I had an amazing bagel sandwich and blueberry muffin. The coffee was great and very hot with up to 12 free refills. It was a nice morning so we sat outside and enjoyed our breakfast and took advantage of the free coffee refills.

David K from Maryland is an IDIOT. I've been going to Paradise Café for YEARS and NEVER ONCE have they microwaved a bagel of mine, nor have they for anyone else's I have seen. They have a toaster meant specifically for bagels and toast. WHY would they use a MICROWAVE?! Anyways... Onto the food: it is delicious and inexpensive. Arguably... More

This place has the best coffee on the island. The bagels are out of this world! Anything on the menu is fantastic - you can't go wrong! On Wednesday nights, there is an Italian dinner. It is completely worth it! Service is great and the owner (Jackie) is super friendly. It's hidden in a shopping center, but it's worth looking... More

With so many fabulous local places to eat we thought this would be another one. Very wrong. It's like stumbling into someone's house and they weren't expecting you. They actually microwaved the bagel!!!!! Pass this by. Peaches is right next door. And it is fabulous.

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
