Breakfast was great

Small not chain like at all, very comfortable and well staffed. after a week on the road was nice to see smiling faces and happy to serve you attitudes. Food was above average, but the staff made it all worth it. The weekdays we were able to walk right in the weekends brought out the locals, so we... read more

We were here on July 4th. A lot of small restaurants were closed for the holiday. I found this gem on another review sits and am very pleased to rate it here. The Swedish pancakes were delish! Portions were generous and reasonably priced. I loved how different foods were served on different mixes of plates. Charming!

I don't much care for this cafe, for a variety of reasons, but I have to admit when I went there for breakfast a few days ago, the omelette I had was very very scrumptious. I ordered the corned beef hash omelette (sans the green peppers), and it was creamy, cheesy gooey, and top notch in flavor. Say what you... More

I have wanted one of there famous breakfasts for SOOOOOooooo long. But alas, the place closes before I can get there. I used to eat here when I worked the overnight shift and got out of work at the crack of dawn.

The food was good and prices were reasonable. Family friendly atmosphere. We found this cafe as we were driving around looking for a greasy spoon to have lunch at.

Were looking for the good breakfast spot that wasn't a chain and wasn't full of tourists. The Sunshine Cafe was a great choice. Definitely a hangout for local's, the service was supurb and the food good. In our group we tried the swedish pancakes, omelets, and the egg scramble. Very tasty and filling. Coffee was good as well. Nothing fancy... More

We love this place! Swedish Pancakes are amazing! I agree with the cheese comment; I had the breakfast sandwich once and it was totally American cheap cheese (but still pretty good). Reasonable, homey and really fun "diner" atmosphere with lots of fun decorations and fantastic service.

Just found this gem in West Duluth across from the KMart. Great food, service and reasonably priced. Great place for breakfast or anytime!

Was looking for that great "mom and pop" breakfast place to enjoy a hearty meal. This place fit the bill for the most part. We both had omelets, which were pretty good. However, the cheese was like a Kraft/Velveeta type cheese. And the grapefruit juice was a "grapefruit drink" rather than juice. A little more quality and this place would... More

The owner is soo sweet. Loved her. Very accommodating and friendly. The breakfast was amazing. I had a veggie omelette that tasted very fresh and light. I didn't feel bad eating it. Will come back soon I hope.
