What a fantastic menu and great preparation. They were packed the Saturday morning we chose to dine there, but there was a huge crowd going skiing, so we weren't surprised. 15-20 minute wait to be seated was well worth it. Service was great and the menu variety was really satisfying. I enjoyed the salmon benedict with spinich and a side of biscuit and gravy. While my eggs were poached a bit harder than I personally like, they were still soft and probably cooked to the general public's liking...ask for them softer if you wish, my son did and they were perfect for his dish.

There is Chorizo benedict, and plethora of other breakfast options depending upon your mood and taste. The hostess was great about getting us started with drinks while we waited for our waitress, and even as busy as they were our food came out in a timely fashion.

This is clearly a local place with several long time locals highlighted on photos at the front of the store, parked right next to the colored placemats by kids of all ages. I'd call this a can't miss destination if you're in Summit County.

Love the Sunshine cafe! Food is great and love the atmosphere with all the art on the wall. Ham and cheese with egg sandwich for breakfast rocks!

Arrived for late breakfast at 10 am or so, Jan 2014.
No wait. Enjoyed the cream cheese stuffed french toast, covered in raspberry sauce. Prompt service kept my coffee full to the brim, a huge plus. Restaurant appeared clean, bathrooms were clean and stocked, no odors or mess. Open, bright environment. True to other reviews, the Cafe is located in a strip mall, but so is just about every business in Silverthorne. Seasoned travelers know excellent eateries are located in all sorts of buildings. Price was very reasonable.
Not 5 stars as I only ate there once. Consistency is a crucial component of a 5 star joint.

The food was awesome. The menu prices seemed a little high but when we saw the food, we soon realized we had found a great place to visit on out annual trip to CO.
