Find: Paramount is Downtown Mash-Up of Favorite Treats
How many times have you wished there were somewhere else you could go when you’re in the city center for some purpose? Now there is a family-friendly spot just right for gathering after an afternoon recital at Alabama Theater or after hanging out at Railroad Park.
Paramount is a fresh, new shop on the corner of 2nd and 20th street that has the best of the good-mood foods: Frozen yogurt, gourmet coffee, cupcakes, and Belgian waffles. While the suburbs have been covered in fro-yo shops for awhile now, downtown can finally claim one of its own (12 flavors available).
Moms on playdates at McWane Science Center can stroll just a couple of blocks over to Paramount for yogurt. And the bankers downtown have a place for an off-site celebration (shower, birthday) that beats ordering cookies for the break room.
Urban dwellers, you have to be pleased to have a spot for hanging out that has free wi-fi and outdoor seating. And dog walkers, you should know that Paramount also sells Yoghund, a yogurt specially formulated for your dog. That’s a new one – but perhaps probiotics are especially helpful for digestion of shoes.
