Sunshine Cafe is a locals favorite for over 30 years. Consistently a top breakfast and lunch destination with the credibility of being awarded the "best breakfast" in Summit County, CO by the Summit Daily for the past 5 years straight. Friendly staff and a wide menu variety are the hallmarks of the Sunshine!

Under new ownership last year, one might worry that your favorite breakfast spot in Silverthorne might lose a step or two, even in transition. Not to worry. I'm happy to say that the Sunshine Cafe continues to provide a friendly, affordable and delicious breakfast and lunch. It seems like it's always packed for breakfast and for good reason: their benedicts... More

Everyone is so friendly at this strip mall cafe. I bet every employee smiled and said hello to us at least once during out visit. Kudos to the owner for hiring friendly people and making smiles a priority. Breakfast entrees were huge. Normal sized people could certainly split one and be satisfied. Will definitely visit if in the area again.

To me, best breakfast in Silverthorne / Dillon, Colorado. Just a good, old-fashioned breakfast, well prepared, served hot, good coffee and a friendly atmosphere

Although we arrived on a busy morning we were seated within 10 minutes. Our server was great and very knowledgeable of the menu. The menu offers a variety of breakfast/brunch items for every pallet. The portions were good and the food was delicious.

It's a bit of a line (25mins) for Sunday brunch- but well worth the wait. We had eggs over medium and the burrito.. Coffee and a mimosa. All excellent- not many places tend to get that egg order right. All servers were exceptionally friendly and helpful. Sadly this was a vacation so this won't be a regular spot, but a... More

Every year we stop at Sunshine Café for breakfast on our way back to Denver. I have never had a bad meal, and would highly recommend the French toast. Every year we see the same staff members, and they are always friendly and fun. If you are in the area, and want a wonderful breakfast and delightful service, this is... More
