OKLAHOMA CITY - Fresh omelettes, pancakes, eggs Benedict.

It all makes for a delicious morning at the new Sunnyside Diner in northwest Oklahoma City.

Instead of bringing in friends and colleagues to test the food, the new diner is offering those in need a nice gourmet breakfast.

"We knew we'd have all this extra food because we have to cook everything on the menu a couple of times and we didn't want it to go to waste," Aly Branstetter, co-owner of Sunnyside Diner, said. "So, we thought we could invite our friends and family or we could help out the community.”

Even the tips over the next few days will go to Other Options, Inc., a nonprofit that helps families coping with poverty.

"We deal with people that don't have a place to live. So, you know we try to help them as best we can to get them food. Occasionally we have clothing items as well," David Barclay, an Other Options volunteer, said.

Aly Branstetter co-owns several restaurants, including S&B's Burger Joint and Hillbilly's on Automobile Alley.

She already works with TEEM, an organization that helps former inmates find jobs.

"All of the restaurants are my home," Branstetter said. "So, I have the opportunity to welcome these people into my home and show them hospitality and serve them which I think is the most important things we do."

Good food for a good cause.

Sunnyside Diner, located near Classen and N.W. 6th, opens Monday morning.

The diner will be open seven days a week 6 a.m. to 3 p.m.
