Nice and quiet in the morning to begin your day, with heaving breakfast and reading the latest newspapers.

Each staff member of the Paradox has their own kind of music. So sometimes you can hear good ol’fashion radio, or classic music. And also hiphop, rock, pop, reggae, even cumba. But never to loud so that you can’t hear yourself think anymore.
Our main goal is that we will provide you with a good service, giving sincere information, providing a cosy and homey feeling and that you’ll leave us with a smile.
