Delicious and inexspensive breakfast,in a streamliner diner, the only draw back it was very cold inside and out. They need to work on their heating system!

Friendly staff, reasonable prices, great and efficient service, and fantastic food. What more can you ask for? I did a take-out order for my family and me. When I sat down to eat, were my taste buds extremely pleased! My daughter described her food as one of the best breakfast meals she's ever eaten. The hash browns were to die... More

It's a classic diner, old silver like building. It's got a fun local flare and the food is well prepared. The Banana Bread French Toast is my personal favorite. The coffee is like upscale diner coffee, a bit better than most diners. Service is always on and Kelly behind the counter is happy, attentive and on the money with fresh... More

We recently tried this diner on a Monday morning in December just before Christmas and were pleased with our choice. We sat in a booth among the locals and felt right at home. The waitresses were all friendly and the service was excellent. I ordered oatmeal and a very delicious pumpkin muffin. My companion ordered a full breakfast and thought... More

We've stopped here before and were delighted that off season the place was still open on weekends. It was busy but we got seats right away and the waitresses are friendly and chatty. Typical diner menu, the diner itself is pure American and is limited on seating whereas some have built extensions on to seat extra people, this is one... More

We travel a bit and have always loved Diners. We'll try anyone, anywhere. When in the White Mountains however there is NEVER a better choice than the Sunny Day. It just sits there hidden away near Clark's Trading Post on US-3 waiting for more customers to stop by (open just Friday-Sunday in the "off" season). You'd do yourself a HUGE... More

This is a typical "old-school" diner... in fact, the menu has a story of the building and it came from the diner manufacturing company in NJ that makes all of the rail-car looking diners. This also means that there are roughly 6 booths and bar-style seating.... so be prepared for a wait- but it's worth it! The diner is cash... More

I knew I wanted to try this place the second I saw it. The old-school, classic diner from the 50's. I ordered breakfast food, as you should at a place like this. Coffee, good. Eggs, perfectly cooked over medium. Corned-beef hash, very tasty. I wish I ate breakfast here every day of our trip.
