“Must go.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2012

A regular stop. I find the service is always friendly and food of good serve. Won't leave hungry.
Worth the stop and value for money.

“Part of Australian history”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2012

Aside from the irrestible tourist attraction of the Big Merinho, it is worth pulling off the Hume Highway to sample the delights of the Paragon Cafe. This traditional diner first opened its doors in 1940, and although it has moved a few doors up the street, I suspect it is largely unchanged in 72 years. The environment is clean and bright. Service is friendly and efficient. The food is a combination of Italian pizzas and pastas and traditional cafe food.... bacon and egg sandwiches and pies baked next door. The cafe seems to be deeply rooted in the local community offering lunch time specials for pensioners. A great place to take a break from the long drive from Sydney to Canberra.

“Reliable, quick and tasty”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2012

If you are looking for a reliable tasty meal with quick service, the Paragon Cafe is the place to go in Goulburn. I had the quiche and my friend the fish. Both delish. The young Asian waiter with his eager to please smile was a delight. Hope to see him there again the next time we visit!

“A goulburn icon”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2012

Had lunch there with a great big group of friends (adults and kids) and it was good. Service was friendly and efficient, and the food was yummy! It was also well priced, and the kids liked eating in the old fashioned booths.
