“Local's Favorite”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2012

We were shopping in Silverthorne, and asked a sales clerk for a recommendation for lunch - the name "Sunshine Cafe " practically flew out of her mouth!

This bright, cheerful, and sometimes 'noisy' eatery seems to be every local's favorite. The menu features many 'Tex-Mex' dishes (which I have since sampled), along with plenty of standards. Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, you're bound to meet someone you know in there!

Avoid prime times to avoid a small wait for a table. The portions are good size, and can tend to be a bit pricy.

“YUMMY!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2012

We were driving through Silverthorne on our way home, looking for a place to have breakfast, and just happened to see the Sunshine Cafe. Obviously a popular breakfast spot, there was a waiting list of about 15 minutes or so. It was worth the wait! I had the special of the morning which was stuffed french toast with raspberry sauce which was delicious, and a side of perfectly cooked bacon - not the easiest thing to get in restaurants I've found! Hubby had something like a benedict - eggs and ham on english muffin with cheese sauce and avocado slices, served with hash browns. It looked very good and he enjoyed it. Service was pleasant and fairly quick.
