Not good

Ugh I don't know why this is voted and great. Went today and ordered two eggs sunny side up, bacon, toast and potatoes. The one egg was over cooked so it wasn't sunny and the other one was a little better. Potatoes were tasteless and bacon was paper thin. They don't even bring you your coffee! Will... read more

Ok Sunshine Diner has the potential to be outstanding! Location is fabulous, historical value for residents who remember the property way back when, size and space. The food is home cooked and ok, the service is a bit slow but I don't fault the staff - time perhaps to modernize the kitchen. If it were mine the kitchen would go... More

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.

First time out to sunshine diner. Was mot impressed , service was fine, food below average. I had somthing like a breakfast poutin amd the onions in ot were so overcooked they were just black specks; yet the potato home fries were still cold (obvious they were pre cooked) ill stick with the cabin or porters fpr my breakfast fix.

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
