LOVE their southern style cooking ordered to go!

This little dive has been a gem to find but many others have discovered it as well. Janet will cook how YOU want it using only the freshest ingredients. We call in our orders as the place tends to get crowded very quickly with limited space. Our "go-to" breakfast is her Whole Wheat pancake with... read more

Sunshine Cafe is a small diner that serves breakfast and lunch (no dinner). We come here almost exclusively for breakfast, which is very good. Nice pancakes and they will fix your eggs in any number and by any method you can dream up.

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

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 cooked evenly, salted nicely, and... 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.
