Our server Sue was very friendly and very tentative to our needs. I ordered French toast with fruit on top. Absolutely the best I have ever eaten. Our nephew had an omelette with potatoes, toast and bacon. He devoured it so fast he was done...More

Went once for breakfast, good selection, more than enough food, great service, good quality. I'd probably go back if I was still in the area.

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.

The place is clean. Right off the freeway. Had a strong cup of coffee which was fantastic! Good home cook meals.

Homemade soups? Chili made with harissa? This diner is always full of surprises. The food is consistently good, and the staff is very accommodating! Pleasant 50's, 60's atmosphere. Breakfast is excellent, lunch is fast and good--especially with soup/sandwiches--and the staff treats you like family. Prices...More

Food is standard diner fare. Best for breakfast, have not tried lunch nor dinner. hard to mess up breakfast. Very friendly if you are a regular. Prices a bit high for the value received. Daily specials...but coffee still is an extra charge.
