Paradiso de Stelle

Paradiso de Stelle 10 Bastion Square, just off Wharf Street.
March 10, 2010
**** Illy
+++++ Kadalima's... since they are no more, I will have to check. 

There was a parking space on Wharf St., and this was on my list so I thought it was a good time to try this place.  It's a pleasant little bistro/restaurant, that serves small meals and snacks.  There are tables outside for nice days overlooking the harbour.  It wasn't a nice day, so I sat inside.  Everything was really attractively displayed, and their pastries looked super good.  They told me that they got them from Kadalimas.  Since it has since closed, i wonder where they are getting it from now.  i will have to return and find out.  The coffee was Illy, so therefore it was good.  Illy is Italian, and it seems like most of the patisserie/bistro/small coffee shops seem to prefer it.  On this rainy March day, it seems full of business types.  In the summer it is usually overflowing with tourists as well.

  1. Great little bistro. Good coffee. Cheerful staff, good service. Excellent sandwiches. Comfortable, great atmosphere, with colorful, well-done paintings hanging on walls. I hung out for an hour reading a book I bought at Munro's and drinking coffee. Good view of harbor. I sat inside because I liked the ambiance.
