Paragon: "Atmosphere and Food" Top 5 Page for this destination Blue Mountains National Park Restaurant Tip by iandsmith

  Dim lighting adds to the atmosphere
by iandsmith

Like so many of the restaurants in Katoomba's main street, the Paragon has atmosphere, which may explain why 1 in 3 shops in the main street is a restaurant. It's amazing to think that so many can survive but, survive they do.
The dull lighting and classical motifs on the wall, like large cameos make this a place to relax and chill out. I loved it.
In fact Paragon Café's art deco interior is listed on the National Trust.
(Open Tues–Sun 10am to 4pm)

Favorite Dish: Since I only had the big breakfast I really am not in a position to comment but I thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast and the thick slices of bread that came with it.
