Yummy

This is the best place to have breakfast and lunch sandwiches. The long may look long, but it doesn't take but a few minutes to get seated. Have patience. They are closed on Mondays.

The Sun Break Café has a winning formula: excellent food prepared and delivered by great employees. The restaurant is an Auburn institution where families regularly gather for weekly outings or special occasions. The breakfast and lunch menus are fixed, but the staff is willing to make changes to enhance your dining experience. I have been a regular for over 25... More

We have enjoyed many brunches at Sun Break Cafe for more than 20 years. We first heard of them back when we were part of a hot air balloon crew. Getting up before the sun, and often shivering in the cold, usually meant we wanted great food, a warmly hospitable setting and really good prices. Sun Break Cafe has that... More

Steak and eggs, or ham and eggs, cant go wrong with either one! toast is warm, and done just right, coffee is there when you need it.

Ate breakfast here a few months ago. Just delicious; everything seemed fresh or homemade. Limited hours, though, is only complaint.

When I mentioned that the prices were absurd! ($18 omelette for one of many examples) the owner came over and started berating me and was appallingly rude! He told me to GTFO and he was calling the cops. Obviously we were already leaving, so while I waited for my girls to come up front he continued his threats and arrogant... More

Omg, what a friendly environment this restaurant had. From the time we walked in the people were very nice. The food was large and tasty. If your not a big eater, you may want to order the half proportions. I ordered the veggie breakfast half, and my husband had the French toast. Everything was huge. They definitely get two thumbs...

Massive servings of uncooked potato shreds is not an incentive to eat here. However the lunch time sandwiches are very good. as are the soups.

The exterior resembles an old (but modern) train station. Inside is well lite, with a lot of down home charm. I ordered the #4 omelet which is a combination of the #2 & #3. Let's just say "it had everything" and was outstanding. My cup was always full. On the morning of my visit the place was hopping, and the... More

We usually go on a Sunday morning. There is always a line so come early and expect to wait a little. You won't be seated until your whole party is present so forget about saving a table. The food is fresh and delicious, and the portions are always large so plan to take home leftovers.
