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.

We wake up at the Colonial then enjoy a great breakfast at Sun Rise Cafe, what a great way to start the day. Always fresh and tasty i love the farmers sasage and the silver dollar pancakes so good. Staff always welcomes us with a big smile and quick to get you a coffee and take your order. Food always... More

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.

We like to go there for breakfast, is really good, and a friendly atmosphere. Is annexed to Colonial Motel, but you don't need to be a guest at the motel to enjoy the food.

This is our favourite place for breakfast in Port Elgin. You need to get here early or after the morning rush from 8:00 to 9:00 or you will be waiting in line for a table. The coffee is always fresh, hot and full bodied. I particularly like the garlic sausage with the regular breakfast of eggs and home-fries. What I... More

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
