This restaurant is delightful; the staff is friendly and attentive, and the food is great. (Their brussels sprouts are absolutely fantastic!!)

Large windows enabled lots of outside light to shine in, with booths set up to enjoy the street view. We had a party of four who savored every last bite. My chicken pot pie was spot on, with a beautiful flaky crust. If you like cocktails, try their version of an old-fashioned! I remember it had “Dad” in the name. Tribeca is out of our neighborhood, but will not hesitate on return visit soon

We had lunch on Mother’s Day and had a great time. The food was excellent, and the service was warm and welcoming. We love the ambience, such a beautiful space with lots of daylight. We have been a number of times, and the playlist is always great! Such a great vibe both visually and acoustically.

They sat us 3 black females by the emergency door and had patrons walking in the restaurant without telling us there is a possibility of traffic. The people were coming in off the street with my pocketbook exposed and us not knowing what was going on. When I spoke to the manager and my waiter both said the same thing there is a sign for pp not to enter but why place us in this spot when there was plenty of other tanles we could have sat but I guess we didn’t seem important in looks to qualify for other tables. It is their lost cuz I planned to have a office get together with 12pp but we will go to their competition Serafina across the street. Thanks for nothing Sunny Day cafe

Went for dinner with friends. The decor is very feminine and fun. We were seated in a booth which was protected by walls and felt very private. Servers and wait staff were very kind and friendly. We shared the crispy cauliflower to start, which was delicious! Two of us had lobster rolls. The peppers on top were extremely hot, which is great for some people, but too much for me. But otherwise, it was a generously portioned solid lobster roll with an enormous pile of fries to compliment. Our other friend got the chicken pot pie, which she really enjoyed. We ended with the cheese cake because it fit our craving at the time, but we want to try the lemon meringue next time as it was highly recommended by our server. Overall, we had a really nice time at Summer Day. A great place to meet friends. I would imagine the decor makes this a lovely place in the day, especially for weekend brunch!

Disappointing - price point was off, service was inconsistent, food was not memorable. The place lacked the vibrancy it is looking for. We summed it up as not worth it for a Saturday brunch with friends.

I had brunch and lunch on another day. Lunch was better but brunch was not good. Portions small, bad service and there were very few people in the restaurant. I really thought it was going to be good but just another Tribeca restaurant charging a lot and not worth it.

Food was delicious! The avacado toast was the best I’ve ever had. And the thick cut bacon superb. I thought the portions were just right, but my husband commented that the breakfast sandwich was smaller than expected (meaning so delicious, he wanted more). Service and atmosphere super friendly and just right for Sunday brunch. Background music really fun but maybe just a wee bit loud for the four of us. I will back!!

The food was very good. There were three of us and we all enjoyed our meals. The restaurant was empty when we arrived, but we were seated in the corner next to the supplies and in a large plant. The music was blasting - and we couldn't hear one another. The food is quite good - but it's too expensive for what you're getting and the type of restaurant. I hope they last here - it's a cute place - but there are too many other options in Tribeca to spend this kind of money on a casual place.

Although we had a group of 8 for brunch, I had reserved a table so it shouldn’t have come as a surprise. The wait wasn’t too long, and we got out drinks fairly quickly(I did enjoy my Bloody Mary—a very important component of a satisfactory brunch), the food took FAR TOO LONG. My avocado toast was served on a piece of “toast” that was literally black burnt and hard as cement (we were not charged—so thanks for that). Conversely, the English muffin with the Benedict wasn’t cooked at all. Sorry, but we won’t be back.

This restaurant is SO cute. I love the decor and layout, can’t imagine how dreamy it is during the summer. The staff is very quick and helpful. Best part is the happy hour drinks! The pea soup was average but loved the Brussels sprouts. Def on the pricier side. I would most definitely come back with out of town guests to impress them!

The food wasn’t great at all. Wouldn’t go back.

Our poached egg was not runny, fish was fishy, we got two items that were exactly the same and the waitress didn’t tell us.

Good experience overall though they lack in some areas. "charred broccoli" was actually steamed broccoli, and our steak came out barely room temperature. That was disappointing. However, our server was nice and the drinks were good.

I thought it was great and our group had a fun time. The only (minor) issue I had was that my steak dish was cold. I didn't send it back or ask them to heat it up because we were in a time crunch. But we would go back again!

Summer Day Cafe was recommended by friends, and we're so glad we tried it for dinner after a show at the Museum of Jewish Heritage. We had an excellent hanger steak plus artichoke hearts to die for, and a shrimp cocktail with the largest, freshest shrimp I can remember. A delightful meal.
