This was by far the best food we had the entire trip. We had 6 people in our party , it was only a 10 minute wait. Staff was friendly and attentive. We had Charles as a server and he was very enthusiastic about his...job. We mixed between breakfast food and lunch food and out of all of it the only thing "wrong" was my dad wanted runny fried eggs and there was no yellow in them as they were over hard as they said. The fruit platter was enough to split between three kids and the adults steal a couple bites. pancakes were my favorite part of the meal and their pickles were awesome. If we come back we will be headed here for a brunch excersion.More

This place is always close to packed in the mornings, and with good reason. Wide menu selections catering to both Yankee and Rebel tastes. Good coffee, very good service every time we have been here.

Good food, although some of the items weren't hot. Reasonable pricing. I would go back again when they aren't so busy

Breakfast July 3, 2022. One block walk from our hotel. Very nice facility. Great wait staff. Food was good. BUT, the restaurant permitted dogs inside. Dogs that were not service dogs. I am a dog lover. Call me old school. I have a problem allowing...animals in a restaurant. While cashing out, our cashier was complaining about these dogs in the facility. She was upset she couldn't do anything about it. She said if you confront the owner they get mad and the post a bad review for the restaurant. I told her I would NOT be back because of them allowing animals in their dining room. So here's a negative review because YOU DO allow animals inside. If you're concerned that much about bad reviews then I suggest the owner invest a resource into monitoring all reviews and publishing responses to rebut those that are falsely stated.More

Food was good, but not great. Strawberry pancakes are just pancakes with sliced strawberries on top & that was disappointing for my daughter. Maybe other items are better because it was busy.

Both the Crab Cakes Benedict and the Meat Lovers omelet were excellent. Our waitress was very attentive and stopped by a few times during our meal to ensure that our coffee was topped off and we had the necessary condiments. We would recommend Sunnyside.

This has become our spot for brunch when staying at the beach. This time we were seated quickly and enjoyed another good brunch. I had french toast, fried potatoes, bacon, and sausage links. My companion had eggs (the restaurant was able to accommodate the special...request for boiled eggs), bacon, fried potatoes, and toast. We knew the food would be good, but the highlight of our visit this time around was chatting with Jack, our attentive, efficient, conversational, and humorous server.More

We went for breakfast and were quite pleased. We were able to park on the street ( there is a lot in back of the restaurant). The restaurant itself is new and clean. The staff was attentive and pleasant. The drinks were good. The food...was above average. A very pleasant experience!More

Food was ok and service was good. I ordered the stuffed French toast meal. I was expecting the stuffing of cream cheese to be sweet. But it was more like a block of plain cream cheese in the middle of the French toast. Except for...that it was good. My husband got the regular french toast and enjoyed it.More

We were overall disappointed in this restaurant. I got a simple bacon, eggs, and pancakes breakfast and my husband got a crab omelette. The bacon was paper thin and the pancakes were hard and dry. It was weird… they had the awful texture of bisquick...pancakes. Just not good at all. My husband’s omelette was good, but his homefries were very undercooked. Just disappointing for a breakfast cafe. Also, no one here practiced any safety precautions for COVID. They looked at me like I had two heads because I wiped down the greasy menus and salt and pepper shakers. (Btw dirty menus and salt/pepper shakers bothered me before COVID. Just gross.) We probably would not return to this restaurant when there are so many better options to choose from in VA Beach.More

Marian, These questions go to past reviewers, not the restaurant. You’ll have to ask the restaurant by phone or email. I’ve only been there for breakfast so I don’t know about cranberry sauce.
