It's no secret that I love brunch. It's borderline lunch time but you get to have your breakfast fix. Nothing cheers me up quite like it, I must admit. Paramount Coffee Project has been all the rage lately. I see people posting picture after picture of it on Instagram. The place is immaculate.So obviously, I just HAD to check it out.
Routine calls me to start off with a long black. This was undeniably a good cup.
This is a soft shell crab po boy! YES, I had it for breakfast. But no, I didn't finish the entire lot, I did however split it with my friend. I have a soft spot for soft shell crab. It's just dang tasty without the hassle of trying to yank things out of their shells. The batter was crunchy, there was coleslaw in there which I'm never really a fan of. It could've used something with kick, dibs on SRIRACHA! Came with some chips and pickles. The chips were waaay too salty. After one or two, you won't be keen for another, sadly.
Waffle with bacon, avo, salsa, and peppers! This was a hefty serving. It was okay, just okay. Nothing too special about it I must say, no surprise whatsoever. The batter wasn't airy or crunchy, it was just a dense piece of dough.
Well, this is where the action is at, the coffee counter. All the filter brews that are ordered are brewed at the counter. They've got a wide range of coffee for people to try. And the people that make these somewhat seem like scientists. There's precision in what they do to a certain degree. Such an art.
I'd say that Paramount Coffee Project is a place where you'd head for a nice cup of joe especially if you're keen to sample a couple of different brews. However, when it comes to food, I'm not entirely sure if I'd actually go back.
