Lunch Options at Paradise Bakery
I stepped into Paradise Bakery not knowing that they have locations in 14 states with 5 in Utah (2 more opening up later this fall). While I may be a bit out of it, to me it felt just as unique and warm as if it were a single location started up by locals.
I know it's a generalization but it's often common with chain restaurants that they easily loose their charm or unique feel, not to mention a decline in the quality and uniqueness of food. That doesn't seem to be the case with the Sugarhouse location.
After being nearly overwhelmed with the options I choose a turkey sandwich made on their whole wheat bread. My friend Bill who is a vegetarian had the tomato bisque with a very appetizing salad. Both our meals were delicious and hearty. Enjoying a new lunch location with great food and a good friend...it doesn't get much better.
Aside from the enormous menu and the delectable bakery options, if you're looking for a place to get some work done each of their locations offer free Wireless Internet. On top of that I believe that the sign inside isn't just marketing fluff:
"Since 1976 - Using the finest ingredients, our products are prepared and baked fresh on the premises. Enjoy the taste of Paradise."
