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!

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!

My friend and I visited for brunch before an afternoon wedding. The address listed is old, it has actually moved to 6th. So after some wondering around on Elk and speaking with a friendly stranger, we finally located the restaurant. I ordered huevos rancheros, which is a favorite of mine, and it disappointed. The green chili had large pieces of... More

We are here in the off season, went to Paradise for brunch - Wait Staff were very nice and helpful, knew their stuff, too. Huevos Rancheros for me and Biscuits and Gravy for my wife. Both were very very good! Could easily have shared either dish and been full. We will return!

One of my favorite eateries in Crested Butte. I have only been for breakfast but I do go everyday for breakfast! Everything is fantastic and it's a great place to meet the locals and get a fantastic meal!
