Everyone who works here is so kind! It's the cutest small town cafe you'll ever visit. Huge portions and delicious paninis and frozen blended coffee better than Starbucks or McDonald's! I can't wait to come back here next time I come to town!

I can not believe the new life and beauty that has been injected into this bistro since the change in ownership. The place has been cleaned up and is now comfortable and inviting and no longer cluttered and overwhelming. The staff and owners are friendly and approachable and the food is the freshest in town! I'm beyond excited that they... More

I work in Brooksvile. I have been to the Rising Sun Café 2 times. The first time was with some co-workers for lunch and the second was with my wife for breakfast. The first time I went the service was OK but the food was very bland and simple. I had chicken quesadillas and I swear it was just coby... More

Visiting the Blueberry festival and ducked in here for lunch to get out of the heat. They have a nice place, restaurant and bakery. The service was spread out and we had many people waiting on us. The blueberry smoothie was good. We split a Panini that was not our favorite - just okay. Fries were cold and dry. Food... More

Food is good and really healthy. Loved the oatmeal. The historic location in downtown brooksville is real cool. The setting is also a neat gift shop with lots of healthy local foods. Worth the trip!

Perhaps due to my naïveté (and ignorance), I had thought that this place would be an Asian type of establishment. (I wasn't alone in my assumption!). Wow was I wrong! This restaurant is a lovely tea room sort of place. I was there recently as a member of a group of Ladies Out to Lunch - and it was very,... More

Have some original dishes for lunch. Artwork and come crafts adorn the restaurant from local artists. Close at 3 pm. Great food, great desserts and coffee/tea assortment. Well worth it!

The most unique place in downtown Brooksville, this restaurant has become a meeting spot for business people, locals and tourists. Terrific breakfasts and a large lunch menu complimented by beautiful artwork around the place (all by local artists), great pastries and good service. At lunchtime, service may be a little slow as everything is prepared to order but if you... More
