Morning, sunshine.

Breakfast is our favourite meal of the day, so imagine how ecstatic we were when we came across a 1950s-style diner that serves breaky all day. Satisfying all of our morning cravings is the Sunshine Diner. Herewith, seven reasons why we love it.

  1. The eye-catching jukebox, dazzling red and checkered interior, dozens of vintage photos and eclectic memorabilia covering the walls.
  2. Drawing everyone from die-hard Elvis fans to tourists and ski bunnies, to gals like us in the heart of Kitsilano, Vancouver.
  3. Signature 50s homemade milkshakes in a variety of flavours including peanut butter!
  4. Breakfast specials are to die for! The BC Benny ($10.45) includes two poached eggs with pacific smoked salmon and onions on an English muffin with Hollandaise sauce and special fries on the side.
  5. They only use grade A eggs from chickens who have been fed a vegetarian diet.
  6. If you’re not a breaky enthusiast like we are, take advantage of their selections of cold and hot sandwiches, burgers (Fat Elvis Burger) or select something from their Greek selection.
  7. The price! All breakfast specials range from $8 – $12. Definitely a bonus for the pocketbook and enough change left over to grab a latte across the street.
