On our way to Moab, UT from Denver. Stopped here for breakfast. Husband ordered huevos rancheros, I ordered yogurt, granola, bananas. Huevos rancheros were delicious! And best way to start my spring vacation, mimosa!

Breakfast and lunch is what they do here and it can't be beat. Love the amount of food we have had for our breakfast and love the fact that, even though there is a waiting list, they can get through it pretty fast. We often eat at the counter so that we can get seated faster. Employees have been here... More

Sunshine Cafe in Silverthorne is the go-to place for breakfasts with locals and visitors alike. Very popular (sometimes the line goes out the door), but the food is worth waiting for. Cheerful, attentive, and helpful staff; clean and bright surroundings; all your favorite breakfast items and more.
