Well worth the diversion from I95 on our trip north. Food and service was superb. Breakfast is my favorite meal and I wish I lived close to this place.

Had breakfast. Our order was taken promptly and served promptly. Serve staff was very attentive. Food was typical breakfast fare, but well cooked. Crispy bacon. We sat outside so we got to watch the people coming and going. Entertainment for a toddler.

We visited based on other reviews and we weren't disappointed! It was very busy...we got there around 10:30 for breakfast. We were seated within 10 minutes. The coffee was good and hot, the food was great as well. I got the crab cakes Benedict. Delicious! The pancakes were as big as the plate and very good! Highly recommend!

Waitress recommended the blueberry crème French toast dish... AWESOME is an understatement... Even the shrimp and hash dish was great. We ended up sharing the shrimp and hash as the meal and eating the French toast as dessert.

The portions are huge but they do not sacrifice quality for quantity. If they have crab cakes Benedict get them! They are amazing, no filler all crab goodness! Great chocolate pancakes. Great service despite the hustle and bustle.

This was our first visit to Sun Rise Cafe, and we were very pleased with the options, portions and prices. Our whole party (4 adults and 3 kids) enjoyed our meals and we can't wait to go back!

We selected the Palmetto Bay Sunrise Café based on reviews and by the fact that is was near the marina. I know some reviewers had mentioned that there was not a great view, but I thought there would at least be some tiny view of the marina or the water. But no, if you sit outside the ONLY view is...

Great local breakfast hangout! We take our boat and dock it at marina every Sunday morning for breakfast. We like sitting at counter and our chocolate lab loves joining us for outside dining. Nothing fancy, just good.

We found that Palmetto Bay Sun Rise Cafe received such great reviews, we had to give it a try. It was very busy on the weekend (not so much mid-week), but worth the wait! We received beverage service while we waited for the best breakfast ever! Service was amazing, food and value were great. I'd visit every day if I... More

You gotta get here early! Limited seating, dog friendly, bottomless coffee, and a topless bow spirit keeping an eye on you. There is no view of the sound. Staff has been here for years and we know them all on a first name basis. Order the 'Eggs All Ways' . . . their #1 breakfast. Every time we visit HHI... More
