Have to say, being a local who doesn't go out for breakfast regularly, brought summer guests here - could not explain how each plate was so fresh and HOT! Loved service and food

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
