Does the little things well

Breakfast is a pretty basic meal, so when a place does the little things well it makes a big difference. I had an egg white Denver omelet (bacon added) with hash browns and wheat toast. My hashbrowns were perfect. They weren't fried in a slab, with only the top and bottom crisp, but they were... read more

The first thing you should know is there is no acoustical dampers. The place is really loud. We went there a dozen times but many times we were unwilling to wait. There are not many tables. When we first started going the wait staff was really good but they sure were busy. The food was good and they got it... More

Small little café with limited seating and you may have to wait for few minutes. I can see why, really good food.

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

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.

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
