Love love love their croissants and muffins. Absolutely the best, the freshest, and they will even heat them up for you! Staff is great, but the food is greater!! This is a can't miss; don't let a long line keep you away.

this place is a mainstay for locals & visitors alike. they always hire the sweetest, friendliest kids, and the gelato & frozen yogurt is beyond comparison. oreo, dulche de leche, coconut... no matter what flavor you chose, you will not be disappointed- it's pricey for ice cream, but they are THE gig in town. others come & go (we have a ben & jerry's too) but paradise is truly that. their homemade lemonade in summer is worth waiting in the sometimes horrendous line~ 4th of july it wraps around the corner, but 4 or 5 people working at once moves the line along quickly. sometimes they will even have a stand out front just for lemonade. I LOVE THIS PLACE. ...and would frankly LOVE the recipe to their cookies & muffins: lemon poppy seed, blueberry (low-fat), chocolate, and my fave- banana choc. chip. they also have great coffee & smoothies. YUM. you an also order a HUGE decorated cookie- and you will never have a better one. during high season, it's open til midnight, which is awesome after you have some drinks ;) it's on the most trafficked corner in town, across from where you an pick up the horse & buggy ride, so parking is limited- best to walk. many benches out front & the best people watching in town. during the music festival, the students from the music school play their instruments out front. it's a no-brainer.

We stopped in for ice cream and were pleasantly surprised by the very high quality of the ice cream. Lots of choices are offered. The servers were completely uninterested in the customers and couldn't even muster smiles.
