As you may have guessed, we like to encourage supporting our local businesses. We have our monthly meetings at local restaurants to support our communities. One of my favorites (and on our list for monthly meeting places) is Paradise Diner. It's located on rte 17 in Fredericksburg and well worth the trip!
When you walk in the door you are immediately greeted by a dessert case that is rivaled by no other in the area. Seriously! There they all are for you to drool over while you decide which you are going to try. There are around 17 available daily to choose from It's sinful!! Believe it or not, that's not the best part of visiting this restaurant. You'll receive outstanding customer service and food that is out of this world. I've been several times and ordered something different each visit and everytime the meal has been consistently delightful.
From the street the place looks tiny. This is deceptive as it is a rather sizeable place and very comfortable. You may come in a stranger but you will leave as part of the family. Not uncommon is to receive hugs on your way out! Do you dine alone? If so, you'll love it here. In addition to the tables, they have a counter that you can sit at (think old school diner).
So, please do support your local businesses and share with your friends and family those that you love. They can always use the business and chances are great that they provide that extra something you won't be finding in a chain store or restaurant.
