So happy we stopped here! It is so cute inside and the service was excellent. We were seated right away and our food came very fast. The banana French toast is delicious by the way!

We stopped here for breakfast on our 1st morning in Lincoln & decided right then that we would be going back the next day. The coffee is great. The meal was delicious. And the blueberry pancakes were heaven! Great service. Would most definitely go back when in the area.

The Sunny Day Diner is a quaint little old-fashioned diner that serves up hot coffee and a great,quick breakfast! It's just down the road from the Clark's Trading Post (no comment) and if you're looking for a good, quick breakfast with no fuss then Sunny Day Diner is the place! Has a great community vibe, like stepping back in time... More

The breakfast was delicious and the diner ambience was so retro. We loved it and will be having breakfast there again when we return.

This is a small diner that probably has not changed since it opened a typical diner car with a counter and a few booths and a menu that you would expect for a breakfast diner The staff was very friendly and the coffee was great a good breakfast stop and a good place to find out what is happening locally

We had lunch here after visiting Franconia Notch. The food was fine. The server that we had wasn't friendly. There was another server and she was great. Some of the seating booths were very tight. It needs a bit of adjustment to even out the spacing.
