Love it. Glad Panera's has taken over it. Delicious cookies, salads and ice tea. Healthy salad choices. I love bagels and breads.

Restaurant sold out to Panera so the once fantastic Paradise with its delectable cookies, salads and sandwiches has been taken over by this food chain. Tables now all small, and I find myself no longer inclined to regularly frequent because I miss the old place. My husband's group still goes for breakfast every Monday morning even though they have to... More

Disappointed to say the least in many ways. The place is renovated with many new electronic features for ordering and picking up. Had a coffee and a gigantic cinnamon bun probably about 500 calories. Icing was too sweet for my liking and the bun was lacking moisture. With all the money spent on the renovation they failed to create a... More

Usually stop there once a week. I really like the turkey chile but many times tables have not been bused and it becomes difficult to find a place to sit. Last time they were out of the large cups. I do like the kiosk for ordering.

We drop in the Paradise Bakery for lunch about every ten days or so. The sandwiches and soup are yummy. Service is prompt, coffee is good and we always indulge with a little treat for desert.

First of all this is no longer called Paridise Bakery.. It is now owned by Panera Bread. That change was not an improvement from my perspective... I would not go backl

BUT, their booths are extremely uncomfortable! I broke my back several years ago, and while I am very blessed I can walk, I do have a lot of pain. The lack of cushioning in the booths has resulted in hubby and I crossing off this place from our list of good places to eat.

Attentive counter staff; good selection of food; longer than expected wait for a smoothie. Turkey chili is always good at Paradise but this could have been hotter in temperature.

Sad news but happy for family. This great sandwich, bakery, gathering place is changing hands soon. Notice says keeping the fresh cookie you get with your meal. Here's to an easy transition. And keeping great food at reasonable prices.
