Naked Café (fully vegan) 571 Lawrence Avenue The Naked Café
Another inspired restaurant by RauDZ Creative Concepts Ltd., located around the corner from other RCC hotspots RauDZ Regional Table and micro bar & bites. The name Sunny’s is a tribute to their shared photogenic golden retriever and a play on the sunshine of the Okanagan Valley and the restaurant’s prime Lake Okanagan location.
Like the pre-fab stainless steel dining cars of the original diners, Sunny’s floor plan is a long and narrow footprint. Framed by a reclaimed brick wall, a soaring 20’ ceiling topped with wooden timbers, Tim Bullinger of Arca 3 Design Studio satisfies our craving for diner nostalgia but gives the small space a decidedly modern twist. Guests can grab a spot at the 16-seat stainless steel eating counter where they can keep an eye on the traditional diner open kitchen. With only 30 seats expanding to 44 when the patio weather arrives, breakfast and lunch are exclusively on the menu with breakfast served all day.
The culinary team led by award winning Chef Butters and Sunny’s Top Dog Chef Robyn Sigurdson offers fresh, innovative takes on diner fare. You’ll need to brush up on your diner lingo as ‘Cluck and Grunt’ will get you your order of eggs and bacon and ‘Two Cows, make ‘em cry’ for your double stack burger with onions along with your order of Dog Soup aka water. Guests can also enjoy their Bloody Mary or a bottomless cup of great diner coffee.
