THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Lynn's Paradise Cafe Restaurant Review

: Paula Dean may have scaled back her dishes, but proprietor Lynn Winter has not. You'll still be served more biscuits and sausage gravy at breakfast, fried catfish at lunch, or meatloaf at dinner than most mortals can finish in a single sitting. The over-the-top surroundings match the exuberance of the portions, with outsized table lamps, Formica in colors found nowhere in nature, and plenty of plastic toys per table to entertain diners between courses. Breakfast favorites, in addition to a raft of giant omelets, include french toast made with cinnamon swirl bread and multigrain pancakes the approximate size of hubcaps. Walnut-crusted fried chicken, a half-pound hamburger, black bean chili, and a BLT featuring fried green tomatoes anchor both the lunch and dinner menus. In the unlikely event that you actually have room for dessert, drink it. The ambrosial combination of bourbon and chocolate is on display in the Derby Pie milk shake.
