This wonderful relic of old Katoomba has one of the best Art Deco interiors in Australia, and is a great place for an old fashioned lunch or afternoon tea. Don't leave without checking out the stunning "mirror room", full of 1920s memorabilia.
Very few places in Katoomba have hung on to their history as tightly as the Paragon. This is a real reminder of the olden days, and apart from a few staff changes, nothing much has changed here since it opened in 1916.
Most people grab a table in one of the cosy booths just inside. But before you choose a spot, take a tour through to the back to see the beautiful mirror room. And don't leave without trying some of the Paragon chocolates - hand made right here in the cafe by a master chocolatier.
Open: Tuesday to Sunday 10 am – 4 pm
Address: 65 Katoomba St, Katoomba
