On most mornings expect to wait. So bring company to chat with or spend some time reading the daily Summit News (free in a machine out front of the restaurant). Once seated, the service is outstanding which, for me, includes 4 or 5 cups of coffee. The menu offers a bit of everything but I am sharing a big shout... More

Breakfast is hearty, service friendly and a favorite spot for locals. A very complete menu for all tastes. Only caution is that it is rather expensive.....but then everything is in Summit County!

My family and I came here for breakfast on a Saturday morning. After a short wait, we were seated. The hostess immediately took our drink orders, which impressed me. Our server, who showed up shortly after our drinks arrived, was very friendly. The food was good, typical breakfast items, and I wish we had stayed in town longer because of... More

Newly redecorated, but quality of food stays the same! Their trout, egg, and hashbrown breakfast is consistently excellent. Wait staff is great. We just keep coming back.

Happened upon this restaurant by accident as we needed a laundromat and it is in the same development as one. We left feeling satisfied. The food was excellent with stuffed omelets and crisp hashbrowns. The service was cheerful and prompt. No wonder this unassuming cafe is ranked #1. We will return.

The food was great and so was the service. Best service we have had all week. We particularly enjoyed the enchiladas and eggs. The benedict was great. All of the service staff were friendly and helpful. A great destination for breakfast or lunch. The homemade in the bottle hot sauce was so good a bought a bottle to take home.

Longtime favorite of locals and tourists. Recently remodeled and expanded in June 2016 with the same delicious menu. They do have lunch items, too. Sunshine Cafe is a very pleasant place to enjoy breakfast but it is busy on the weekends especially in the high summer and winter ski seasons so you may have a short wait. Service is prompt... More

My husband had the eggs benedict & I had the classic breakfast (eggs, bacon, hash browns & toast). Both were excellent! The place was very busy when we arrived at about 9:45 on a Monday and even busier when we left. The service was slightly slow but they were very pleasant and doing as well as they could. Lots of...

There's pics of locals hanging in the walls and even though we were from out of town they treated us like family. I had the chorizo be idiot and it was bangin!! It had... More

We ordered a pretty large meal, omelettes and enchiladas and more. The food came out extremely quickly. Usually when something is that fast the food is not as good, but it was delicious! One of the best omelettes I've had in a while. The people were very nice and helpful and accommodated for our every need. I would recommend it!
