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.

Important to know: cash only and limited seating. There is no way for a family of 7 to sit together, but we were lucky to get back-to-back booths. Coffee was good. Service was pretty good. Food was good, portions were good-sized. Not blow-your-mind food, but good quality, reasonably priced.

This is a traditional diner from the fifty's, so there is only so much room to sit. The staff is friendly. The coffee is some of the best ever, according to my husband and son. We each had a different breakfast and all of it was great. We even had the excitement of a black bear in the woods across... More

The diner has great food, quick service and lots of fun things to look at inside. Eggs Benedict and sausage and gray were great. Coffee was good and hot Waitress was quick and very nice. We got there early on a Tuesday and didn't have to wait for a table. By 9am there was a wait. Enjoy!

Becky was so friendly! Breakfast was awesome. Great place to eat. Very reasonable and everything is homemade! Just like taking a step back in time into an old fashion diner.

Maybe my standards are too high but I was not impressed. We did visit at a very busy time but the food and service were not outstanding. After reading all of the glowing reviews for this place, I was expecting something amazing. Greasy, American food. There was nothing special our outstanding about any of the dishes we got. It filled... More

In the old days this place was awesome. The orange juice was fresh squeezed and the maple syrup was 100% pure NH finest. Unfortunately the serve fake maple syrup in the real container to try and fool you into thinking its the real thing. If they were honest and served the real thing I would come back again.

We love the Sunny Day DIner and never miss an opportunity to eat breakfast there when visiting the White Mountains. The food is always fresh and cooked exactly to order. The homemade muffins are grilled to perfection and the homemade bread is second to none.The portions are large and the egg dishes, hash browns and french toast are simply the... More
