I live nearby and have eaten here and ordered delivery food countless times. Uniformly good, friendly service (dining there is cash only), and very reasonably priced.

We were staying overnight at the Wyndham Garden on the next block and passed this diner on our search for a place to eat dinner. After walking toward 55th St on 5th Ave and not finding anything appetizing we came back to the Sunset Park Diner. We were warmly greeted by our server and she gave us several recommendations. We...

I loved this diner! I felt a bit like Marty McFly walking back in time and I enjoyed every second here enormously. It's in a very local are of Brooklyn and away from all the hipsters. It's cheap, the food is hearty and tasty and it's an authentic old school set up that really gives you a taste of time... More

We ate here twice and stopped one evening for a donut. The food is fresh and service was really great. It is a small Diner but were always busy when we were there. They do take out and have a delivery service. They are on the corner of 39th Street & 5th Avenue.

The pumpkin donut was delicious, and the others they had looked good and fresh. The other food, including the blueberry pie and mozzarella sticks, were ok. Nice staff too.

This is the best diner we've ever visited in New York, and in the US as a whole. Excellent value breakfast with very generous portions, and donuts are great as well - and very cheap. A proper, authentic and friendly neighbourhood diner.

Excellent food, and their donut offerings are superb! The French Crueller with a touch of icing across the top was quite amazing

Had a western omelet and home fries. The food was great. Our waitress was very friendly and helpful. They have great looking donuts but I opted for a piece of cheesecake. It was VERY good. Only sorry I discovered this gem on the last night of my week long stay in Brooklyn.

This diner is always crowed. The bus depot and many businesses are close by. They defiantly are located in a good place for business. There's usually a short wait to be seated My husband loves this place and decided to take his family. We honestly did not care for the home fries, they were very greasy. I also felt that... More
