My wife and I went there for breakfast a couple of months ago. They have a good selection of choices for breakfast. The service was excellent and the food plentiful. I think they're open for lunch also but not dinner. Check their web site to be sure. Prices were very reasonable. Not the cheapest but not very expensive either. Good... More

This is another one of our favorite places to gather on Sunday's after Church with friends. Food is delicious, can accommodate a large group, and the staff is awesome! We've been going there for years.

We have been going here for breakfast for many years now, and always enjoy the service and quality. Almost always a line, but never more than 5 minutes wait. Try it out!!

This is a well-established locals restaurant that is off the beaten path but worth the drive! I live across town from the Sunrise Cafe but experience anticipation on my commute! I LOVE the food here! I admit it, I always order the same thing but I have tried the food from others. The Huevos Rancheros is amazing! The Ranchero sauce... More

One bite of any of their breakfast or lunch items, and you'll see why this place is so popular. Great tasting food at reasonable prices, bring the locals back time and again. You'll feel like a local on your first visit when owner, Bobby, or his son, Cory, greet you at the door! Open for breakfast and lunch only, with... More

A few new items have been added, but the basic menu has never changed and is, and has always been, excellent. Several of the servers have been... More

Bobby Jones and his family have made Sunrise Cafe the place to gather for breakfast! Tasty omelettes and egg plates, served quickly with a smile. Generous sandwiches and salads at lunchtime served with a side of greetings. Very reasonable prices. They have the friendly touch and are also strong supporters of community events - Sunrise Cafe is a GEM in... More
