Not impressed

Ironic how a place with bagels in its name doesn't even make their own. This explains the wide variety of comments. Our experience was very mediocre. Several servers running around taking orders and no one was "cooking". Very chaotic. For all we could tell, the food may have come from Publix... read more

A cheery hello and a bright comfortable spot to sit can start the day out right. BB muffin was large, tasty, and was more of an old fashion style, not a lot of sugar in it. The bagels are not your typical NY style or Montreal type. They are softer like a bulky roll, but tasted like a bagel. They... More

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
