Retro 1950's diner trailer with kitchen built on in the back. Really adorable inside...brings you back in time. Staff is so helpful and nice. Menu is normal breakfast foods. Good service. It's a diner, not a high end restaurant, but it's soo good!

Diners are by far the best breakfast places and Sunny Day stacks up. It's a small place, but cozy and friendly. My kids enjoyed Mickey Mouse pancakes, and we had eggs, homemade toast, bacon and home fries. I know we were hungry, but those home fries were pretty amazing and we sopped them all up. Great belly filler breakfast before... More

We had a great breakfast at the Sunny Day Diner the morning we left Lincoln - the eggs benedict was superb! Even though it was packed, the service never felt slow, and was always friendly. The classic American diner experience we'd been looking for!

Banana bread french toast? How do you see this on the menu and not order it? They easily accommodated my request for 2 instead of 3 slices, skip the actual banana and the special syrup. I added two over easy eggs for protein to balance out the Carb Heaven. The only thing I didn't completely love were the turkey sausages.... More

fabulous breakfast at the Sunny Day Diner. Parking lot looked full, but we were able to sit down at a table without any wait. Service was very prompt, pleasant, and checked on us often. Omlet and blueberry pancakes were delicious.

Went here for breakfast. Excellent food!!! There were a lot of cars out front, but we walked right in and got a table. It is a small place but with a big heart. Food came quickly and the server was very polite.They only take cash so be prepared for this. Clean & good food.......

The breakfast was good and the service was friendly. Service was fast but you did not feel rushed. This place was highly recommended to us and it lived up to the recommendation.

We went to worship and decided to eat at a restaurant that was closed so wound up at the Diner. The staff was extremely friendly and efficient. I had a large omelet and my wife had a hamburger and fries. Both were excellent and large servings. I had told the server that I was mixed between the omelet and banana... More
