The food and staff were awesome. They were able to get us a table to accommodate our group even during there breakfast rush. Awesome setup with vintage pinups and posters. Food came quick and tasted truly home made and excellent.

I have a weakness for a good diner. This one has a lot of booths and a table area. A lot of Marilyn Monroe/Elvis type pictures. Pleasant diner environment. Had the meat lovers omelet and coffee, both good. Would definitely come back.

It's actually hard to find a decent diner anymore but Sunlight takes you back. Clean, airy interior. Diner standards freshly prepared. Excellent breakfast options (large portions) at very reasonable prices. Friendly staff.

My wife an I have eaten here for dinner twice, and have enjoyed it both times. A fifties style diner ambiance, with good food and very reasonable prices. We haven't been here for breakfast yet, but look forward to trying it soon.

A visit to the Sunlight Diner is like a trip in a time machine. The neon pinks and checkerboard floor give the appearance of a diner from the 50's, but the similarities don't stop there. I've been here for breakfast a number of times and...More
