Paramount Coffee Project

Editor's Review

Don't be confused by the nickname of this stylish multi-roaster; You won't find any drugs at this Fairfax café except for caffeine, sugar, and salt—all the good things in life. Paramount Coffee Project is the first expansion effort of Mark Dundon and Jin Ngs' Surry Hills spot in Australia. Their Fairfax café sits in an eclectic mix of Jewish-owned businesses and designer boutiques. 

Supreme and its never ending line of brand loyalists are just across the street. Step inside to this trendy blend of oak wood, exposed beams and cement walls, plants hanging from the ceilings to mellow out the industrial vibes. PCP has recently taken to more of a table service approach since its 2015 opening to accompany the extensive dine-in menu. For a takeaway option, the café has an ordering window just outside their patio, and inside, the intoxicating smells of the kitchen waft into the café.

Expect hearty brunch servings from a menu with fresh ingredients like saffron couscous and several tartines. As for the "drugs," your drink selection includes a myriad of espresso-milk beverages, rotating pour-overs, and specialty drinks like spicy mango limeade and rose and basil lemonade. Bakers Kneaded sweetens the deal with sugar from drool-worthy carrot cafés, a kouign amann, and several croissants.
