Lovely lunch of home-made sweet potato quiche in wholemeal pastry served with 4 salads of choice. Light, airy, clean restaurant & a garden area. Staff are cheerful, helpful & efficient. However, the down side is that there is only one toilet for the whole restaurant and there was a queue of people encroaching into the restaurant. Such a shame, otherwise... More

My Dad and I visited for lunch. The food looked nice and fresh and lots of salad choice. We both had the quiches which was goats cheese and artichoke. It was really great sized portions. Super filling tasty lunch. Would visit again!!

Friendly staff but the interior of the cafe is fairly soulless. Some of the vegetarian dishes looked good. We had the cheese scone - a bit doughy, and the bread pudding which was a very generous portion but very dry and heavy.

Friendly, helpful staff and a good choice of food. I chose the stuffed courgettes which contained nuts and cheese, among other things. The lady behind the counter asked if I would like a little of all of the salad dishes, which I did! About twelve in all! Not a cheap lunch but absolutely scrummy!

We dropped our daughter at Uni and wanted a quick snack. Stumbled in to Cafe Paradiso tempted by the lovely cakes in the window. What a lucky find! Fresh quiche and 4 salads followed by fruit scone and a huge pot of tea later, 2 very satisfied customers 😋lovely friendly staff too . Will definitely be back to sample more.... More

We haven't been to Chichester for a while and panicked when we got to the arcade it used to be in and it wasn't there - fortunately it is over the road in bigger premises (still with only one loo though!) The cakes are always fantastic and the scones are huge and they will always offer to warm them for... More

They present delicious looking sweet pastries in the window with interesting flavours such as pistachio and chocolate etc. - do not be fooled, these are disgusting, they tasted stale and generic and have a sticky, odd consistency. The cafe is done out like an Old People's Home dining room and, like most of Chichester, the clientele reflects this and is... More

This café was top of the list for vegan cafés, so we popped in for an early lunch. We had vegan chilli with wedges, coffee and tea. It was absolutely fab. The staff were friendly, helpful and chatty, lovely girls. I'm shocked at the reviews on here as I did NOT have a bad experience and it is quite popular... More

I love the idea of this cafe but the reality doesn't live up to the name. I visited once to pick up a sausage roll to take away but this time I met with friends for lunch. Both times the canteen style service was a little chaotic and slow. On both times there was a queue and this caused congestion... More
