I stop by Sunshine on the way to the slopes and it's a much friendlier and tastier option than most of the breakfast on offer near the resorts. The staff seem genuinely friendly and the service is very fast. Sometimes I've found it busy (read: wait for a table) but you can also sit at the counter if there's room.

Amazing chicken fried steak and eggs! Gravy was great and the hashbrowns had the best flavor. Wow! Service was great! Ladies were so friendly. Will definitely return!

On a recent jaunt across Colorado, we stopped in Silverthorne for a late-morning breakfast and we were lucky enough to happen upon the Sunshine Café. The most complicated thing about the place is finding it- but don't give up! Its located in the middle of a shopping center a bit off Route 70 by way of Rt 6 - if... More

Sunshine Cafe has a big following but nothing here will really knock your socks off. Everything from atmosphere to service to food lacks personality. It's consistently ho hum. Avoid the hash, unless you like a plate full of canned cat food.

Great food and service. The menu has wide variety of options including some off the wall selections. I will bring family here to eat when they are in town to visit. I can't say enough good things about this restaurant.

Best breakfast in the area. I highly recommend the trout and eggs. Reminds me of a very hearty type of breakfast in southern iowa, more food then one can put away. Kris chariton iowa

When we arrived in Silverthorne, we had came here because it was the #1 breakfast restaurant in the city, but the experience was not so convincing. The waitress was nice, but every one of the waiters looked as if they had just woke up themselves, and were very sloppy in their appearance. Food was good. But, that's as far as... More

Traveling along Interstate 70 and looking for a part for the automobile. Stopped in Frisco, CO at a NAPA Store. While there, I asked one of the associates about a nice place for breakfast and he directed me to the Sunshine Cafe in Silverthorne, CO. The Cafe has a very friendly staff of waiters who never allowed my coffee to... More

We stop by here every time we come through Siverthorne. We are never disappointed by the food here. It is always fresh and great! Service is always good, and quick. You always get your moneys worth here, and never go away hungry. Weekends you do have a wait for breakfast though, but its worth it.
