On our drive from Fort Collins, CO to Grand Junction, CO, my wife, a friend and I were traveling west on I-70. After taking the Silverthorne exit to look for a lunch place, we spotted the Sunshine Café in the Summit Place shopping center and headed in. We could see the restaurant was very busy... read more

We have been in dillon for a week. Heard about this place from a local. I wanted to try trout. The best meal I have had the entire trip. Trout, eggs, hash browns and toast. Hoping to go again tomorrow for the trout lunch after hiking.

We had lunch here on our way to Breckenridge for the 4th of July weekend.  The place was packed,  and rightly so. Our waitress was very pleasant and sported silly popcorn - print socks for Fun Sock Friday.  I had the Super Egg (salad sandwich). It was very tasty. Bob had the chorizo enchiladas; he was pleased as well.  Local... More

Love this place. I've been in the winter and the summer and the food was awesome both times. There can be a lengthy wait for breakfast, but it's worth it!

Stumbled into Sunshine Cafe. Loved the food, service and atmosphere. Nice selection of food. Had the enchiladas and chili. Both were tasty. Definitely would go again.

Went here twice on a camping trip, and had everything thing from hash to French toast to a burger. I would not say the burger was bad, but it was not as good as the breakfast stuff. The five stars are for the price and consistent quality.

Excellent service. The breakfast was delicious and more than I could eat. Highly recommend. If you're pulling a trailer there is ample parking.

Everytime I go here, I am happy that they have veggie food on the menu. The staff is friendly and super attentive! My coffee is always filled, and they are quick with orders. Love it here! It's a local's favorite.

We were pleased to find a good everyday cafe with a friendly staff and good food in a small resort town. Their prices were good and their servings generous.
