Good, wholesome, fresh food. Fruit and other items sourced locally daily. GREAT service, food is served hot and fast and your coffee cup is never empty. Local hang out- seems like you are part of the family when you walk in.

Stopped in for breakfast at the recommendation of friends and we were not disappointed. Quaint local cafe located in a strip mall, the food is good and the staff is very friendly and helpful. Definitely the breakfast place for locals and we could see why. We would stop in again if we are in the area, highly recommended.

This is a little country cafe that my husband and I visit at least once a week. It's very family originated with a welcoming staff that is always pleased to serve you with a smile. Everything on the menu is delicious.

This is a wonderful place to go and eat. Small, quaint, and great service are a few of the reasons that the locals come here often. The prices were great and they were wonderful at working with many of my allergies.

Sunrise Cafe is one of our favorite places for a great breakfast. Popular with locals for its great food, good menu, and great service. A nice meeting place. Prices are reasonable. Omelets are made for big-eaters.

We read a lot of great reviews on a review site, so we thought we would give it a try for breakfast, but we ended up disappointed. The service was ok and the food was ok, but definitely only 3 out of 5 stars. I had an omelette with egg substitute and it was the weirdest texture to an omelette... More

This is a wonderful, family owned restaurant that serves up a great breakfast at a very fair price. Be sure to have the home fries with your eggs, they come with sautéed green peppers, onions, and mushrooms (any or all), and are crunchy and lovely. Beware of the omelets -they are huge, and could feed a small village!
