Love dining at Sunshine. It’s the best kept secret in the area close to our VRBO. Had the grilled chicken tostada salad for the second year in a row. By far the best fresh salad I’ve had in PS. It’s huge.

So glad for outdoor seating. Service was quick and low traffic on street. Good breakfast spot - nothing fancy. Good portions. Try the grilled jalapeno in soy sauce. Chorizo burrito and omelette were both delicious..

Our Red Hat group of 30 women met for brunch. A buffet was offered to us for $10 a person. They served us one scoop of scrambled eggs, one strip of bacon,1 sausage link and scoop of potatoes. Most of us were low carbing and...asked for fruit instead of the potatoes. We had to pay an additional $2. When everyone ate, some tried to go back for another strip of bacon and were told they were saving it for bacon bits. No seconds were given and portions were so small we were all still hungry. Will never go backMore

We've visited Sunshine Cafe for years now, mostly for breakfast. We gave their dinner a try the other week and really enjoyed it. Our server was so friendly and the variety of patrons made it cozy. I had the beef stroganoff, others had the meatloaf...and one had lamb shank. We all enjoyed our meals...great salads, too!More

Fantastic!!!! Took a wrong turn and found a diamond in the rough. Had the hot pastrami sandwich and a tostada salad. Both were delicious and plentiful, served promptly and for a very fair price. Courteous staff and a reason to return. J and M from...Iowa.More

We visited Sunshine Cafe during our visit in Cathedral City. Excellent service and food. The breakfast was amazing.

The host was friendly. Didn’t mind waiting for a table. Charming and homey atmosphere. Even saw an aging and friendly celebrity there. However, our waitress abandoned us. After waiting for pancakes and bacon for about 45 mins with no acknowledgment of a delay or letting...us know the kitchen was backed up, we left without getting our food. Not trying to be bitchy, but there was a major gap in service. If you have a forever amount of time to wait for food, this might be your place. It did not work for us.More
