Paragon Cafe, Katoomba - Zachariah Simos

Original Paragon Cafe, 1921.

Early history

Zachariah Simos came to Australia from Greece as a young, orphaned boy. It is said that he got employment selling fish in Kings Cross, and in 1916 he came to Katoomba and leased the property on which the Paragon now stands.

An existing Devonshire tea room was taken over and transformed into a Viennese cafe, modelled on a similar establishment which the late Mr. Simos saw while holidaying in Austria.
