Of the two Diners in area Paradise was recommended by hotel staff. As with most Diner's menu is extensive. Service was a little slow and refills on coffee were difficult to get. The meals overall were very good. Large portions. Pastries were excellent.

Mary Anne was excellent. She kept checking in on us with coffee, water, etc. My husband had an omelet with a side of sausage and hash browns. The hashbrowns were more like fried mash potato's. I ordered fruit and a croissant. The fruit seemed fresh as the melon's were ripe and tasty. A good choice for breakfast.

Went for breakfast and it was typical Greek diner quality. We both had there two egg breakfast with bacon and potatoes which comes with a small juice,coffee, and toast. While it was OK there was nothing special about it. Service was average.

Went for brunch over the Labor Day weekend with a large family group. Service was outstanding. We went back the next day because they could handle a large (sometimes difficult) group and did so with a smile. It's a diner - you have multiple choices. Breakfasts were very good. Chicken sandwich Italian style wasn't so hot, but I don;t know... More

The wait staff, spoke broken English, but was very efficient. They offer a wide variety of food and breakfast all day. I felt that it was expensive. 2 eggs,hash,toast, and ice tea for $16.95. I never went back only because of the prices.

We were tired after a long drive and some drama involved with the trip, so diner food (translate comfort food) seemed ideal, and it was less than a mile from our hotel. The green salad was amazingly fresh. My friend ordered the salisbury steak, which was enough for three meals, and she stated was delicious, especially with the wonderful caramelized... More
