Jeez. In Beacon Hill, even the hangover joints are classier. You’ll hear nothing but raves from neighborhood folks about the Paramount, so it’s worth the walk across the Common from the Emerson and Suffolk campuses. Besides, the walk in the fresh air will be good for your hangover (just try to avoid contact with the detritus of weekend debauchery inevitably strewn about the park). The Paramount has been around since 1937, serving brunch cafeteria-style at some of the best prices you’ll find in Beacon Hill. (Note to freshmen: this is where fancy people live.) And the breakfast menu is available until 4:30 p.m., so there’s no rush to roll out of bed. But then again, it’s worth it for malted Belgian waffles, caramel-and-banana French toast, and fluffy omelets, like the one filled with blue cheese, bacon, and spinach.

My absolutely favorite restaurant in Beacon Hill. Whenever people visit from out of town I take them here…for dinner. I know people rave about the breakfast (hello banana pancakes), but I think the absolutely best meal is dinner … I think people (maybe me) actually dream about their steak tips and buttery green beans…or maybe the scallops and risotto (when on special)…or chicken marsala….or…..
The service is wonderful and food even better! I love that meals are always served hot and in a very comfortable atmosphere. Anywhere else in Boston and you would be paying twice as much for the fabulousness they are serving.
Be prepared for a line (because everyone else loves it here too)…but have a glass of wine or a beer and enjoy yourself…you’re not there to rush.

It’s September, and like every Autumn Boston swells with both local pride and new arrivals. Freshmen are settling in to their dorms and foliage fanatics are flooding the streets and soaking up our color and New England charm. For those of you not yet familiar with Beacon Hill or it’s favorite neighborhood restaurant, welcome. Let us introduce ourselves.
The Paramount has been a fixture in Boston’s historic Beacon Hill neighborhood since 1937. The comfortable atmosphere, combined with imaginative food and exceptional value, are what makes the paramount a cherished meeting spot for both locals and visitors. If you are known by the company you keep and often the line extending out on the sidewalk, then you could say that the Paramount is legendary.
Breakfast and lunch are served 7 days a week until 4:30 PM at our casual counter and then transforms to traditional wait service for evening diners. The Improper Bostonian listed the Paramount as their “Best Breakfast” and we garnered Boston Magazine’s Best of Boston 2009 award for “Best Neighborhood Restaurant.” In a city of infinite dining choices, Zagat Survey ranks the Paramount a high 23.
If you are looking to sample a taste of Boston you owe it to yourself to stop by the Paramount.
