Sat outside with my son. The service was excellent. The food was even better. My croque madame was one of the best I've had. My son liked his southern bfast. The orange juice was fresh squeezed from the sweetest oranges I've tasted. We may go back tomorrow!

We went here for brunch and was pleased with the food we had. The place is a bit tight on space and it is obviously popular because it was packed. The staff is friendly and prompt with service which makes it good. It is within walking distance from main streets downtown.

I eat out for breakfast a lot and this is hands down the best breakfast I have ever had, the coffee was great too. This place is a hidden gem and would definitely recommend a... More

Great place for breakfast and given it was busy on a Thursday morning shows that it’s a favourite too with the locals. Plenty of seating too as it's split across two levels. Service was quick and friendly. And choice of either sitting at table or at bar. The poached eggs with goats cheese on a sliced baguette with a touch... More

Brunch is my favorite meal and Sunny Side Up was close to our rental condo. Eggs cooked to order, breakfast meat options, rye (!) toast... they had so many options our entire group was happy. Our server never let a coffee cup get empty, but I opted for a specialty coffee from their coffee shop downstairs. Very attentive service and... More
