Friendly staff, great food, careful of hours and days open. Great alternative to waiting in line at larger places. Prices very reasonable.

This diner is great! Out of the way so look for it! We've been in summer and winter and loved it each time. Don't miss out on this little gem.

Okay, Clearly, great place for breakfast. The place is always hopping. You may have to wait but, you won't be disappointed. I sure wished we had this place back home to go to.

We sat down quickly and we were able to order quickly. My egg white omelet was delicious and fluffy and my son had a blueberry pancake that was chock full of berries. The one big downside was no real maple syrup! As one other reviewer stated, it is fake syrup mixed with real - yuck! It would be nice to... More

Haven't been here in a while but nothing has changed. The place is just perfect. Not tons of room, but true to its diner heritage. The atmosphere is nice because they don't spend time or money making it look nostalgic. It is on its own. Staff are as down to earth as you can get and take good care of... More

Traditional diner atmosphere in stainless steel diner facade with traditional red booths and bar stools. The food was ok but not exceptional. The coffee was dark and rich. Only open on weekends in late September. Good stop for a quick breakfast in a 1958 diner.

Went to Clark's Trading Post, got my hand stamped then walked over to the Sunny Day Diner for lunch. My family of 8 had 1/2 lunch, 1/2 breakfast - (Turkey Sandwich, Chocolate Chip Pancakes, Rueben) both are served from open to close. Food was awesome & so was the service. Extra bonus....we even had the pleasure of meeting the hard... More

Disgusting greasy food!!!!!! And found a long hair in the plastic flowers on the table :P YUCK I got the french toast and it was dry. They use watered down maple syrup and mix it with fake syrup and real syrup and it was crap. You could see the actual oil in the hash browns which where just so gross.... More

my young son loves to go there to sit in the booth near the hummingbird feeder! It's just outside of the window and in summer you can have breakfast and watch the hummingbirds!...very cool! I like it as the food is good, love banana bread french toast, and the service is always spot on! It can get a bit crowded... More
