Sunshine Café is a "Go-To" locals breakfast/Lunch destination. It's also very popular with the skier crowd for a "grab & go" breakfast burrito or sandwich. It's conveniently just off I-70 in the same plaza with Office Max. You won't be disappointed.

If you are in Silverthorne, this café is a "must." The service is fantastic and friendly, and the food is great! I highly recommend the vegetarian breakfast burrito. The green chili sauce is savory and delicious. What a wonderful way to start the day! The hash browns were cooked to perfection. I ate there twice while in the area and... More

Stayed in the hotel with an "6 item breakfast", stumbled upon this place on my way to McDonalds. Great choice. Open at 7 am, friendly staff and pleasant atmosphere. Great breakfast menu. Beware... on Saturday line of approx. 50 people waiting for door to open. Went to Md.

We all loved our choices. I had the 'Skiers sandwich' (or something like that). It was so yummy and the toasted bread was magical; So crunchy and buttery. Our... More

I wish we could have eaten here more than once, but once was definitely enough to know that this is hands down the place to go for breakfast when you are in Silverthorne. The service is the best, our drinks were always full and our food was brought out within a reasonable amount of time for being made to order!... More

We visited this restaurant with family this morning and it was really good. It is a nice relaxed place. I really recommend an entree called the Dillon Dam with poached eggs, ham and avocado and cheese sauce. The hash browns were good too. I did not order one but the big cinnamon rolls looked sinfully delicious. All the breakfast entrees... More

We never missing eating at Sunshine Cafe when we're in town for our annual ski trip. We've been visiting the area for years and have never been disappointed! It's a popular place, so prepare for a short wait. But it will absolutely be worth the wait! The food is normally fast and delicious! And the service is top notch!!! Cindy... More
