We came here on our last day in Hilton Head. It was rainy and a little chilly the morning we came. We sat inside as we had our baby with us but most definitely would have sat outside with the heaters had it just been my husband and I. It was another very small place but very busy. The service...

We travel to Hilton Head every year during the winter to avoid the crowds and the mosquitos. We happened upon this place as Stacks was closed during our stay (December 18-22). We waited a couple of minutes as it was packed. We ate inside as it was pretty cold though they do have heaters for the outside eating area. The... More

As one of our traveling companions said when asked about the service he said " what service". This true unfortunately , we were outside and had to wait for everything. To order, for coffee, for our bill. It was not particularly busy. The food, however, is well prepared. This was our seventh or eighth time eating here and previous visits... More

This is a very busy place on a Sunday morning, because it's so popular!!! Food's really good too! Their eggs Benedict are fantastic. Just real crowded.

We asked several different people for recommendations on a good place for breakfast and all said, without hesitation, Sun Rise Cafe! My husband had the Crab Cake Eggs Benedict and I had the Huevos Rancheros (special of the day). Food was excellent and our coffee cups never made it below the half cup mark before someone was refilling them. We... More

We had breakfast there and could not have been more pleased withnour choice. I got the shrimp, hash brown, egg dish and my husband got the apple-cinnamon pancakes. Both were delicious and highly recommended. The pancakes come two on the plate and they cover the whole dinner plate. The bacon was prepared perfectly!

We ate here our last day in HHI had a great experience! It was really chilly, but they had 5+ Heaters in their outside seating area. By the end we were almost too warm! The service was friendly and quick, and the food was tasty! I wouldn't change a thing.

Everyone I know loves this place for a delicious, made-to-order breakfast. It tends to be crowded, especially in the summer, but it's worth the wait, believe me! Friendly, efficient servers & you can eat outside on the porch if you want to bring your pooch! Excellent lunch menu, too!
