We love this place. They have Gluten Free pancakes that are very good. Great french toast, good biscuts and gravy. The place is small so get there early or be preared to wait. It is worth the wait. They are great folks that are running this. They stay on top of all their customers and work hard.

Breakfast here was really good. The eggs were cooked perfect, the hashbrowns were perfect and that's not always the case in a lot of restaurants. The service was friendly and quick.

Burgers great, salad just ok -- so much dressing the lettuce was soggy. Needed more cheese or something. Outside patio is a great place to people watch.

you can run, but you can't hide;; The Paradise has moved around downtown CB 3 times in the last 3 yrs. From 3rd and Elk they moved to the Old Croatian Hotel last year. When we drove into town last week we learned that they had moved to the old East End Bistro building and we found them. This is... More

We visited the day the US Pro Cycling Challenge rolled through town, so the long wait that other reviewers mentioned was even longer for us. The staff acknowledged the issue and stated that a lack of kitchen staff was the problem. When we finally did get seated, the food was slow to come out, but the waitstaff was friendly and... More

Crested Butte at the height of the flower season is not to be missed. Sights you will remember forever. We stopped at The Paradise Cafe after a long day of hiking and rain. We were hungry for hot food and had read good reviews of this spot. Glad we did I had the Huevos Rancheros, cooked in it's own pan,... More

We've eaten here many times at the old location up Elk Avenue and we ate here twice on our recent trip. There is always a wait and service is hit or miss, but the food is really good. If you come to CB you have to pack your patience. Most servers are college age kids and their priorities don't include... More

Very popular breakfast with good variety of choices. My pancakes were great and my husband had eggs benedict which was recommended by a local who eats there daily!

This is the third reiteration of this long-standing breakfast hangout, now under new management. Regrettably the kitchen was short-handed and the owner's solution was to not seat customers so the kitchen would not 'back up'. The waitstaff was advised by this reviewer that customer relations might be enhanced by at least seating and serving water to the dozen waiting patrons... More

Waited ten minutes for sloth like hostess to acknowledge a long line of customers. She sat a few couples out of order and left other couples ahead on her list still waiting including us. After an additional ten minutes we noticed a dozen tables were vacant both inside and outside but the hostess simply disappeared. When she returned, paying no... More
