“Back for brunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2013

We had the occasion to be back in Boston on a Sunday and couldn't pass up the opportunity to have brunch at the Paramount, Beacon Hill before late church around the corner. We both succumbed to the spinach, blue cheese and bacon omelet, oh boy. We were seated along the line up to the ordering station, watched the world go by, the short order chefs dash about in orderly chaos, and cheerfully encouraged everyone that it was indeed worth the wait. The brunch was tasty, even the decaf coffee was super and the entertainment.....priceless. This is a must do if you are in Boston on a Sunday!!! See our dinner review "Early dinner".

“Incredibly delicious food!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013 via mobile

Came here for brunch - had to wait outside the restaurant for an hour and a half- but it was worth it! You order your food at the counter and pay and once you get your food your seated. Their options for breakfast were amazing. Would definitely come back to this place-
And I will say it again - the wait is worth it! :)

“My best brunch in USA”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013

This is literally the best brunch that I had since I'm here in USA. Everything is cooked in front of you. Fresh food. Nice staff. A little bit small, but everybody will have his sit.
Amazing.

“Very long wait, but worth it!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

As other reviewers have mentioned, you will wait. We went at "peak time" (10.30 on a Sunday), and we waited for about an hour before we were up to order. The wait is all part of the experience though, and is completely worth it once you get to sit down with your food.

I went for the chocolate-chip pancakes, with a side of fresh fruit. The pancakes were deliciously light and fluffy, with plenty of chocolate chips. They were not stingy with the fruit, either. I asked for just strawberries and blueberries and was given a whole pile up bowl of them.

Highly recommended, but only if you've got a morning free - definitely not those looking for a quick breakfast!
