Great food, good atmosphere and service, good price. Not much one can complain with at Rise n Shine. Try any of the short stacks of pancakes or the breakfast sandwich is also very tasty!

Ignored on arrival took too long to get seated. Then too long to order. The special corned beef hash breakfast had potential but fell woefully short. Essentially no service beyond dropping the coffee and the food. Left without seeing the server again.More

We first came for breakfast. I was pleasantly surprised to find so many vegetarian and healthy options. Their grits are some of the best I've ever had. They are not the bleached, processed stuff, but natural, yellow grits. They were amazing!! The omelet was perfectly...More

Decided to have breakfast at this little spot. Walked in, states to wait to be seated, took a few minutes for someone to tell us to take a table. A good selection of breakfast items, the food was wonderful. Would definitely go back.

Had a delicious breakfast here. Pancakes were wonderful ($1.75 extra for 100% maple syrup -- but worth it!). Slow service but we weren't in a big hurry. Would recommend.

Nice little breakfast place. Good service. Loved the Eggs Benedict and hash brown. Eggs cooked perfectly. I had the green version but nice having choices. Worth trying.
