General Info
Located in a 1915 vintage brick and stucco building that once housed an Italian bakery, and La Paloma Cafe, this landmark building has been the home of Paradise Cafe since 1981. Customers can enjoy Paradise Cafe on the heated patio, in the dining room, or the art deco-inspired bar. The Paradise Cafe has the first and only grill to use Santa Maria live oak wood in the city of Santa Barbara. We specialize in prime steaks, fresh fish, and of course, our famous Paradise Burger broiled over the first and only live oak wood grill in Santa Barbara. Combine that with our fabulous vegetarian entrees, pastas, soups, salads, and our Decadent Paradise Pie, and we have something for every palate!

Consistantly good food

The Paradise Cafe has been a Santa Barbara fixture for one reason. Good food, reasonably priced with a menu that shows the owners know what they are doing.
Sunny Sunday, on the veranda at Paradise. While the wait staff and hostess are California Careless the back of the house rocks! The burger was flavorful, cooked to a proper medium (pink line center) with hot shoestring fries. And my companion's bacon stuffed waffles disappeared with gusto. Our entres were under $10 each so compared to most Santa Barbara restaurants the Paradise says good value.
Unfortunately the service was typical California Careless.; it's hard to find good help I know. But a little training can go a long way when added to having servers who smile naturally. Don't let that deter you from a good meal - there are lots and lots of worse places when it comes to service.

The food is OK, although some had to be sent back to reheat. The service set a new standard for terrible. Multiple apologies were followed by more forgotten requests; the food arrived at random over a period of nearly an hour. My advice: go somewhere that values its customers.

Yummy Salad

Their cobb salad is the best! Yummy and the patio is fun for a fairly large gathering.
