The Paramount Coffee Project

I’ve been eagerly awaiting the re-opening of the Paramount Complex which now features the Golden Age Cinema (I’ve been to see a movie, it’s amazing) and now The Paramount Coffee Project, a cafe with great coffee and mouth-watering food.

I’ve since been twice to The Paramount Coffee Project, and I look forward to returning again and again to work my way through the menu!

I started off my first visit with a cold filter coffee – this is my new favourite way to drink coffee, especially with the weather heating up. It was smooth and refreshing and definitely didn’t need any sugar or milk added. Don’t ruin it.

I am hopelessly obsessed with peppermint tea and the idea of mint and lavender together sounds like a match made in heaven!

The pan fried brioche was rich and decadent, with crispy edges and a heavenly sweet topping. A delicious sweet breakfast but the sweet waffle takes the crown.

This sweet waffle is arguably their most popular dish and boy does it live up to the hype! I have ordered it twice but beware, share. I could not for the life of me finish it.

The sweet waffle’s brother gives a savoury twist with a fried egg, bacon and mexican toppings.

The fried chicken was deliciously spiced, crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. I loved the ‘slaw it came with but to be honest I wasn’t mad on the creole relish. I would love if there was the option to put this into burger form = heaven.

Despite being spoilt with choice for brunch options in Surry Hills, I think The Paramount Coffee Project is definitely one of my favs. And yes, it’s worth queueing for!

What’s your favourite place to go to brunch at the moment?
