We mostly have breakfast here so there's not much to say. Had lunch there once or twice but the grandkids really like their pancakes and sausage!!

New owners so what do I expect? Wonderful owner, place is painted fresh. Service excellent and the food as good or better than ever. Try the southwest mess, you will love it.

Our three under six grandchildren develop a huge lunch appetite after a morning at a nearby swim school. The Paramount diner is one of their favorite choices for lunch. Excellent food, service and large portions.

After a good bike ride, the paramount Diner is a great place to stop and refuel. Always a friendly waitress serving breakfast or lunch. Good size portions at a very fair price. We have never been disappointed.

We are regulars here and the reason is the food and service. Cindy is a great waitress and super friendly on top of it. Had and recommend the southwest mess. Has everything you could want and cooked to perfection. The Mediterranean omlet a great one....More

At first it didn’t look open, but I’m glad I took a second look and found it is. Was quickly greeted and served coffee right away. Looks like a lot of friendly regulars. Mostly booths and counter seats. Good breakfast menu with omelets, eggs, pancakes,...More

We love the Paramount. The omelets are great. They also make great salads and wraps. It's cute and quaint inside. Friendly owner and staff.

Open only for breakfast and lunch until 3pm. The servers and other staff are very friendly. The American food is good and the prices are reasonable. If you are on vacation at the Jersey Shore this is a great place to eat.
