This Cafe has a great art deco atmosphere and the staff were friendly. Service was on the slow side as it is a popular eating place for locals. The food, when it came, was good.

Reaching Goulburn at 8pm on the Thursday night before Easter weekend, Paragon cafe came up as a wonderful place to eat. It was very busy and wait staff continuously ignored us at the door. We were finally seated and menu provided, it took another long wait for our orders to be taken. The wait was even longer for our food... More

Ordered a toasted sandwich, take away. Waited for 15 mins then after we enquired about the wait, was told 'oh they went on a break and forgot to tell anyone about your order!

Enjoyed a deluxe burger for lunch while traveling to Braidwood. This burger had the lot and was as good as any I can remember. The inclusive chips and salad was also well above average. The cappuccino here is pretty good also. Service is friendly in an old world style decor. A paragon of burger making possibly.

We had a charming breakfast in the booth at the back. Tasty and reliable food and good service with a friendly team in a vintage atmosphere.

Dinner for two at this cafe on a night when dining options in Goulburn seemed to be very limited. One tender fillet steak with vegetables. One edible steak sandwich. Two glasses of good red, one cold beer. Two large slices of slightly stale cake ordered from display counter filled with calorie-rich cakes (one served with a large scoop of ice-cream).... More

Overpriced and not worth the money. The crepes are bland with minimal filling. The salad wrap came out with an added surprise of pineapple (not on the menu) - lucky I don't have an allergy! Took a while to receive service and then the food. Staff forgot to bring the water and the bill ended up about $150 for 3... More

Large, efficient restaurant. Service excellent and varied menu. One problem is trying to read the menu. For older people or anyone who needs glasses, it is near impossible to see what is on it. This was a talking point with our group of eight, who all decided to ask the waiter for recommendations instead. By having legible menus would make... More

Great retro style cafe (as you'd expect with a name like theat). Food and coffe was good. It was abit busy when we came in and had to wait 20mins for service, but food was delivered quickly.
