Great service, great food. Very busy in the mornings! Breakfast buffet looked good, but we ordered from the menu.

“Breakfast Buffet”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

Really the only time worth going here is on Sunday mornings. While it has decent sandwiches and such, the main draw is the buffet. The buffet features pretty good hash browns, but then what seems to be toaster french fries and waffles. It's filling, and the generally overcrowded space lends a cheery air, but the wait can be VERY long, so if you're impatient, try your luck elsewhere.

“Beware!! No gloves on the cooks!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013 via mobile

We went there for breakfast this morning after leaving the long line at the Breakfast Club. They asked if we wanted to sit at the counter and we agreed so we didn't have to wait. The kitchen is right in front of the counter...thus we lost our appetite. The cooks do not wear gloves! We sat there and watched them wipe their hands on their shirts or a dirty rag then handle the food. It was absolutely disgusting to watch so we left before we got our food. This place could have had amazing food..but we will never know. No way they could pass a health inspection. Beware!

“Decent but nothing to write home about”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

The breakfast you'll find at Sunrise is a traditional diner breakfast. It's good, and not too highly priced. Service was pleasant. My honest opinion though -- if you have the time or if the wait isn't too bad, go across the street to the Breakfast Club. You'll pay maybe a dollar more per entree, but you get a larger portion and the quality goes from good to awesome.
