Had the big breakfast, Great tasting, good portion except for the toast... very small piece. Self serve coffee which means don't have to wait for a refill, that's a plus as for decor plain and simple is the name of the game, will be back.

If you don't mind a greasy breakfast and a diner that has not been cleaned for 20 years this might work. Ordered the Really Big Breakfast and it was tasty but for $10 could have been better. My only complaint is that the place is dirty! The air exchanger vent by the cash is black and looks like it has... More

We stopped at the Sunshine Diner whilst staying in Fredericton for the harvest jazz and blues festival and had a fantastic breakfast. We were a large group of 12 and the staff dealt really well with feeding us all. I had the french toast which was delicious and my friend had the pancakes which were also deemed 'amazing'. I thought... More

This was our first time at the diner while visiting friends in Freddy. A large food selection, and my wife LOVED the home-made pies. Some may say that the decor is somewhat plain, but this is what makes the place! Very homey, with an extremely friendly staff. My only 'gripe' is the cost of the hot dog. I am a... More

Ok really, I go in and I'm home! Well better than home; I never got sweet strawberry pancakes at home - just regular ones. The Sweet Strawberry pancakes are new I and I love them. Great addition to the menu Giselle! And I also love that the regulars get up and serve coffee. It's a self serve system coffee system,... More

As others have said, maybe too much was expected by me. When traveling, I try to support small, local establishments before the big chains. Great old photos of the neighborhood on the walls. Food was average, as well as portion sizes. Self-serve coffee is novel. Service was good.

Maybe was expecting too much based on some of the reviews but I found this to a be a very ordinary place with average food quality. Coffee is self service and very weak. Reasonable value for money but nothing special
