We were excited about trying a new bagel place. Bradenton has a serious lack of quality bagels and this left us disappointed. They seemed to have quite a few customers. However, we waited 15 minutes for 2 bagels to be toasted... Much to our dismay they were not even warm when our name was finally called. The spinach garlic cream... More

The bagels are fresh and delicious; the "eggal" sandwich is terrific (and quite large). My husband said that the coffee was the best he had all week while we were on vacation. The people were so friendly and quick to please. I do not understand the negative reviews at all. Give this a try, you will not be disappointed.

Everytime I have eaten here I have only gotten the bagels. They are by far the best bagels you can get on the island and the homemade cream cheeses are delicious!!! I have never actually sat down and eaten here but they make everything right there exactly how you like it which is hard to find!

I have been coming to paradise cafe for years. I think their "eggals" are amazing and maybe it does take a few minutes to make....this is no McD's! The staff has always been so friendly to me and my daughter. Bagels have never been stale, always fresh. They are very large and I always have to take the other half... More

Went there this morning and the bagels were dry stale bread . Nothing about them resembled a bagel except the shape. She said they are delivered fresh every morning and i don't believe that. The muffins were good. Bagels at Publix next door are even a hundred times better. Do not waste your money on these over priced dried gross... More

Had bagels from Paradise this morning. Not what we are used to. We're from the Northeast, near NYC, so maybe NY style bagels are different than FL bagels? These bagels were dry and the outside was chewy. They seemed like bread in the shape of a bagel. They didn't seem fresh, and they were purchased at 7am. The coffee was... More

Not the place to go if you want good coffee(coffee weak) and fast service. It took them 30 minutes for 3 bagels with cream cheese. NEVER AGAIN! They were so unorganized and understaffed it was terrible. The cashier was in the middle of a transaction..and another gal asked her about how to make coffee, she turned away from the customer...

Walked into this place with a friend-neither of us knew anything about it or what to expect. I didn't read reviews and I didn't have anyone recommend it to me. We walked down the entire strip of buildings and looked at this place last and were immediately sold just by reading the menu posted on the window. We were greeted... More

The "Eggle" sandwiches are on perfectly cooked bagels (ask for tomato!) and the blueberry pancakes are excellent. Your eyes will tell you that you need a giant muffin, so be sure to get it grilled with butter. We return almost every day we are on vacation in the area and are always made to feel welcome to the island by... More
