Paradise Bakery & Cafe


This past week some the guys from work and I checked out the new Paradise Bakery & Cafe in American Fork. It came as a recommendation from one guy's wife. I had never heard of it so I had no expectations.

The place was packed. Everyone loves to try out the new place. Walking in the atmosphere was nice and there were tons of employees. They were either working in the food lines, handing out samples, or cleaning up. I ordered the Turkey Cranberry Sandwich. (Oven roasted turkey with cranberry sauce, mayo, lettuce and tomato served on our Paradise Molasses bread.)



It came with a chocolaty cookie and I added nice big soda. The sandwiches were pre-made. It was kind of nice because you got to see the actually sandwich before you made a decision but on the other hand if you ordered a less popular selection (Jason) then your bread was a little dried out. On the way to pay I got ushered to a separate line from my coworkers. I was just getting rung up when their computers hung. It took them a few moments to figure out what was going on. But soon I had paid and rejoined my coworkers only to find out that they got their meals free because the computer had hung. Apparently I should have staid in the other line. Oh well. I was only out around $10 for lunch. All said, I'm sure we'll be going back again. Check it out and let me know what you think.

I have eaten there before. The sandwiches are pretty good, but the soup is divine! My favorite is the fire roasted tomato! I don't even like tomato soup, but this is to die for! My favorite cookie is the coconut chocolate chip. Wish we had one here in Elko!

That sounds good. Maybe I'll go back sooner. :)

I was just telling someone that I wanted to check this place out. Thanks to this post I'm more determined than ever to make it happen. Thanks for the review :)

OH man, that looks good! Do you think it's as good as Great Harvest?

Great Harvest might have better bread but I think Paradise has better sandwiches. It looks like your closest option is in main. I'm not sure it's that good. :)
