We had a lovely breakfast here, and are already planning our next visit. Service was friendly and efficient, which we appreciated given some time constraints. Great food, too.

We had breakfast on our last day in Boston, highly recommended by friends that visited several months ago. I’m a breakfast buff and have high expectations, found this restaurant to be very mediocre. I ordered my omelette and cook added items I did not ask...More

We were advised by our concierge at our hotel to try this restaurant. You begin by placing your order at the counter first. A small cozy place to eat, but large in flavor. We both had breakfast. I was impressed that they offered turkey bacon,...More

I was recommended by my son who visited earlier this year. I went for breakfast early on a wet Tuesday morning. There was little business going on in the tiny dining area. Service was prompt and friendly. The food was a little underwhelming. That wasn't...More

Beacon Hill
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
