Paradise Bakery and Cafe

This little coffee shop and bakery is a chain, and it's cute. We went to the one at the Desert Ridge Marketplace. It's located in the center food court, just north of the water fountains with all of the little kids in bathing suits. We were having a meeting and ended up staying for about four hours. No one bothered us and because it is walk up service we didn't feel as if we were occupying a table for too long. The line for service was long and then short in intervals, but was never so long that it looked impossible. I had a latte, which was average and not hot enough. I tried the quiche muffins, which is the egg et al stuffing without that yummy crust. It's baked in a muffin tin, so it's fairly solid and quick to eat.

If you look this chain up on line, you can find them in several of the malls around the Phoenix area.

Oh, someone at the table did have the best looking mocha drink with a dark chocolate syrup.

This is a convenient place for a group to meet as no one monitors how long you occupy a table and people can eat and drink as little or as much as needed.
