This place is a little off the beaten path but once you find it you will keep going back. It has it all...great breakfasts and lunches, reasonable prices, ambiance and the greatest owners, wait staff and cooking crew on the island. You will be like family before your first visit is over.

What a wonderful breakfast we enjoyed at Sun Rise! Lucky to find this space, we felt like locals in this off the beaten path restaurant. We chose to sit inside though with the heat lamps we could've enjoyed the outdoor patio if we had brought warmer clothes! The stuffed French toast was to die for and the crab cake eggs... More

We arrived here around 8:30 for breakfast and were seated at one of the last available outside tables. We were greeted and served coffee promptly........that's always a great thing. I ordered the Quiche (ham/tomato/onion/provolone cheese). The filling of the quiche was flavorful, but the crust was soggy. I tried one bite of it and that was all that I could... More

Definitely a local place as I often heard the servers refer to people by name. We were told about the restaurant from someone who lives on the island. Had a very good breakfast of with their City Ham Eggs Benedict and morning special of Biscuits and Gravy Eggs Benedict. The hollandaise sauce was just right for us. Not to lemony... More

I ate 4 breakfasts last week here. It is a nice place, with indoor and outdoor seating. Some of my meals were great and some really lacking. Their omelets were good, the toast was thick bakery-type. My complaints about the place are that the servers keep their drinks at the end of the counter (right next to me), and a... More

I'm surprised by the good reviews. The food is mediocre. The service is fine. Frozen hash browns, eggs cooked on a too hot grill, and overpriced. A chain restaurant would have better food. I had french toast, 4 small pieces with no syrup. Find another breakfast spot.

This restaurant is off the beaten path, but thanks to TripAdvisor we found it! This is where the locals go...they have an outside (enclosed with heaters) area where pets are invited and the inside is clean and comfy. The food was good and the service amazing. They had plenty of staff and everyone worked together. It's was very busy, but... More

Fast and friendly service. Great Bacon Bloody Mary's and the food is excellent. Ordered the blueberry cream cheese stuffed french toast. Lots of blueberry sauce and very light - wasn't too rich or heavy. Everyone else order various selections from crab benedicts to sausage gravy and eggs.. no one left disappointed - every one was full and happy.

Palmetto Bay Sunrise Cafe is one of our all-time favorites. Their outside dining is dog-friendly and there are usually many well-behaved pooches around. Try the blue plate special, which was a Caprese Eggs Benedict when we were there. Delicious- and the staff makes you feel like you're part of the family. Love it!

Sat outside. Our service was great. Breakfast food, other than terrific hash browns, was just so-so. Coffee was weak and disappointing.
