Message from the Business

Your inner child is bound to come out at this kooky restaurant that serves sophisticated food in a playful setting.
Lynn Winter's little slice of paradise has become a national attraction and local treasure. As unique and quirky as Lynn herself, Lynn's Paradise Cafe offers the tastiest down-home cooking, the wackiest decor and genuine southern hospitality. Our fun and family-friendly atmosphere, the World of Swirl gift shop and our central Louisville/Highlands location has made Lynn's Paradise Cafe a popular destination for anyone out for lunch or on vacation. The Paradise has received extensive local and national media attention, including features on television programs such as ?Throwdown! With Bobby Flay,? the Oprah Winfrey Show, the Food Network's "Best Of", "Throwdown! with Bobby Flay," the Discovery Channel's "Christopher Lowell Show," and CBS Evening News' "Travels with Harry", as well as numerous print articles in newspapers and magazines.
