Breakfast with my honey

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!

A fairly typical family restaurant. I think the present owner is the third generation to run the place. Back in the 1980s the old Greek couple used to hold court like European restaurant and bar owners have always done. But it's really just a diner - an atypical one, in that they are only open for breakfast & lunch -... More

We regularly go to the Sunrise Cafe for Sunday brunch (almost every weekend). The food is always good, the service is excellent and the owners make you feel like you are their most important customer. If you love biscuits and gravy they serve the best I've had since my grandmother passed, if you love omelets they have a nice variety... More

this is a very popular breakfast & meeting place for locals. Usually a wait on weekends. friendly service & good home made food. But portions have gone down and so has the atmosphere. Needs a good cleaning and upgrade of booths etc. We don't go as often as before.
