“Nice food, nice price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2013

You can tell there is a golf course nearby! This must be the unofficial 19th hole :) The Spinach Benedict was delicious with perfectly poached eggs. My husband said the sausage gravy was very good, but the biscuit needs work (I think Rae Rae's spoiled him). I can see how there would be long waits fall through spring, since the place was full at 10:00 a.m. in July. The staff is very efficient and works unflustered even when at full capacity. I'm keeping SonRise Cafe on my list of go-to breakfast places in The Villages.

“Long waits during season on Sunday, but the food is stellar”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2013

I'm going to try off season to see if the service and waits improve. However, the breakfast served was excellent, the location is convenient and the atmosphere is pleasant.

“The Best Breakfasts!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2013

We love this cafe!! We are always welcomed warmly, even when they are busy and there is a waiting line to get in. They do a wonderful job cooking home-cooked breakfasts. We have had yummy omelets there. For this visit, friends of ours got blueberry pancakes. My husband got cherry French toast. I ordered the basic breakfast with eggs over easy, bacon, sourdough toast, and homefries. Everything was delicious. Portions were generous. Our server was very attentive, kind and personable. The prices are so reasonable. Atmosphere is very casual and clean. It is a great way to start your day. Plus this cafe is golf cart accessible.

“Wonderful owners & Fabulous Fresh Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2012

Amazing Breakfasts & Lunches. Specials are always unique {like a Brie, Bacon & Mushroom omelet} and done perfectly. Service is cheerful and the restaurant is very clean. When you ask for something done a certain way, {like "double-toasted dry/crunchy English muffin} they get it 'right' - it made the Eggs Benedict rock - and they have a sausage Benedict that is fun!
