Hidden treat

If you want a really good breakfast from a local's cafe, this is the place. Friendly, good food, and good service. Super buttermilk pancakes - order only 1 or 2 because you can't eat the full stack! When near Bountiful, don't miss Sunshine.

The food is excellent. I had a Greek omelet with great hash browns in this too small diner but too many screaming kids made it tough to enjoy. Had part of a cinnamon roll that appeared to be homemade and served hot that was great too. I know a restaurant can't control its clientele but, I'll be reluctant to go... More

Locally owned, always busy, and good food. Sometimes that is all you need to say about a breakfast joint. Biscuits & Gravy are great, so are the sunshine potatoes.

My favorite dish is the Garden Classic, fresh vegetables, hash browns, eggs and salsa. Be prepared to wait for a table, the small cafe is always packed, but well worth the wait.

Nice greasy spoon with superb breakfast. Saturday and Sunday mornings are packed so expect a wait. Small cafe with home town feel.

This is one of those special places you keep coming back to while hoping that it never changes. Janet's Sunshine Cafe is tucked into the corner of an unimposing strip mall as if it's hiding there for friends and locals. They serve FRESH lunch and breakfast only, cooked to order in sight of the 10 tables, surrounded by signs and... More

This is one of the first restaurants we ate at when we moved to North Salt Lake and we absolutely love it! Their breakfasts are amazing. The food portions are large, delicious and unique. I always order the “Garden Scramble,” which is a huge platter of potatoes, broccoli, eggs, onions, etc. It is a small, local spot so it is... More

We have eaten hear a few times and the food is really good. it's a small restaurant so I would suggest avoiding it during peak hours especially on Saturday morning.You will be waiting a half hour for a table and another 45 mins to get your food..and that's if there isn't any take out orders ahead of yours...just go at...

I've eaten here several times with friends and it's a great place to go for a good omelet, stack of pancakes, lunch sandwich, chicken fried steak or other American cuisine. One of my favorite cafes.

The best eggs benedict I've ever had-larger than normal english muffin, bacon, avocado, tomato, fabulous hollandais-but only on Saturdays. Friday's lunch special is too yummy to tell the world about, and we love the whole wheat pancake with granola. Everything is delicious!
