    The decor is like a trip back in time. We only had hot chocolates and hot chips, which were both pretty good. The atmosphere was still wanting, with makeshift signage and some repairs very much needed.

    Sad to say I was not very happy with my experience at the Paragon. The decor makes up for it in some small part, it's like taking a trip back in time. But the lighting is slow low you can barely see what you are eating. I doubt I will give it another go.
  • Hair in the food. Cold food!

    No trip to the Blue Mountains is complete without a visit to the Paragon for delicious coffee and scrumptious desserts. The place has a wonderful old-fashioned look and feel and walking in the door is like stepping back in time. Very cosy and the perfect way to stay warm in winter.

    I love the Paragon. Such a gorgeous old establishment with all sorts of old world paraphernalia like ornate old cash registers, grammaphones, vintage black & white prints... The Paragon is always popular & serves up both 'old school' lunches, afternoon teas, and a range of chocolates. So, the devonshire tea! The tea is real leaf, though the pots could be bigger. The scones were a tad 'cakey', but the touch of cinnamon is good & unlike the other reviewer ours came complete with jam & cream with no prompting! Personally, I have had better, but the atmosphere is just so perfect for arvo tea, that I am willing to overlook minor details!
  • well... not a good experience yesterday. went there for afternoon tea yesterday with my girlfriend, sister and brother in law. my sister ordered 1 scone with coffee, i ordered 2 scones with a cup of tea, my brother in law ordered 2 scones and a coffee, and my girlfriend ordered banana bread. now my all the scones eventually arrived to the table and had jam and cream except for my sisters which was just a plate with a scone thrown down in front of her. when she asked for her jam and cream, a waiter went and just got cream. then took off without getting jam. eventually my sister asked for jam and a large container was dropped rudely on the table. all the while my girlfriend was still waiting for her banana bread which came out after we had all finished our scones.which were really dry. very disorganised with staff dropping and exploding glasses and plates everywhere without asking the customers at the table if they were ok. my sister also witnessed a staffer drop ice cream on the floor and put it back on the plate. poor form never again paragon..........................
