What a wonderful place for breakfast!!! The waitresses were attentive and were knowledgeable about gluten allergies, this made ordering breakfast a lot easier. We stopped for breakfast both Saturday and Sunday morning before we started hiking the White Mountains. My ham and cheese omelette was delicious and when they ask you if you'd like their home made homefries, say yes,... More

This is a classic old fashioned diner with better than average food. Love it here. We try to go each time we're in the area.

This is a must for my family whenever we are in New Hampshire. My husband is a big fan of silver diners, and the food is amazing.

When you first walk in its not clear what to do with yourself. Do you seat yourself or wait etc. Other than that its a cute place and the food was good and prices were good. Not overly friendly but nice enough. Decent coffee and excellent blueberry pancake!

We were looking for a good place for Sunday morning breakfast, places had people waiting out the door at 8:30 in the morning. I found Sunny Day via my Trip Advisor App it turned out to be a great place for three hungry little boys with mom and grandma. We sat at the counter and the wait staff was very... More

This is it, if you want to try the diner experience, this is a place you should go to. It is even in the classic metallic trailer that make you fall suddenly in the 50's. There were four of us (my wife, a couple of friends and myself) and we all had another diner classic food: the hamburger. Forget about... More

We make a three hour round trip at least once a year to go for lunch here. The Reuben sandwich is the best I've had anywhere. The salmon and cream cheese omelette is fabulous, as is the banana bread French toast. I highly recommend it.
