There was a long wait on a Sunday morning, but it was worth it. The food was plentiful and the service was outstanding. Certainly worth a trip here.

We visited here based on a local recommendation. The specials for the morning (French toast with apples, walnuts, and carmel and the Quiche of the day) were well prepared and more than ample. I would highly recommend this establishment!

We visit HHI two or three times a year and always have this friendly, quaint cafe at the top of our list of breakfast and lunch stops. We've never had a bad meal either from their menu or their specials. It's a small place that is busy almost every day. However, we've never had to wait more than 10 or... More

Now one can see their scampi over some pasta or rice but as a open face sandwich you made my mouth water!! Not too many places you can find Shrimp hash and some of the best crap cakes around. I would suggest one gives the Sun Rise a try next time on Hilton Head Island!! You will enjoy without a... More

The woman who seated us seemed stoned out of her gourd. After a way too long wait a random woman asked if we had been helped. We hadn't. She took our order. Another brought it. Someone else checked in on us and someone se took our payment. It was very chaotic and not in a cool way. The food was... More

My wife and I recently visited Palmetto Bay Sun Rise Cafe based on reviews on Trip Advisor. We both got the Early Bird Special Breakfast - 2 eggs, hash browns, toast and breakfast meat. I got sausage links and my wife got bacon. We both ordered our eggs scrambled well done and dry!! We have the hardest time getting eggs... More

This is a small restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating. We ate inside and it was very loud - I'd recommend eating outside. We had every waitress in the place check on us, which was nice. The food was very good: fresh fruit, standard french toast and eggs. The only off-putting event was when one of the waitresses handed the... More

We had a wonderful breakfast our first morning in hilton head. I had the biscuits and gravy. They were the best I've ever had and I'm a b and g connoisseur. Lol. My wife had the crab cake eggs Benedict. She loved them as well. Overall great breakfast.

This was our second year to visit Palmetto Bay Sun Rise Café for breakfast. The service and food did not disappoint. Although the place was quite crowded, we were seated immediately. We ordered and our food was delivered in a timely fashion. We are basic eggs and bacon people, but the menu offers many more items. I had the French... More

We went for breakfast on Sunday, it was extremely crowded but our wait time was less than 10 minutes. We ate on the patio. The staff was very friendly and you can tell they are a well oiled machine when it came to handling such a huge crowd of people. I had the banana rum pancakes, so very delicious, with... More
