Restaurant review: Sunshine Diner


Having walked past the Sunshine Diner many times in the past few months, we decided to stop in for a weekend lunch.

It’s a fairly busy place, and a typical brunch/lunch menu of burgers, sandwiches, soup & salad.  The breakfast menu is notable expansive, with a variety of omelets, eggs benny, french toast (plus the standard bacon & eggs).

But I wasn’t in the mood for breakfast/brunch, and opted for shrimp salad sandwich with garden salad and fries.


This is bay shrimp and sliced avocado with cream cheese and lettuce between slices of whole wheat bread.  It’s served with a small serving of hot crisp fries, and a small green salad with italian dressing.  It’s all fresh made to order.  I would have liked it more if the bread had been toasted.

My lunch companion ordered the deluxe burger with fries


The burger is made with a hand formed patty of lean ground beef, cooked to a well done.  It’s served on a toasted bun with lettuce, tomato, pickles, ketchup and mustard.  And it comes with the same sides as my sandwich.

The burger is pretty good, decent beef flavor, seasoned right, but it’s leanness meant it was a little on the dry side.

By the looks of the other restaurant patrons, this place is more popular for its breakfast & brunch, so I’ll have to try that next time.

This is a family owned and operated place, and the servers are pretty attentive, friendly and accommodating.

The dining room is kind of over-the-top 50s retro.  It’s like a 50s souvenir shop on steroids.  ie. checkered floor, neon, statues of Elvis Presley and Marilyn Monroe, but oddly enough, the music piping out over the speakers was pretty contemporary.
