OMG!! My son and I had gluten free french toast AND Belgian waffles! Amazing!!! Their breakfast menu was extensive and included so many gluten free options. We were in heaven and intend to go back there every day we are here on vacation. The staff was very friendly.

The breakfast there is so good, I ate there everyday of my vacation! I got a waffle combo (everyday) but added fruit compote. The waffles were perfect; crispy outside, soft middle but not so soft that the fruit made it mushy. (I hate mushy waffles) regardless of how picky I was about my eggs, they were always perfect and one... More

We were staying a few doors down so this was a convenient place. We saw the great reviews and gave it a try. Everything was outstanding, from the coffee to the pancakes to the omelets. The food and menu were extremely similar to the famous Pocahontas Restaurant (possibly shared ownership?)

My wife and I were trying to find a suitable breakfast spot in VA Beach. S we were leaving the Ramada, I looked across the street and I saw Sunnyside Cafe. We went over on a Friday morning and this is the breakfast place to eat at. My wife ordered the grits, bacon, toast and fruit bowl. I had biscuits... More

This is a top notch place for breakfast. Very popular even with the locals. Service was awesome and menu had a wide range of breakfast choices. Everyone was so happy and friendly there. Good value for the quality of food. Definitely recommend the French Toast.

While many other restaurants were closed in the Christmas Eve and Christmas Day time-frame, Sunnyside was open (albeit with modified hours on Christmas Day). The menu choices were many with an affordable price range. The service staff did a great job and the coffee cup was never empty.

My wife and I had 3 brunch meals here the last week of December 2016. Each meal we took care to order something different and we were not disappointed in any serving. The Belgian waffles are huge and she sucked one down because it tasted so good and also ate the rest of the sides. I had their exotic salad... More

Been coming to Virginia Beach for years, and this is the best place we've found for a traditional American breakfast. The freshness and quality of ingredients stood out. Home fries tasted like potatoes, crisp, simply dressed with salt and pepper. I would bet they cut the potatoes this morning. I don't see how they could be so flavorful otherwise. I... More
