The historic Paragon Restaurant has been home of exclusive hand-made confectionery since 1916, and continues to use only the finest ingredients in its products. Specialities include hand-dipped chocolate centres, French nougat, fudges, marzipan fruits, maple brazils, and many other tempting sweets.
The restaurant with cosy wood panelled booths is an ideal rendezvous for late breakfasts, morning and afternoon teas and lunches. Devonshire teas and crispy waffles are some of the specialities. The cocktail bar is one of the finest examples of Art Deco in Australia and along with the other rooms has been classified by the National Trust as being essential to Australia's Heritage.
A blast from the past! It's like you travelled back in time to the 1950's and they are celebrating there 100th year! I love the old school ambience here. They have these Greek statue pictures hanging and a explanation about it. The back seems to have a small seminar room Only tried the scones and ice coffee,both above average stuff but the scones was the most enjoyable of the two There is also chocolates and other knick knacks sold here
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!
