Went to breakfast at their new location today. 1 poor girl working the whole place herself and a full house. Never got seated so we sat ourselves after asking her if ok. After 10 minutes of nothing she finally starts taking orders from 2 other tables who came in long after us! Finally took our order. Wife asks her to place our order before table of 4 who just sat down and gave their order. 30 minutes later their order arrives (before ours!). After 40 minutes our order finally arrives. Wife ordered omlette with sour cream & salsa. She gets scrambled eggs with no sour cream. Some tired looking salsa in a jar is offered. I ordered corned beef hash with 2 eggs on top. We were famished so I didn't even notice till after eating I never got the eggs!!! 2 guys were cooking in the back doing 1 plate at a time and they still couldn't get it right! Owner not in sight. Paying the bill I was gonna mention the missing eggs to them but they had left! Nobody back there. Told the waitress. She didn't even offer to take it off the bill. We left her a $3 tip on about a $20 tab but should have left nothing but wife felt sorry for her. She should have shut the place down and called the owner to come in and help or something. Another table of 2 got up and left after 20 minutes of no service. Others got up to get their own syrup, etc. Lots of negative comments from even locals. I am a local but this was my last trip to Paradise Cafe. If the owner wants to do this he needs to be there and show they care!

this cafe is well located at the corner of elk st and 3rd av. It has great, hearty breakfasts but there is usually a waiting line to get in. Nice little outdoor area also for good weather. Great blueberry pancakes. very filling. recommended.

Paradise Cafe is definitely the best breakfast in Crested Butte. You have to wait usually on busy days, but it is worth it! The typical breakfast meals (eggs, toast, bacon, etc) are good, but the house specialty skillet dishes are definitely the way to go! All the house specialties are absolutely delicious! We went here a few different days and tried different ones and they were all amazing. The pancakes are really good too, especially the fresh peach pancakes! The servers are all super friendly and its also really cheap! If you want a unique breakfast experience in Crested Butte this is the place to go.

Everything is great. Love this place for breakfast. It's always worth the wait for a table.
