Best breakfast in the area. I highly recommend the trout and eggs. Reminds me of a very hearty type of breakfast in southern iowa, more food then one can put away. Kris chariton iowa

When we arrived in Silverthorne, we had came here because it was the #1 breakfast restaurant in the city, but the experience was not so convincing. The waitress was nice, but every one of the waiters looked as if they had just woke up themselves, and were very sloppy in their appearance. Food was good. But, that's as far as... More

Traveling along Interstate 70 and looking for a part for the automobile. Stopped in Frisco, CO at a NAPA Store. While there, I asked one of the associates about a nice place for breakfast and he directed me to the Sunshine Cafe in Silverthorne, CO. The Cafe has a very friendly staff of waiters who never allowed my coffee to... More

We stop by here every time we come through Siverthorne. We are never disappointed by the food here. It is always fresh and great! Service is always good, and quick. You always get your moneys worth here, and never go away hungry. Weekends you do have a wait for breakfast though, but its worth it.

Found this small place and so glad we did. The wait staff was very pleasant and personable. The food was the best we have had in all our trips to Breckinridge. We drove both days because it was so good. Waffle was ordered crispy and it was the hash browns also nice n crispy as ordered. Taste was excellent and... More

Of course it could just be that it was a Sunday morning in a tourist town, but I have enjoyed the Sunshine on three different occasions and it is always very good. Thank you again !

I love going to see my clients in Silverthorne mostly because we eat. Three times they have taken me here and every time it is really good. If you are in a hurry go to a fast food place... But if you want good food and have time to wait for a table, do it. You won't regret it.

We thoroughly enjoyed our breakfast experience at the Sunshine Café. The staff is well trained and friendly. The hostess was very accommodating to our large group. We had excellent service and the food was very good. I can recommend the French toast and the eggs benedict. If we lived in Silverthorne we would make The Sunshine Café a regular stop!

We ate @ Sunshine Café our last morning in Silverthorne, best choice we made during our 5 day stay! The staff was so cheerful, helpful that the food could've been only so-so and we would have still enjoyed it. Our breakfasts were fixed to order perfectly, plenty of food but not too much and the prices were very reasonable. We... More

We have enjoyed the Sunshine since it opened in the 1980's. It has always had great ownership and a unique wholesome menu - vegan or carnivor. As a breakfast favorite, they'll put green chili on the side of anything - if you ask! The service is always good & Dairy Queen is next door. So, if you're near the Silverthorne... More
