Restaurant came highly recommended on Trip Advisor so we gave it a try. It was ok, not as good as I expected. We sat on a porch area over looking a parking lot. Expected a little more. I had the breakfast burrito. It was good. Coffee was cold as many items are kept in containers out on the patio. Probably... More

Had breakfast here with family Wednesday morning and it was great. I ordered the shrimp hash and it was out of this world. My wife ordered the strata and it was also very good. Definitely a place I would return to!

One of the best places for breakfast you will find anywhere. You must eat outside, weather permitting, to get the full affect. Unique menu, quick and friendly service. The Strata is always very good but this year we decided to also split the French Toast stuffed with blueberries and cream cheese, topped with raspberry sauce. I will never look at... More

Totally different than the other same old breakfast type places. So many options from standard eggs and bacon to creative styles of eggs benedict, quiche, and much more. Great deal on mimosas and if you have to wait to be seated they have an outdoor cash bar.

Nothing fancy, but the food and the staff are spot on. Great if you love the hustle and bustle of a busy breakfast diner.

Sun Rise café is the place to go for Breakfast on the island. Be careful, weekend mornings can be crowded but it is worth the wait. The service is great, the food is delicious. This place is loved by locals and tourists alike.
