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.

Great breakfast & friendly attentive service in active downtown area. Western omelet and Huervos Rancheros were pleasing to the eye and just as tasty. Thanks!

Love joining my family at the Paramount Diner in Manasquan whenever I am visiting the east coast. Perfect spot for coffee & breakfast with the whole family. Servers are always friendly and great with the young kids. Definitely a great local spot!

Went here for breakfast, 9/28/15 (lunch in August 2015, and once back in the 1990's...), and was totally appeased. It's not a very big diner, but for the amount of people allowed in at one time, you do not feel clustered. However, the bathrooms are...More

Really enjoyed our breakfast! Our waitress was friendly and helpful, as was the entire staff. I love the idea that you can order just one blueberry pancake along with one slice of pecan walnut French toast, so you don't have to choose. Highly recommend giving...More
