My wife and I stopped in for breakfast on our way to a kayaking trip. This is not a full service restaurant, you stand in line and place your order. When they call your number you go back and pick it up. Plastic utensils and paper plates and cups. The meal was okay, but not great. My eggs were overlooked... More

Our Friday motorcycle group had a great ride up the mountain so we could enjoy a very good breakfast at The Sunrise Cafe. The service was great and the food came quickly, hot and ready to eat. Our ten riders all enjoyed the food and atmosphere as we ate our late morning breakfast. The food is very good, not fancy,... More

Coffee was very good. It's walkup service that was amazingly quick for the number of people ordering. I had a pretty-good bagel with eggs and cheese but not the tomato I asked for. Not complaining though, it was quick and tasty.

My Family and I went to the Sunrise Café every morning on our vacation for breakfast except for Sunday-they are closed. They have the best lox and bagel. My Husband loves their Pisqah Sunrise. They also have excellent baked goods. Family friendly and budget friendly.

My wife and I tried to eat breakfast there today, after 3 or 4 bites we just left and went to waffle house. My omlet was overcooked and wife's grits, eggs and ham had no flavor

I always want this place to be a bit more creative than it is. The food is good, but not very imaginative. The vibe is friendly and local. I wish they didn't use disposable plates!! I'd love to see a stronger emphasis on healthy, interesting, quality ingredients!

I was a little scared when I saw the paper plates and plastic forks, but no worries. This is a fantastic breakfast place. Food was hot a delicious. Another great find with the help of Trip Advisor. The freshly brewed iced tea and coffee selections were great as well.

Small place in the center of a strip mall, on 64 across from the college. Good bread & iced teas. Medium number of menu and bakery items. Good food surrounded by a lot of local conversations. Local art sold from walls. Biggest downside- meal served on styrofoam plate w plastic utensils.

Wish the coffee were top notch -- but that aside, this place is a great breakfast spot. Food was really good. Too bad they are not open on Sunday. The staff was friendly, even early on a Saturday morning. Would certainly pick this breakfast spot over the other one we visited on this trip. Almost missed this one because it... More
