Acme Hospitality broke its silence about Paradise Cafe, where major work has been going on for a while now.
After 37 years, the Paradise Cafe is closing its doors for good. It enjoyed a long and well-deserved run as a neighborhood watering hole, a place for celebrations, date night headquarters, and as the best patio in downtown. It’s no wonder that the community fell in love with this iconic corner of Anacapa and Ortega. We are grateful to you, Santa Barbara, for your support over the years.
As difficult as change may be—especially in 2020—history is in the remaking. Stay tuned for an exciting new concept coming soon.
I understand that the restaurant has had a place in people’s hearts for a long time, but the possibility of it becoming a really good restaurant—along the lines, say, of The Lark or Loquita—is pretty exciting. Here’s hoping the new concept goes well beyond comfort food.
