20 Years of Sugar Bliss at Paradise Donuts and Deli
After an awful lunch with my two little kids, and my kids being so good about not being wasteful by eating all their food, I treated them to a donut at the neighboring donut shop. We walked across the parking lot to Paradise Donuts and Deli where we were immediately greeted by the owners.
We looked at the donut case that was partially bare (although it was pushing 3ish). While the kids were taking their time debating about what sweet treat they were going to order from the glass case, I noticed a family that was having sandwiches inside the shop. The sandwiches were packed with tons of meat and cheese, and not the kind of deli sandwich I would have expected to see being served in a donut shop.
The owner must have heard me saw “wow” when she was walking out with the sandwiches to various guests dining in the deli and proceeded to tell me how they have been in business for 20 years! For 20 years, this small family-owned business has been serving donuts and sandwiches to the Mission Viejo community. I quickly learned why they have five stars on Yelp while talking to the owners who were so proud and passionate about their business. I immediately fell in love with this special little Orange County gem.
Later when we got home and sat down to eat our donuts, the kids squealed with excitement when they noticed that they had tossed in a couple of extra donuts for them. The donuts were sweet, fresh and created a captivating aroma in my kitchen.
I cannot wait to return to Paradise Donuts and Deli to sink my taste buds into one of the fresh deli sandwiches. When looking for a place to treat the kids to donuts, help support an amazing local family-owned business by taking them to Paradise Donuts and Deli.
