Best breakfast spot! It gets very crowded...but worth the wait! You can go traditional breakfast fare ( eggs & bacon) or healthy. Lots of options. Dog friendly! Very friendly staff. Have a villa within walking distance so very convenient for breakfast for our family.

I asked the front desk clerk for the best breakfast on the Island. Without hesitating he said, "the Sun Rise Cafe." As we were leaving for home and the restaurant, at Palmetto Bay, is on the way off the island, we had a Sunday midmorning breakfast there. When we arrived we were 15th on the list, but the constant energy... More

We have eaten here at least 5 to 6 times. My wife and I love this place for breakfast. the food is terrific everytime we go. We have found this to be a great place to ride our bikes to on each morning, eat breakfast, and then tour the island on bikes afterward. Many times there is a line for... More

We love eating here for breakfast. The staff is exceptional. Every single server will interact with you at some point during your dining experience. Your coffee never gets empty. I feel pampered every time I eat here. It is nice seeing a staff that really enjoys their job and are there to make you feel at home. The food is... More

By far, the best dining experience we have had in HHI in 3 trips to the island. I had the shrimp and grits blue plate special. This was the best shrimp and grits I have ever had! Even topped with 2 fried eggs and toast. A huge mimosa for $6. Service was awesome! Sat at the bar and it was... More

This popular Café has a menu that you wish was available where ever we go out for breakfast. Later this week we will be going for lunch. The service and food was excellent. I could not make up my mind between the crab cake benedict and the sunrise benedict (avocado, grilled red onion and sliced tomato) so the waitress suggested... More

We decided to have breakfast at his lovely Café after it was featured on the cover of the “Taste of Hilton Head” Magazine. Best decision ever. Breakfast was fabulous! The food is excellent and the service even better. We sat outside although it was a chilly day. Patio heaters warmed the area and there were even blankets on the chairs... More

My family has been visiting HHI every year for 20 years. There are only 2 places we go out for breakfast on the island and this one is my favorite. The food is so fresh and tasty- I salivate just thinking about it! Cant wait to enjoy it again in June!

If you love being doted on by incredibly attentive waitresses who are omnipresent, then come here. Everyone that works here is a pro. This is the only breakfast place we come to, and if it's too busy we just go home to cook! Such a nice environment to slowly wake up and eat some good food with nice coffee. The... More

The manager at the Red Roof Inn where we were staying suggested this restaurant to us. Thank goodness we listened as not only was the food and service excellent, the prices were very reasonable. An added bonus was the outdoor dining area so we could dine with our dog. I had the 2 eggs with sausage patties, hash browns and... More
