“Like a Panera, satisfying lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

Looking for a quick, healthier lunch in the area and found it here. While they do offer delicious baked treats, I got the Classic Chicken Salad. The salad was simple and just what I wanted. Service though left a sour taste in my mouth. They all just seemed careless and moved slow... and there was no customers besides my family and I there to serve. But I'd return. It's better than the Fast Food options around and the menu is big enough to satisfy everyone

“Good place for sandwiches, soup, and salad”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2014

Just like a Panera Bread as ownership is the same. ome staff even wearing Panera hats.
Line almost out the door with snow-birds. Inefficient way of taking sandwich orders on paper. Management may want to consider electronic entry for this to save time and a step.
Good food as always.

“Banquet room rental”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013

The banquet room usage was a great place for us to use as a groom's luncheon opportunity for the two families to get to know one another. The room fits approximately 50 guests and is free to reserve. We had 70 to 80 quests which stretched their resources but tried very hard to meet our needs. The staff worked hard to plan for our event and was very flexible when we needed to make adjustments to our order. I suggest customers bring table clothes and decorations to customize your room.

“Love to eat here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2013

We are from the Midwest where we visit Panera Bakery. We're so glad to see that Panera and Paradise have joined and can visit 'Panera' out here also. We especially enjoy the bagels: the cranberry walnut and the cinnamon crunch. Nothing more relaxing that hitting Paradise about 8:00 for bagels and coffee while we read the news on our I Pads. The service is fast and pleasant, the food is delicious the coffee is always hot, the happy chatter of everyone else there just adds to the atmosphere. But then, we also enjoy a lunch or dinner of a salad and soup. Perfect way to end the day.

“a great quick lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013

We stopped in for a quick lunch after visiting around town. My wife and I each had a salad - one blue cheese and one Greek - very fresh, tasty and large portions!
Our friends had soups - one tomato and one cauliflower - very hot and they both loved them. It was a well lit, friendly place. It is buffet style and the line moved quickly. Lots of choices if you're there for lunch!
