Part of Colonial Motel. Best breakfast in Port Elgin. Clean, food tastes great, basics for breakfast and lunch. Had steak & eggs with home fries & rye plus coffee, all perfect. Nice staff. There are beautiful quilts for sale and the adjacent motel has antiques. My favorite breakfast place in either Port Elgin or Southampton.

OK breakfast place

The place was hyped to us by locals and just didn't meet expectations. I had the omelet which was OK but the cheddar they used in it wasn't great. Just normal diner food as far as I can tell.

even of you are not a guest in the adjacent motel, you can go there to have a great breakfast. Lots of options, friendly service, and the price is right.

Walked into the restaurant and waitress just sort of looked past us. It said to seat yourself so we did. She completely ignored us, ... no acknowledgement at all. Luckily a young man came and finally offered coffee and took our order. I ordered standard bacon and eggs over easy, my friend had the hungry man with 3 eggs bacon... More

If you're staying anywhere around Port Elgin a trip to the Sunrise Cafe will be worthwhile. It is exceptionally clean and has excellent service and the breakfast here is consistently good. The staff are quick to try to meet any special request and you really have to admire the way they keep your coffee topped up. Prices are reasonable, especially... More

I really needed a clean, quiet and friendly enviroment when I found my family without a roof over our heads for a week. They were there. I cannot thank them enough for being there for us. The pool is terrific, the hot tub is relaxing. I also work as a waitress in the Cafe and the staff is efficient and... More

We ate our breakfast at the Sunrise after spending the night at the Colonial. The motel was full and so was the restaurant the next morning. A large group was being served in the banquet room but we were ushered in quickly and served our coffee within minutes. Our waitress was super busy but was still very friendly and took... More
