the Paradise Cafe has the best breakfast in town. I am a local and this is the only place that I will eat breakfast in Crested Butte.

Unless you hate breakfast, you'll love the Paradise. It has wonderful selections from wonderful cooks, presented by some wonderful people. Paradise is a CB consensus favorite for a reason. Don't miss it.

Excellent brunch menu, good value, lovely staff and setting -- the coffee, however, is absolutely awful!

We have been here several times for breakfast and the food and service have been good. So we decided to try out lunch time. No surprise - my patty melted was tasty and my wife's Reuben was just tasty. We both had the soup of the day, which was turkey and bacon and was excellent. Prices are quite moderate.

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.
