Paradiso came highly recommended to us around the island, but it was always so full of hipster backpackers that we avoided it quite frequently. Looking back now, I wish we would have gone sooner.
After a LOOOOOOONG day of sun and snorkeling around Turneffe Atoll, we were famished. You know that point? Where you are so hungry, NOTHING sounds good. After walking from Cafe Paradise (the yellow place opposite end of town from the split) to the split, we finally stopped at Paradiso. The service was a little slow, but the kid was super friendly as was the owner (who was handing out flyers for her other venture, the outdoor cinema).
The sandwiches were fricking amazing! Huge, delicious, meat loaded goodies. I got the smoked turkey and Ham and the lady ordered the smoked turkey. It was the perfect thing to fill our bellies after a long day. I had a fruit smoothie to drink which was quite tasty and the lady had some iced coffee, which I equally enjoyed.
We tried breakfast the next day and although it was good, the kid waiting was being run ragged by too many seats and broke hipsters wanting to chill for the free wifi.
I would definitely go back for lunch, but there are better places, away from the hostels, for breakfast.
