This is exactly what I want in a coffee house/sandwich shop - fair trade/equal exchange coffee which is delicious and a great selection of sandwiches, bagels, soups, & pastries. The menu has both standard and unique offerings, and it's really, really good. The atmosphere is quirky and cozy. The staff is, um, well...the service could use a little improvement, it's inconsistent, ranging from friendly to efficient to slow to not so great. But even that adds to the charm of this not being the standard robo-starbucks joint. The tables are small are few, but I still love this place, it's an offbeat local gem.

Apparently there was another change in staff because this place is almost as rude as you can get. Every time I go in, I get ignored because the girls are too busy dancing or touching eachother or being silly. Its kind of like this business is a hobby for them and I am interrupting their fun time. They usually don't interact with me beyond "yea" and "6.50". In addition, the service is slow and food a little pricey. Today I went in, was ignored then instead of being rung up, had to listen to my server make fun of a customer for asking for "nut butter" Her, along with other workers lously made fun of the customer and made dirty sexual references. They seem so slow, so ignorant and immature, I won't be giving them business in the future.

Pros: Huge selection of food, good location, some seating

Cons: Rude, immature staff, a little pricey

The coffee is really good at this place and because it's right across the street from Starbucks, there's barely ever a line. And unlike Starbuck's, the baked goods are really good here, especially the muffins. Also, they sell fresh squeezed juices including orange and sometimes grapefruit.

Paradise has apparently had a change in staff beacause my service was excellent, I got a smoothie and it was great, protein makes shakes airy so I stayed away from it and opted for a banana, peach and mango, excellent. I also got a sandwich, they've got all these great new breads, I had smoked turkey and brie on an onion focaccia, sooo tasty. Service was great!!!!! Great soups too!!!!!
