Cafe Feels Great

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... read more

We visited this place twice during our week stay on HHI. Delicious breakfasts both times! Definitely a hot spot, we had to wait for a table for 20-30 minutes both times, but well worth it. Child-friendly. A staple for each HHI vacation for sure.

This is a small breakfast cafe with seating inside our outside. You may have to wait in line to be seated, but it is so worth the wait. The breakfasts are large portions and they are delicious with a southern flair.

The food was very good. They had a greek omelet special that was great. The family enjoyed their meals and the outdoor seating was pleasantly shaded and cooled with fans. This is a good little spot hidden away from the masses. Not our favorite breakfast spot, but one of the better ones.

The Breakfast burrito was outstanding. Food portions are large and they split the the food for our toddlers! The waitress staff were on point.

Called 10 minutes before arriving, and there was no wait. Got there and there was a short wait, which was fine. Waited 15 minutes for a table, seated with a bunch of different parties(they decided to let people sit in the open tables). Everyone seated after us had been served, and we had yet to have a waitress. Some scattered... More

The breakfast options here are numerous and the food was delicious. I had the shrimp hash, I highly recommend this dish, and my husband had half of a city ham Benedict and half of a crab cake Benedict, both were good but we decided we liked the city ham just a little more than the other. The wait staff were... More

Another hidden gem on Hilton Head. Family run breakfast and lunch restaurant with surprising specials (i.e., blueberry stuffed French toast with raspberry balsamic reduction). Very attentive staff and you'll be offered a cup of coffee to go at the end of breakfast.
