This place doesn't look that exciting from the street, but the food is really good. It was a convenient stop on the way back from the distillery/winery.

This place always has great food and great service. Dinner menu is very good but you just can't compete with their breakfast/brunch menu. Easy to get a table in the evening, always expect a little wait in the morning. However, well worth the wait !

We ate here, by chance, as we were leaving the beach. Breakfast was outstanding. I had BBQ shrimp and grits ($10.95). They were better than some I had at more expensive restaurants. Almost all menu items were under $10. Really good coffee....my fave was Jamaica me crazy.

Had a great lunch at Sunrise Bistro. Fast friendly service, very clean. The grouper basket really hit the spot, perfectly prepared. This is my go to lunch spot on John's Island.

While I don't do it often, I'm all about brunch. While this place is out of the way in terms of being close to the major Charleston area, it is worth the drive especially if you have plans to be on Johns Island. It could be described lovingly as a "hole in the wall" with nothing flashy about the physical... More

By far, the best breakfast on Johns Island! I LOVE the Texas Stacker: cheesy sunny eggs on toast with grits and bacon. Sounds like a crazy combination but it is delicious! It is busy on the weekends, so you may have to wait for a table, but it is worth it! They have delicious coffee, too. My daughters love the... More

Lovely little bistro with warm service and delicious food! The bread on the veggie sandwich was perfect, and the potato salad a nice accompaniment.
