I recently visited this location with friends. Even though I had lived in Lafayette a few years ago, I had never been here. I will go there a lot in the future. I had the French toast and corn beef hash. Excellent! Great coffee and...More

Best sausage gravy I've ever had! Real family environment and food like grandma used to make! Best coffee in town! My favorite is the half sunrise with gravy on top. Can't get any better! They sure know how to keep your coffee cup full!

For toast and two eggs sunny side-up, the meal and hot coffee refills were welcome reminders of the civility of going out for a sit down breakfast on weekday morning.

Read mixed reviews, but thought I would give it a try. Very casual-self seating. The building is larger than it appears upon entering (walk towards the lunch counter & there is another room with additional seating to the left, but did not go back there)....More

Sunrise Diner is located in downtown Lafayette, two blocks from the courthouse square. It’s been on this corner for decades, is popular with locals, and doesn’t try to be trendy. You enter the “Memory Lane Room” featuring a cluttered collection of old cameras, historic pictures...More
