Paradise Cafe for breakfast. Some of the pictures on the site are of the old location -- it's new place right across from the performing arts center is wonderful. Seating is limited when the patio isn't open but they move tables fast. There is a wide variety of breakfast options from basics to creative... More

We had a bit of a wait on a Sunday morning but that met we could put our name on the list and breeze over to the Sunday market . Generous portions on the egg dishes with delicious homefries that melted in your mouth..all at a reasonable price and courteous service. Highly recommend!

My favorite breakfast place in CB. Located in small shop across from Center for the Arts. Has nice little outdoor patio also. Delicious large breakfasts at reasonable prices. Good service. Love their eggs benedict. Ate there twice last week.

Very good food. Busy so service can be slow. We had a mix of breakfast items and sandwiches. Friendly service.

This is a great place for a delicious breakfast and friendly service. The pancakes and French toast are the best we've eaten. I especially like the Virginia and the Maui pancakes. However, be prepared for a long wait. Try to go off hours or plan to enjoy your wait in town. They do not take reservations. So arrive early and... More

One of the best breakfasts we've ever had. My wife ordered french toast that she's still talking about a week later. I had the eggs benedict w/smoked salmon and was equally pleased. Great staff and warm atmosphere made for an incredible start to our day.

Had a family breakfast here one morning. Really good food and service. I would like to go back and have lunch or dinner. The French toast was very good, fresh fruit bowls, real maple syrup and friendly service!
