We were there over the Labor Day weekend as this is our favorite breakfast place in Hilton Head. The experience was poor for the first time ever and I wish we had chosen not too wait in the long queue which is usual here.
Our previous visits have always been so good that it is a shame to see this happening to such a popular and great breakfast venue. It was too busy, too crowded and the food suffered as a result. Hash browns were not cooked and neither was the toast. Such a shame Sunrise :(

We decided to go here for brunch based on the reviews. In summary, the service was poor, and the food lacking. I have to admit that the place was busy since it was Labor Day. We waited about 25 minutes to get seated which was OK. They took our order right away but then we waited and waited and waited. We finally got our food about an hour after we ordered. Everyone around us waited just as long except for 2 woman who must have known someone since they were seated way after us and were served immediately. When our food finally came, my omelet was poor at best and my wife's eggs benedict was terrible. While we were sitting there, the leg of the chair that a man was sitting on behind us broke and he almost ended up on the floor. We won't be back!! If you want a great place for breakfast/brunch try Stacks.

Sun Rise Cafe is on our "must visit" list when we vacation in Hilton Head. It's a busy, friendly place with inside and outside seating - bring your dog if you'll be eating on the patio! Breakfast choices are varied and helpings are plentiful, prices are reasonable. Can't recommend it highly enough.

Honest food and good service makes this place a popular destination in Hilton Head. The quiche with hash browns was really good and the coffee was flowing hot and fresh. A great way to start the day.

My husband actually wanted to go back again the next morning! He ate something he would normally never try (some sort of egg strata) and still liked it. My side of fruit had at least 7 different fruits in it. My quiche was very good (quality ingredients and taste), my son's french toast was good. The service was good, it is a small, unassuming place right by the boat docks in a strip mall. We popped down for a walk afterward to watch the boats docking (around noon by this time) and were surprised by all the dolphins in the water waiting for the boats to throw them left over fish. It was fun! - Note for people using GPS to find it - don't go over the bridge or you have missed it !!
