Especially being such a small place, Crestline is lucky to have two great, independent coffee houses. Each one is good in its own way. The advantage of Paradise Mountain is that it has a larger variety of drinks, good for those that like their coffee fancy or to get more flavors. They know how to brew properly here so there's no burnt taste or inconsistency as is often found at some of the more famous chains. The place is very cozy -- kind of like a grandmother's old mountain house -- but it is also extremely small on the inside. There are a few tables out front where the tree-covered view to the south can be enjoyed along with the parade of life going back-and-forth on Lake Drive. One can also get a bite to eat here with a good sandwich.
One final thing in the hope that whoever approves this review at TripAdvisor will notice it. When this place was entered into the database, somebody accidentally listed it as an Albanian restaurant. It's just a coffee house so please change that so people will be able to find it under the correct category.
