Stopped by for quick breakfast before a long day of sightseeing. The granola with fruit was very good. The Sausage & Egg Sandwich wasn't as good as hoped, however, that is personal preference as we don't care for the English sausage texture. Many choice, including a traditional English breakfast and quick and friendly service. A few outdoor tables to enjoy... More

We came here for a chilled Sunday brunch, after my boyfriend gave it rave reviews after coming here frequently about a year ago. It's a cute little place but sadly we were let down by a few things. The eggs in the eggs Benedict were overdone and the sauce had split (but Boyf noted it was still better than most!)... More

Absolutely disgusting, old bacon, tasted like death - perhaps they can do decent other food, but they said they could do a bacon sandwich, and clearly hadn't replaced their bacon with anything even close to fresh, I had one bite and had to spit it straight out, avoid avoid avoid. The coffee I ordered, whilst I'm at it was badly... More

Surrounded by a lot of universities, cafe paradiso stands as the perfect place to have a coffee and relax.

Staff is very friendly and the music is soft and easy... More

I've read the comments and we were heading straight to the coffee but we were very disappointed. The cafeteria is run by a bunch of girls as it was a school cantine. They barely listen to you and they don't tell you what they have or not from the meals board. Such a great location, such a poor breakfast.

We had an amazing breakfast this morning at Paradiso. Orange juice and smoothy, flat white and hot chocolate with a full English Breakfast and eggs on toast. Lovely service and freshly prepared breakfast. Very nice

Selvi and her team serve the warmest of smiles and truly wonderful customer service in this quaint, authentic Sicilian Caffe. With amazing coffees (my favorite -- iced latte; the best in town!), tasty food and super comfy seating, this treasure is a must-visit whether your in town on holiday or a local. Warning, it may become habit forming!

As a new mum surviving sleepless nights by virtue of coffee and cake, a visit to caffe paradiso is a very high on my list of daily to-dos. The croissants are yummy and the baby cannolo are irresistible, which combined with a strong flat white will often set me up for the day; worth a visit!
