Felt right at home at the sunset park diner. Tasty menu - I opted for Chilaquiles and my friends ordered off the Brunch Specials menu as well. Great hot chocolate, very friendly waitress. Did not get the donuts, but hey, gives me a reason to come back!

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
