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.

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 had a... More

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.

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.

Steve whips up real whole eggs from scratch, one order at a time in a stainless steel bowl. No prepackaged, premixed, Frank-en-eggs for him. So when your omelet arrives filling up your plate, piping hot, stuffed full of your choice of ingredients, the eggs are feather light, gently, perfectly cooked, tasting of real butter. He also precooks the filling ingredients... More
