Great possibilities

This could be a star in downtown Brooksville. very little competition ,with a little effort this place could work. Servers need a little more training but that can happen. Food is quite good. Owner came to the table, very nice touch. Music TOO loud. Will return...

A little late in sharing this but the experience was well worth mentioning. Rising Sun Café catered our office Christmas party. We had about 100 people and the food and service was exceptional. All of our team members raved about the experience. We look forward to working with them in the future.

This is my second visit since I spoke poorly of the service in December 2014. After my review I was personally contacted by the owner to apologize for my experience. Despite this it took a few months for me to return. I have to say that they have made enormous strides in the quality of their service. On both occasions... More

A relaxing space to grab a cup of coffee, lunch or dinner on the weekends. Live music makes for a pleasant dining experience. There is a small retail area that offers local soaps and gift items. Highly recommend a meal here.

I recently had the pleasure of being in Brooksville & stopped at Rising Sun Cafe for lunch. I ordered the Rueben sandwich which came with soup or salad & I opted to try the chicken dumpling soup. I wasn't disappointed with either. The sandwich was awesome as was the soup. Our server (Emily) did a great job. Restaurant was very... More

I went with 2 other girlfriends for lunch today. I had the Spinach Quiche & a cup of Broccoli Cheese soup. The quiche was the worst I have ever had & the soup was not much better. One of my girlfriends had the Chicken Salad sandwich that she said was really good. The other had a Salad with Chicken added...The... More

This is the second visit for me. Unfortunately each time the owners son apparently doesn't understand that being busy means staying in business. Despite not being swamped he's worthless. The wine and craft beer selections are decent so I'd like to be a regular but I've overheard him complain that he hoped it wouldn't be busy. Getting service is ridiculous... More

Ate here twice before since new management, thought it pretty good. Then took guests for lunch and was a little disappointed at the food. Salad was some sort of "avocado", so 2 of us ordered it, no avocado in sight and serving salad in fat, deep bowls makes it about impossible to get the dressing anywhere but on top. Sandwiches...
