Hard to find but worth the effort. This quaint little family run restaurant with Hungarian touches is unique and outstanding. They make beautiful omelettes with sausage that should win some kind of award. Every dish is painstakingly made fresh, from scratch. It’s reasonably priced and...More

Clean and a great experience. We ordered from the breakfast menu, and enjoyed everything we ate. I especially enjoyed the fresh grapefruit juice, and scrambled eggs with red pepper & kale.

The Days Inn right next door was barely acceptable, but with the SunnySide next door we will stay there again. The crab cakes eggs Benedict were so good.

I highly recommend the Goulash soup. It’s so good that I order one for there and another to go. The pancakes are the tastiest I’ve ever had. They taste like cake. Service is fast, friendly and clean.
