The 4th (out of 4) diner we tried during our 8-day stay in New York, it wasn’t a very appealing place from the outside and once we stepped inside we didn’t change our minds, we decided to try it anyway as it was already a bit late to consider going somewhere else for breakfast. Our server was a Greek woman... More

We love this Diner & whenever we are in New York we have a least 1 visit. The staff are great, friendly & welcoming, always happy. The only problem is choosing what to have. The portions are very generous but so tasty you have to eat it all. Would definitely recommend & can't wait to go back.

Friendly staff, very accommodating. Ordered strawberries and cottage cheese, large portion - fresh. Eggs Benedict's were good, sauce more béchamel than hollandaise.

From the first step through the door, walked into a very negative environment that took over the whole experience. Lady behind counter was on a tirade which the whole restaurant had to listen to, both in English and Spanish; she even dropped the F-bomb about something like not working alone again. Very unprofessional. It was like a soap opera and... More

I liked the sandwiches that they serve, and the wide selection of desserts. This location used to be a Laundromat.

Breakfasts are big and plentiful. Good menu selection. Service speedy. What more can you ask for? It was open on Xmas Day too which was a bonus for us.

For a city that "never sleeps" my friends and I had a really hard time trying to find late night dinners! However, Sunflower Diner was not only opened late but it was delicious!!! They give you an exuberant amount of food, super nice staff (very attentive!) You get what your are paying for!!! definitely would recommend people to dine here!

My wife, daughter and I went to Sunflower last Monday evening for dinner. My wife got the pastrami sandwich...she said it was too much bread, and dry. My daughter got the Portabella mushroom veggie sandwich...she said she wished they had grilled or marinated the Portabella because it was tasteless and also had too much bread. I got the meatloaf dinner.... More
