Meal Plans: A college-town cheat sheet to cheap eats

Libra Posted on August 24, 2011 in: Paramount Beacon Hill, Press, The Paramount

Jeez. In Beacon Hill, even the hangover joints are classier. You’ll hear nothing but raves from neighborhood folks about the Paramount, so it’s worth the walk across the Common from the Emerson and Suffolk campuses. Besides, the walk in the fresh air will be good for your hangover (just try to avoid contact with the detritus of weekend debauchery inevitably strewn about the park). The Paramount has been around since 1937, serving brunch cafeteria-style at some of the best prices you’ll find in Beacon Hill. (Note to freshmen: this is where fancy people live.) And the breakfast menu is available until 4:30 p.m., so there’s no rush to roll out of bed. But then again, it’s worth it for malted Belgian waffles, caramel-and-banana French toast, and fluffy omelets, like the one filled with blue cheese, bacon, and spinach.
