Great, fast place to eat breakfast, a place for locals. Service was good, food was good, some of the coffee cups were cracked (it's self serve coffee service). Good parking.

Perfect breakfast spot for folks visiting Seabrook or Kiawah Island. (and for anyone else in the vicinity!) Typical breakfast fare (eggs, omelets, etc.) but served in a very southern style - friendly, but not fancy. Once seated, get up and get your own coffee with...More

Since opening in 2009, Sunrise has been satisfying hungry passers-by with simple, comforting food made with care and without pretension - like mom might make. There are favorites for breakfast (until 11:30 a.M.) Like french toast, enchiladas rancheros, homemade bagels, open-faced omelets, and breakfast pizzas. If you find yourself near this corner of Johns Island, stop in - you'll leave well-fed.
