Paramount Coffee Project DTLA
The DTLA location of Paramount Coffee Project doesn’t hit you over the head with unnecessary themes or handsome surfer-waiters who will call you mate five times too many. Like the first one on Fairfax, PCP is an excellent cafe, on par with the daytime spots you’d find in Sydney and Melbourne. The space in DTLA’s Row is huge, with big windows that open up onto the street, and a surprisingly big mid-week lunch crowd considering that the development is still half-empty. The entirely new menu is a good mix of breakfast-y stuff like coconut oats and sweet or savory dutch babies, and lunch options like a tea leaf salad, a classic Australian sausage roll (that’s ground meat wrapped in puff pastry), and uni toast. But whatever time of day you’re here, make room for the breakfast sandwich with curried egg salad and house-cured ham. And obviously a flat white.
