Café Paradiso

The Café Paradiso website advises that this Café was inspired by the film Cinema Paradiso and that the Café was a pioneer in providing al fresco dining on King William Road. Cinema Paridiso is one of the most famous Italian films. It is a beautiful film about love, nostalgia and pursuit of life goals. These are eminently suitable characteristics for a café to attempt to invoke.

The hot chocolate cost $4.20 and comes in a generous ceramic cup with white and pink marshmallows. It comes with a tasty brown froth and a sprinkle of chocolate. The drink was rich and dark but did not evoke any particularly chocolaty flavours. However, it was comforting to see the white and pink marshmallow again which your reviewer last encountered at Swiss Glory and the Black Wattle Café.
