We've walked by it for years and finally decided to try it. My family's omelets were good, but my pancakes were very odd in taste and texture. I didn't know you could ruin pancakes. Prices were a little expensive for what you got.

Plenty of breakfast comfort food choices and reasonably-priced for someplace a block from the beach.

Very casual with good food and fast service. Prices were a bit high for what we got, eating/drinking out of plastic and the atmosphere, but we assume prices are increased for the summer. Omelette portion sizes are quite large, other portion sizes were average. Large list of basic and interesting omelette options - rest of the menu has standard breakfast... More

Our breakfast was served quickly and was delicious. My spinach omelet was so large I had to bring it home and have it for another day. Our server was sweet and attempted to meet all of our needs. Prices were reasonable for the portions served.

Great place if you are looking for fast service and good food. The setting is basic and unpretentious - it's more of a diner type setting. The breakfast sandwich is excellent and my partner raved on about the sausage gravy. The omelets are huge!

We went there for coffee in the morning because our hotel didn't serve coffee until 8am. We sat down, got a menu and our jaw dropped! 2 eggs were $7!! And a teacup of coffee was $2.50!! If you're someone who doesn't care about your money then by all means eat here as I'm not criticizing the food only prices.... More

It's not much to look at, it is wicked small with 9 parking spots but will be packed with locals and tourist the entire time you are there. It's a seat yourself joint with 4 tables outside and some more inside- inside is loud- outside is prime, tourist traffic, people watching and that nice breeze that blows in Dewey. The... More

This is a very unassuming little restaurant. The hostess/waitress was very pleasant and service was fast. We placed our order had our food within about 5 minutes. It was definitely home style cooking and portions were large enough for a hefty appetite such as mine. There were a lot of locals eating there...always a good sign in my book. Good... More

The normal breakfast will feed three truck drivers. If you order a side ... well prepare to skip lunch and dinner. These are basic omelets with toast and potatoes. The lady at the window is so warm and inviting you want to order everything and when you do, bring the hotel. Natives appear in the line from their homes. The... More

The Sunrise offers classic diner food in Dewey. Open for breakfast and lunch, this is a very casual eatery. Don't miss the Gyro omelette! There is limited outdoor seating which is great if you bring your dog. The wait-staff will even bring a fresh bowl of water for your pooch!
