We’ve all been there — every once in a while, you wake up in the morning and you just want to treat yourself to a nice breakfast. You don’t want to cook, you don’t want to clean, you just want to enjoy your morning and eat a delicious meal with your friends or family. Well, then, the Sunset Grill at 2006 Queen Street East is absolutely the place for you.
Immediately upon entering this little diner, you might be tempted to turn and run, but don’t give up so soon! The place is quite busy and on weekends there may be a pretty sizeable line. But I have never waited more than five to ten minutes, and it is worth it every time. There is a lot more seating tucked away in the back than you may initially think so the line moves exceptionally quickly.
The place is always bustling but somehow manages to maintain a warm, homey feel. It’s a true “mom and pop” diner at every turn. And the kitchen is visible from the restaurant so you can actually see the cooks working on the line. It really makes you appreciate the incredible food you are about to eat!
The best part about Sunset Grill is that you can easily get a well-sized meal for under $10. And they have it all: toast, eggs, pancakes, waffles, French toast, sausage, bacon, fruit, and pretty much every other breakfast food you can think of! The portions are great and you can pick from many different options as sides if you need a little something extra. The staff are very fast and efficient and quick to pour you a fresh cup of coffee or grab you more water.
In true diner style, you are presented with a handwritten bill at the end of the meal and you simply take it to the front to pay. Just keep in mind that it is cash only.
The diner is open from 7:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M. Monday to Friday and 7:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. on weekends. They also do takeout so you can even bring it home with you and enjoy breakfast in bed! So next time you are in need of a warm breakfast or brunch, pay Sunset Grill a visit – you won’t regret it!
