On the outskirts of a small town “Where the Past meets the Future” is the best kept secret for wholesome delicious down home cooking! Find a cozy little table inside, belly up to the bar or enjoy the fresh air and sunshine at The Paradise Cafe!
Hands down the Prime Rib French Dip is unsurpassed to any other you will find anywhere. Some folks have driven hundreds of miles just for the sandwiches and burgers alone. Not to mention the homemade soup will put Grandma to shame! The chef Neel Joshi takes pride in his selection of first class cuisine and uses seasonally fresh produce for the year round menu.
The Paradise Café has a relaxed atmosphere and the wait staff treats you just like family. Nestled in between Temecula and Palm Springs at the end of Hwy 371 its easy to just pull off and enjoy a cold beer, live music on weekends and satisfy your taste buds with “Love” from the kitchen.
Hop on your bike, put the top down on the convertible or hike to the Paradise Café today! We cant wait to try everything on the menu!

Paradise Valley Cafe was established in 1939 by a lady famously known as " Pistol Annie". She got the name by carrying 2 six shooters on each hip. Situated close to 5000 feet above sea level a mile from the Pacific crest trail at the junction of 2 scenic highways Ca 74 and Ca 371. Its a 30 minute drive to Palm Desert or a 45 minute drive to the Temecula wine country.

Over the years the place has gone through several owners, which resulted in a few name changes. For example Backwoods inn, Paradise Corner cafe.

In 2010 Neel Joshi took over the restaurant and returned it to its original name " Paradise Valley Cafe". Neel has always been involved in food mainly because of his background. Father is from India and his mother from Genoa, Italy. After graduation he went to work for Sysco, Los Angeles. After 10 years with the company as a Marketing Manager, decided to give up the corporate structure and start his own. He has had a couple of successful restaurants before Paradise, namely Molly's in San Bernardino and Holy Cow in Los Angeles. He takes pride in the fact that all food is homemade often coming from long established family recipes. Most popular are homemade chili, chicken curry, penne pasta Split pea soup and for desert Tiramisu.
