Sadly, Brevard has very few options for a bacon and eggs breakfast. The Sunrise Cafe is a wonderful find. Walk in and place your order at the counter and when your number is called your meal is ready. Efficient and fast. The staff was friendly and helpful. An omelet made to order was the best my husband has had in... More

I eat breakfast at the Sunrise Cafe every time I visit Brevard. They have an enormous variety with everything from a bagel menu to the most healthy, delicious spring scramble loaded with vegetables. They also have an elaborate coffee menu. The prices are an unbeatable value and the service is always friendly and fast. You simply can't beat this place... More

Very good food but the place runs disorganized. One of the people in our group waited longer than us for her food. Turns out they gave it to someone else even though she had the receipt for checking. Also, all of their self serve coffee ran out. Seems like they would have someone constantly checking it during busy times. Go... More

Ordered some stuff here but didn't like the sausage, it seemed weird and not the kind I'm used to. Since all my food had the sausage in it, thus I didn't like my food.

Without a doubt - the best place for breakfast in Brevard. I have tried many items on the menu and have never been disappointed. The portions are large, the food is hot and fresh, the atmosphere is comfortable. What more can one ask for when starting the day?

Whenever I visit Brevard, I try to make a point to stop for coffee at the Sunrise Cafe. They make a very nice latte! I also really enjoy their bagels. The Asiago bagel with spinach and sun-dries tomato cream cheese is positively delicious! This is definitely the place to go for breakfast before heading out in a hike.

We had a the Basic breakfast of 2 fried eggs/biscuits/ham & side (i chose grits). The eggs were cooked perfectly. I would not get the grits again but that may just be my taste - i like them creamy. These were ground pretty large; they were yellow a little dry.

Check this place out!!!! Charming little diner across from college in a strip mall. Food was prepared fresh. Great tasting food and the staff was friendly. Not your typical menu items, kinda different from the norm. Very tasty.

Restaurant was recommended to us by a local shop owner. Expected local offering of country or mountain style breakfast. Instead, they had a cluttered menu up on the wall that was hard to read and offered crazy options like wraps, items with spinach and other odd ingredients. The place smelled, was cramped, and gave me the impression that it was... More

They have a great breakfast menu with all of the typical goodies, and a few specialties thrown in! Neat place that the locals hang out, and it's children friendly. If you're looking for a place to start your day off right, then this is the place to go.

Thank Jeff T
