“Great soups, sandwiches & the best cookies!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013

Always have to make a stop at this place when I'm in town. My daughter had us go there 3 times for lunch during the week we were in town.
The cookies are like homemade! The bites are great to take with for later. The chocolate-chip oatmeal raising ones are so wonderful.
The soups and sandwiches are so delicious. My 13 year old daughter got the mac-n-cheese each time. I tasted it and know why. It was the best!
Lots of refillable soda & ice tea choices.

“another Panera Bread”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2013

Very similar to Panera Bread. Fresh, tasty, self serve. Nice assortment of baked goods, also similar to Panera Bread Co. The big difference is Paradise gives you a cookie 'free' with combination meals.

“SOUP!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

I am a soup person. I wish there were more restaurants like this that served several different types of soups instead of just 1 or two. I have not eaten their sandwiches, so I can't rave about those - but they did look very good.

“wasn't looking for this but glad I stopped”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2013

We were just leaving the movie and getting ready to catch the bus when we walked by the bakery. They had the most delicious looking goodies on display. We settled on the blueberry crumble and the banana nut muffin. The blueberry was moist with a great crumble topping. The banana nut was loaded with nuts as well as a very banana filling but not a mushy mix.Our only regret is that we didn't taste the product before we left. We would have gotten a few for later.
