The food here is less than average for diner food. The corned beef hash has a strange taste to it that stayed with me for hours. The blueberry pancakes had blueberries, but not many. It was a real disappointment.

This is such a cute little diner! They only take cash, so make sure you hit the ATM down the street. I got the eggs benedicts and it was delicious. My friend got the homemade hash and that was good too! (I stole a few bites)

We have eaten at the Sunny Day dinner several times over the years. We hadn't been in a while and were worried it might have changed, but there was no need to worry.
