Reviewed July 14, 2013 via mobile

6 dollars for a plain egg bagel and a half a banana, they couldn't even give us a full banana. The eggs looked like they came from the frozen aisle section at walmart also

“Amazing breakfast and service!”
Reviewed July 8, 2013 via mobile

We stumbled upon this place by accident ! We had set out on a mission to find a dunkin donuts and couldn't find one anywhere. We decided to stop by here on our way back to our hotel. We are so glad we did. We were greeted by the nicest lady ever. She made us feel at home and told us all about her awesome menu. The coffee, egg bagel sandwiches and treats were out of this world. It was so good we brought our riends back on our last day. You don't see a lot of places like this anymore that are quaint and charming. We can't wait to go back! We only wish we had found it sooner on our trip!!

“An Episode Seinfeld Missed!”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

If Jerry Seinfeld met the character that runs the cash register at the “Paradise Cafe,” Jerry would have to write another Seinfeld episode. Order a cheese omelet and listen to the guy sigh as he rolls his eyes at the ceiling and taps his writing utensil while he ticks off the four or five cheese choices. If you decide (as I did) not to exhaust him and order a “plain” omelet, get ready to hear the whole roster of options you’re declining. “What? No onions? No mushrooms? Green peppers?” etc. All this is delivered deadpan. No one, by the way, said “Welcome” or “Hello.” Where to place your order is a mystery not divulged (hint: Place your order at the cash register but don’t pay until after you eat. Isn’t that obvious, you dumb tourist?) Now, having placed your order, take a seat and wait until you’re sure you’ve been forgotten for your muffin, which is sitting in the muffin tin on top of the counter. Eventually the muffin and omelet will arrive. The omelet is tasty though not fluffy and accompanied by sliced fresh fruit. For the flat plain omelet, toast, the muffin, one coffee and a refill, you will pay $13.10. You can say “Thank you” because the guy at the cash register won’t. Well, he didn’t. Not at the “Paradise Cafe.”

“Service was stressed ?”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

Attentive staff, food was good and fresh, good ideas with the coffee cups and mugs but, the server was super stressed and you didn't want to interupt her. I thought this was a laid back island ?!

“Delicious!!!”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

We were looking for a place to have breakfast and ended up at Paradise bagels and cafe, as soon as you walk in you can tell this place takes pride in customer service. It is a small place but the warmth and atmosphere said it all, we were very friendly greatly and sad down to one of the best food I had all day. I highly recommend this place for a meal.
