We enjoy the art work, and the homemade products for sale. The food is always prepared properly, and to the customer's satisfaction. Enjoy the friendliness of staff members.

Good spot to eat in downtown Brooksville, FL. An old building with brick walls and a tin ceiling. Cozy setting, with a nice menu for lunch. Prices are moderate in price....more that McDonald's! Food was good, however could have done better on the cream soup. Staff was very attentive even with the lunch crowd with a large party. Nice place... More

As long as you don't get the mocha, you will love this hometown place. As for the mocha, as soon as I took the first sip, I knew it had artificial sweetener in it--something I spent years getting out of my system. Turns out, the only chocolate/mocha flavoring they had was sugar-free artificial syrup. I actually gave this one back... More

I enjoy going to Rising Sun with friends or by myself. It has a homey atmosphere. The staff is friendly and I never feel rushed. I have had breakfast and lunch there and the food was very good. I especially like the coffee choices hot or cold. It's nice to have a place to go to besides the usual chain... More

Nothing special here, but it is a place for locals to hang out. The food is so-so. the atmosphere is interesting, in an old brick building. Kind of cool. But not worth a destination trip, for sure.

I have been there a number of times and have always gotten an excellent meal. Everything is made from scratch and the evening dinners are creative delights. One of these days I will make it in at lunch time before they sell out of the crab mac and cheese. Staff is always friendly

Went in for Easter dinner and what a great night. A great meal, got to visit with friends and a much welcomed, no rush meal. It gives you time to visit with friends and family. The food was fresh and delicious.

Ambiance embraces old brooksville, food is always fresh. Grilled cheese and clubs sandwiches are the best. They also have bottle beer. Room and tables enough to have a small business meeting.

A great alternative to the standard box restaurants. They re-vamp the menu frequently and work hard to please their customers. They used to have live music on the weekend but too many fuddy-duds complained, so what were they supposed to do? Anyway, the setting has a nice vibe like you are NOT in Brooksville:)

Catherine R, Owner at Rising Sun Bistro and Market, responded to this review

Thank you for the kind review of our bistro. We still have live music on Thursday nights and two to three other weekend nights per month. We are just trying to have some nights without live music for our customers who would prefer a quieter venue. More
