My husband and I were running an errand in Old Scottsdale and decided to stop at Paradise Bakery. We had our lunch on the patio. It was a very nice lunch. This is not gourmet food, but it is above average for the price and very pleasant. As part of the package, I could choose a pastry, so chose the... More

Paradise Bakery has been one of my go to's for years. I was a little concerned with the change to Panera Bread Company. Although menu items are not quite the same, the food is still tasty and satisfying. They have eliminated fruit salad from their menu which disappoints me, but all in all, it continues to be a good place... More

Our favorite spot for a croissant breakfast sandwich. The one we visited was in the Fashion Square Mall so there was lots of shopping also and some restaurants.

My young son and I stopped in here for lunch. He was thrilled with his plain ham sandwich and cookie. I enjoyed my half turkey BLT on sourdough plus half Thai salad. I didn't need the cookie, tho, but it was awfully tasty.

Even though Paradise is now owned by Panera it's still better. Food is fresher and you can have input into exactly how you want it made. More choices too. Service is better also.

I had a Southwest Chicken Salad, the small version, and it was fresh and delicious. My companions had sandwiches too and were impressed by the fresh ingredients and lucious flavors. Cookies are always good to top off the meal. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone!!

They make a salad for you while you watch. Everything is good here and staff is nice. Several locations, one in airport. Sandwiches are wonderful. I had some Mac and cheese and it was not really to my liking... But I am quite picky. The noodles were fine, but the sauce was too runny and not enough cheese.

I was happy to see that the Southwest Caesars Salad was still on the menu as this is my favorite lunch item. I am hoping that the integration with Panera will allow some menu items from Paradise to be adopted by Panera nationwide.

A good place to run in and grab a quick bite, lots of variety. Only one thing...husband had the cinnamon bun but it had regular icing on it instead of cream cheese icing which made it really too sweet for our tastes.

I have eaten lunch or dinner at the Old Town Scottsdale branch of Paradise Bakery about four times. My food has always been very good. On my most recent visit, I had half an Asian Sesame Chicken salad, and half a Chicken Walnut sandwich. Both were very good. One of my friends ordered the soup/sandwich meal, and the other ordered...
