I brought a group of 14 to the restaurant and they took incredible care of us. They brought us sunny puffs to start, checked in on us constantly, and were quick and efficient with the food! Everyone loved their meals. I had a pasta with poblano peppers that was very good. Waitresses/servers were all extremely friendly. I highly recommend!

Glad we found this fun cafe for lunch. Whimsical interior transports you to some tropical island and away from all your problems. On the table you can play Checkers while you wait for your food. Waitress brings some fresh made donuts when we sat down - I would come here again just for those. Everything was very nice and the... More

You know it's going to be a little 'different' as you approach the door, where a sign boldly informs you that 'since nobody's been voted off the island, they're not hiring'. Someone thought that we needed a little Key West in Tucson - the restaurant is decorated like a beach bar, and offers some...interesting...takes on old-fashioned 'comfort food'. You can... More

We had a Denny's right around the corner of our hotel but decided to try this local cafe for dinner. The decor is a bit kitschy but fun. The menu is a combination of Mexican and American. My husband had fish tacos which were very good and I had an equally good salad in a Taco shell. Of note is... More

We searched for best diners in Tucson and Sunny Daze was right up there. And, it was only 6 minutes from the KOA on Tuscon where we were staying. What a delightful surprise. We went for an early dinner. The waitress we has was amazing. The portions are huge and they're delicious. I had the chicken fried steak and my... More

We had originally Yelped another place reviewed elsewhere that must have paid for their reviews. When looking for another place we ended up here. This was delightful. The décor is tropical/flamingos. The food was fantastic and ample for the price. My wife loves the patty melt, which was not on the menu. She enquired and they created it for her.... More

We have dined at Sunny Daze several times while in Tucson for Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner. The food is great, the staff is extremely friendly and the whole restaurant has a happy family vibe. We really enjoy the delightfully tacky decor, with flamingos (in Tucson?) abounding. The feel is an oceanfront cabana sort of thing. It's hard to explain unless... More

We had been by this place a few times and hadn't given it any thoughts to try until our neighbor at the RV park mentioned that we should give it a try. I must say I am so so glad that we did. We have been there twice now (dinner & breakfast). Dinner was good but I must say breakfast... More

We stopped after a doctor's appointment, since we hadn't really eaten breakfast. It's located in a small strip mall and looked like it might be quite busy, given the number of cars outside. But we were seated right away and served quickly. The atmosphere was relaxed and food was really good, with a nice selection. I had a California omelet... More
