About the Products
Paradise Donuts of Linthicum is an independent bakery featuring the full product lineup of this Midwest favorite. The Paradise recipe was crafted in a small town in Missouri back in the 1930’s and now we bring this taste of the past to our community. Early each morning, Colin and the bakery team will make donuts, fritters, cinnamon rolls, sausage rolls, and kolache by hand in the Paradise Donuts tradition. Come in early to get the freshest selection!
You may have noticed something new in our lineup. Growing up in Houston, Texas, Kolache was a treat Colin’s family found in nearly every bakery in town. This traditional pastry has its origins in the Czech Republic, but variations can be found in Poland, Russia, and other parts of Central and Eastern Europe. At Paradise, we bake both sweet and savory variations each and every morning. Come in and try one (or three) this Fall!
Melissa grew up in a small town in Western Pennsylvania. When we first started dating, we made a trip out to a frozen custard stand near Conneaut Lake Amusement Park. Colin had never had custard before and figured it would be like the soft-serve you get at many chain shops. He couldn’t have been more wrong. Ever since that day, Colin and Melissa have dreamed of bringing traditional frozen custard to our community.
With the help of dairy cows from nearby Lancaster, Pennsylvania and our custom-built custard machine, the custard is produced daily using a rapid-chilling process. This quick freeze results in the smallest possible ice crystals and the smoothest dairy dessert you have ever tried. And if that’s not enough, the quick chill means less stirring, creating a dense, buttery texture. Once chilled, the custard is collected in our unique freezer and hand-dipped for cones and sundaes. We know your custard craving is year-round, so come in and try our silky vanilla, decadent chocolate, or surprising flavor of the day. There’s always a reason to go to Paradise!
When our family thinks Paradise, we think first of our local community. That’s why we have partnered with Zeke’s Coffee to bring you unique varieties and blends from this Baltimore roaster. With more than 40 varieties of beans from every corner of the globe, our good friends at Zeke’s will even be creating a custom South Pacific Paradise Blend just for our shop! In addition to our Paradise blend, we will feature a unique coffee each month to take you away to Paradise.
