"Lovely place to sit in the sun or warm up in the winter. The fire is a real asset. Fantastic coffee and wonderful slices. Eccels cake is a winner for me. Service is very good and staff are always happy to help.

"We stopped in over the Easter weekend, the sun was shining, they have obviously spent a lot of money improving their gorgeous gardens and there was a band playing. It was sublime. I forgot just how great Cafe Paradiso is. The seafood pie was sublime and my husband raved about the creamy mushrooms, he said they were the best he has ever had. We won't leave it as long before our next visit to Paradiso.

"Cafe Paradiso is just so relaxing. I love being able to sit out in the beautifully landscaped gardens. I had their awesome carrot cake today - its honestly the best I have ever eaten, I was tempted to take a piece home!

"Yet another fantastic lunch at Cafe Paradiso! Now I'm hooked on the Salmon pies instead of the totally delicious bacon and egg pie! Great coffee too.

"The salmon eggs benny is so the best and we regularly travel from the Mount to Paradiso for it. It is the chunk of hot seared smoked salmon ( most places use shaved cold salmon) on baby cress on lightly toast slabs of bread with eggs that are always just so runny right and hollandaise topped, not drowned. The plate comes out so hot that we are warned not to touch it. Many restaurants serve a hot breakfast on a cold plate !! 

The best salmon eggs benny in Australiasia. 

Coffee and service is always great.
