Very nice

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.

One of our party had eaten here before and raved about it. Ummm...we're not taking his advice anymore. This was OK, but very average and we've had much better in the area. The wait staff was just adequate, not really friendly at all. Not a big breakfast crowd, which tells you something right there. The eggs were just...eggs. The sides... More

Nice place but I'd rather eat at the Butterhorn in Frisco. The SC has a standard menu, nothing that sets itself apart as unique. It's always busy (on the direct route to Keystone and A'Basin ski resorts), so that's a good sign. If you need a filling breakfast before you hit those two ranges, then the SC is for you,... More

We stayed in Dillon, Co for 4 days and ended up eating breakfast at sunshine cafe 2 days in a row. The food was so fresh and prepared very healthy. The menu had a variety of usual items but also very different offerings. All 4 of us enjoyed it very much. Staff is very friendly!

Whenever we're visiting this area, we always plan on a breakfast at Sunshine Cafe. I've only ever had the trout & eggs because it's so good! My husband has other things, and we're both always happy. Give it a try!

Maybe it's because we are from the midwest, so hearty breakfasts are no stranger to us, but we found Sunshine Cafe to be average. Not bad, but certainly not mind blowing. Between the 7 of us, we had a mixture of dishes ranging from omlettes to breakfast sandwiches to waffles. Nothing outstanding. I wouldn't say to avoid it, but nothing... More
