A Family Favorite!

Love this place! Haven't had anything the menu that wasn't good after many, many visits! We bring family and friends with us, and they love it, too. Be prepared to wait on the weekends, but they are still quick and efficient at seating and serving! There are other shops in the marina, and you... read more

This place was packed. The food came out on time. We were seated within 20 minutes and finished eating in 30 minutes. The wait staff all checked on us, not just our server. Great place for breakfast. I wish they didn't allow pets on the outside deck while people are eating but not a deal breaker.

Great food at reasonable prices. FINALLY got a Bloody Mary bar for those of us who sho up for brunch on Mother's Day and have to wait an hour or so. We love it!

Great local place. Only open for breakfast and lunch. Lots of outdoor seating. Excellent service. While we had a main waitress, others would ask if we needed anything or refill water, etc as they were walking by. Group service is a much more efficient model, and they have it down.

Breakfast was delicious and well worth the price. There was a wait but the hostess worked hard to keep wait times to a minimum. The waitress knew the menu and was able to help with any questions we had. Definitely will go back.

It can be challenging to find a good place to eat breakfast if you are not staying somewhere that serves breakfast in-house. This eatery did the trick. We ate out on the porch which was very pleasant. I had the quiche which changes variety every day. The wait staff was pleasant and prices were good. The restaurant is very laid... More

Found this spot on recommendation of our sea kayak guide, and we are so glad we did! Very local-friendly breakfast and lunch spot--nothing too fancy. We sat at the counter to avoid waiting for a table, and watching the cooks at work was its own entertainment. Staff are friendly and efficient. All of the food was outstanding! The blueberry cream...

We always have a great meal here. The breakfast options are plentiful and the daily specials are always a big hit. My husband and I always make a stop here when we are down.

The Sunrise Cafe definitely has the feel matched to it being named so. Coming early for breakfast definitely is a benefit for no wait times and beautiful outside seating. Top 5 places to go for breakfast hands down. Service is sporadic but very attentive. Can't complain that I couldn't find a waitress for anything when I needed it. Will definitely... More
