I went to breakfast with some friends who already knew about this place. The food is wonderful. Eggs bene in several versions including lobster, pancakes & french toast with real maple syrup, simple eggs with crispy bacon or fat sausage links. All cooked to perfection. The setting is very nice, with views of main street and the lake beyond. There... More

The hotel we stayed at didn't serve breakfast. It's an American thing. We went over the road to this place, a typical diner serving the usual fayre. The food was OK but when we ordered it everything came at once, coffee, cereal, cooked food the lot, so by the time we'd finished everything was cold. Not too impressed, a bit... More

I love Sunshine and Pa's, my sons love Sunshine and Pa's, my daughters-in-law love Sunshine and Pa's, but on top of all that: my grandchildren are absolutely crazy about having breakfast there, any season of the year --it is an indispensable feature of our family vacations in the lakes, Squam and Winnie.

Great service and delicious food. Little bit of a wait but that's because they were so busy. Definitely worth it. We had eggs, waffles , crispy bacon and multigrain pancakes and all was delish.

We've been coming here for years. We've always had great services and solid food so we have an expectation for Sunshine & Pa's . We came in yesterday for an early breakfast. The server stopped us in the doorway and demanded our unmarked white styrofoam cups be thrown out. I haven't had my first cup of coffee and already felt... More

Visited for lunch and we were glad we did. The service was terrific, very friendly. The food was fantastic. I had the pastrami sandwich which was wonderful. The soup of the day was turkey vegetable and it was one of the best soups I ever had. My grandson had a Texas Burger that was huge. We were happy we stopped... More

Obviously, the place to go for breakfast. They do serve at other times of the day but we didn't have that experience.

First time to this place and loved it. Great service. Nice view. I had the pastrami and my wife had the corned beef. Each was juicy and filling. Sides offered were fries, soup, salad, cole slaw or fruit bowl. We saw a guy at the next table have one of the 1/2 lb hamburgers. He got his lunch before us... More

Sunshine and Pa's has been our go-to place throughout all the years we've gone to Meredith. Great place and always crowded but you get seated quickly somehow. I don't know how.
