Find: Paramount is Downtown Mash-Up of Favorite Treats

Paramount, downtown's "urban gathering place"

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.
