Choose your time wisely to eat here it gets very busy and waiting can take some times but it's a great experience and the food is well priced and tasty.

The food all around is excellent. Loved the breakfast toasts. Be aware of standing in line in a crowded space. If you follow their process, the wait is worth it.

My wife, daughter, and I had a fabulous breakfast here on Sunday. It was out first visit and we will definitely keep this place in mind for future visits. The interior is small but they handle it by having customers place their orders before sitting....More

Perfect for brunch, lunch or even a romantic dinner, the Paramount can get crowded but it is well worth the wait. The food is reasonably priced and always fresh and creative so go there.

We went for Breakfast. You order your food at the counter, then sit down. The food comes very quick, and the taste was excellent. Great coffee!! Would definitely go back.

My husband got in line to order. I sat down as I was experiencing terrible bout of planter's fasciatis. I was told I couldn't sit down even though I tried to explain to man mumbling at me w/thick foreign accent that I needed to rest...More

This place was highly recommended to us. There is always a long wait line. This usually means good food. After standing in line for 40 minutes, and being pushed and having my toes stepped on (very small place), we got our food and was lucky...More

We stuck it out after seeing the queue, thinking this must be the place to be! I have to say the breakfast was very nice and I'm glad we ait at this place, but I wouldn't repeat the hour queuing again for the food.

Lots of people even at 8am on Sunday. So i was naive thinking "This is it!" Rather unhygienic place. Chef cook, old lady is very cheap for even potatoes. I was stunned and puzzled seeing just few lonely potatoes on a plate. On top ot...More

The food was average at best. The atmosphere was horrible. We had to wait in line for over an hour. Once we were seated we had to eat with other people brushing up against us and leaning on our table. Fenway Park wasn't as crowded...More

Visit this historic and ritzy Boston neighborhood to
soak up its classic New England charm as you stroll
down cobblestoned, gas-lamp lined streets. Bring your
walking shoes, camera, and select a nice day to wander
through the hilly neighborhood and check out its
exclusive addresses. Louisburg Square, Mt. Vernon
street, Chestnut street and the extremely narrow and
widely photographed Acorn street make a nice walking

The Paramount has a very tried and true process. You essentially stand in line, order your meal, and by the time your food is prepared you have a seat.

It depends on the time of day. If you go around 11 am on Sunday then it should take about an 60-70 mins from start to finish. The food is ready very quickly - around 5 minutes, but its the waiting time which takes the most... More
