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!

Food is excellent with great variety. Huevos rancheros and chorizo enchiladas were delicious. Service is beyond wonderful, so friendly and knowledgeable. We have been coming here for years and the quality is consistently great.

We stopped at Sunshine Cafe and were seated immediately. Our much needed coffee came right away. We both ordered French toast combos with eggs and bacon. The eggs were served light and fluffy. The bacon crisp and the French toast eggy and perfect. This restaurant does not disappoint.

The Sunshine cafe is a tradition. I've been enjoying the breakfast trout with great hash browns , toast and eggs for years. Depending on the time of day my wife orders either eggs Benedict or the black bean veggie burger. It's a good deal considering the portions. Usually very fast service for home cooked food. Friendly staff.

We stopped here last year and absolutely we were stopping again! Had a wait this time because it was Saturday but we really expected it. Great service and large portions. Best thing is "REAL HASH BROWNS"! Very happy with our breakfast. We will make this a regular stop when in this area.

Awesome food, giant portions but it is pricey. It's been around for ages, but definitely worth a breakfast stop if you don't mind $10 or so for breakfast. (maybe I'm cheap)

Trip Advisor is our 'go to' resource when traveling. This place is a 4 but not a five. Rather long wait and I didn't think the place spotless. Soup was good. Staff was nice and caring. It is worth adding to your list.

Sunshine Cafe is by tradition, the best place in Dillon/Silverthorne to have breakfast and one of the best in Summit County. If you don't arrive by 8:00 a.m., you will likely have to wait to be seated. The wait staff is friendly and efficient, the menu is sufficiently broad to satisfy most breakfast fanciers. I particularly enjoy scrambled eggs (they... More

Beware of the blonde hostess that barks orders at the patrons. She barked at my 82 year old Mother after she called my name. I happened to be outside but, my Mother answered and said we were there. My Mother stood up to be taken to the table and the hostess barked at her to "sit down! Your table isn't... More
