Since opening in 2009, Sunrise has been satisfying hungry passers-by with simple, comforting food made with care and without pretension - like mom might make. There are favorites for breakfast (until 11:30 a.M.) Like french toast, enchiladas rancheros, homemade bagels, open-faced omelets, and breakfast pizzas. If you find yourself near this corner of Johns Island, stop in - you'll leave well-fed.

Every time I need to meet someone for lunch in my area, I choose The Sunrise Bistro. The food is consistently good, the service is fast and is reasonable. There is nothing fancy about the place; but you feel comfy and the brownies are to die for!

We decided to try this place out for a late breakfast just to try something different while vacationing. No regrets! This place was awesome. I had the Hungry Howie and my boyfriend had the western omelette. The only minor issue is like what some other reviews stated, the grits really do have a bit too much pepper. But other than... More

...no need to bother your wait staff, you can get your own coffee. no wait time on the coffee end. perfect! Got the sunrise sampler-- the eggs were really salty and the grits a lot more pepper corn than expected, it was tolerable but not ....expected especially for people who can't tolerate some spice. Also, my party had the hungry... More

We were seated at the bar due to the place being packed on a Sunday morning. Pepper jack grits were great, portions good. Service was friendly.

We stopped in after the 1/2 marathon on Kiawah for a well earned breakfast on our way back to Mount Pleasant. The help yourself coffee bar was genius and the place had a great home cooking feel, but the grits bowl was a truly hallelujah moment! Best I have had along with yummy seasoned home fry potatoes.

Very popular spot for breakfast on Johns Island . My meal was unremarkable. Not bad not great just average. The egg omelette was very thin. Coffee which is self serve was decent. I remember the bread was the best part of my meal. My friend who suggested we eat here loves the omelettes.

Great place for breakfast on John's Island! Kind of a small place, so you might have to wait on the weekends. They have some good specialty items. Friendly waitress, fair prices and clean inside.
