Had a great breakfast of pancakes and a gluten free choice. Service was very good and the meal was delicious. Coffee and tea was refreshed without asking. Prices are reasonable. Not a huge place and maybe a wait. But I will be back.

We are visiting friends that live in CB and they took us here for breakfast. The staff are very friendly and attentive, your coffee cup never goes empty. My breakfast with eggs, chorizo sausage and French toast was excellent, hot and fresh. My wife's egg scramble with green chiles and cheese on fried red potato pieces was even better. Prices... More

Ate lunch here in July 2015. Were seated on the patio. I had the club sandwich -- excellent! Loaded with meat, tomatoes, etc. Service was excellent. Great place for lunch in CB!

Wow! The Huevos Rancheros I had was simply amazing! Arguably the best I've ever had and I'm originally from Texas (so I've had a ton). My wife enjoyed her french toast as well. The service was great and some of the most reasonable pricing we found while in CB. Probably the best breakfast/brunch joint in CB so don't miss out!... More

I have been eating at the Paradise Cafe for over twenty years. The high quality of food has been consistent. Their "skillets", pancakes and Eggs Benidict are fantastic.

What a great place! Awkward waiting space, but awesome food. They personalized my Bloody Mary, were quick with service and food. One had huevos rancheros, one had migas, and both were generous and wonderful. Would have a hard time deciding whether to repeat this morning's order or try something new on another visit.

This was a very pleasant experience. Sometimes I have better luck with skipping social media reviews and asking locals where they eat. Sometimes the answers match, sometimes not. This time they did. Every single item we shared was excellent, but the cinnamon roll was special. Instead of the usual sickening sweet icing drizzle, these were heavier on the spice and... More

This place is great. As such, the wait can be crazy, we heard 1 1/2 hours for people who came in behind us. It's got a nice patio, but it was rainy when we went, so it was closed. Smallish, but with big portions and great choices of benedicts! I highly recommend this as the go to breakfast spot.
