Our family had a hearty and wholesome breakfast here before heading into the Mt. Pisgah National Forrest. Hidden in a little strip mall, this spot will not disappoint.

Great spot! Busy but fast. Had the basic breakfast and some great locally roasted coffee. The Belgium waffle is also a winner. They have smoothies and breakfast burritos/nachos that several people ordered.

Went here many times when I was in Brevard, absolutely loved it. My favourite was the turkey club in a sesame bagel.

Best breakfast in town. I also love the chicken salad on toast ( homemade bread) I don't know if I have had anything that I did not like. The trio salad is also good if you are eating healthy . This place is a good place to have meals with friends .

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.

Thank Jen J
