These are the cozy places you love to find.

How much small-town diner are we talking? We're talking Disney coffee cups at every table, and a register that only takes cash. Sunshine is charming, cozy, and everything you want to find when looking for Ma and Pop restaurants. The menu is simple, but you go to places like this to find a home away... read more

Home cooked food , nothing fancy but great selection and very reasonable prices . Good biscuits and gravy! It took a little while to get our food but on a busy morning with only one cook it wasn't bad. Would recommend!

I went here for my first breakfast when moving to this town and loved it! Staff was very friendly, the service was quick and all the other guests were very nice as well. Their French toast I ordered was very good. I would order that again!

This is a small friendly place. The food is okay and the prices good. If you're looking for cheap eats, this is the place.

Friendly staff, mediocre food at best. Bagel over toasted. Breakfast burrito was scrambled eggs and a link sausage cut up in a cold tortilla.

We ate breakfast here every morning. We stayed at a local hotel but went out for breakfast Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Food was good and made fresh. There were a lot of choices on the menu. The coffee was not that strong. I like very strong coffee so that was the only thing I missed about being home. Otherwise the... More

We had breakfast here on two different days about 4 days apart. Our breakfast was not included at the local hotel and Sunshine was only about 5 minutes away. They have a very broad breakfast and lunch menu at very fair prices. The coffee and breakfast were very good on both occasions and we would be happy to visit again... More

I have eaten here often. Food is always good, just like home cooking. Lisa is always friendly and helpful. The service is good. You will not go away hungry. It is not big or fancy, but delicious.

We were in Canada for the summer and our friends were in Niagara Falls - so we drove across the border and met them at the Sunshine Cafe for lunch. When we arrived there were some local patrons just finishing their lunches. The owner, Lisa, was very friendly and welcoming - and she sat down with us a couple of... More
