I love coming to Sunrise and ordering the biscuits and gravy. I have it with sourdough toast instead of biscuits, SOS style. They never have a problem making substitutions for dietary or personal preferences. The waitresses are always very welcoming.

Bright little locals spot with great breakfast and lunch options. Traditional takes on your main meals with some really yummy house specialties. Always a wait here so plan ahead.

This is another one of our favorite places to gather on Sunday's after Church with friends. Food is delicious, can accommodate a large group, and the staff is awesome! We've been going there for years.

My husband and I wanted breakfast at noon so we decided to get our eat on here at Sunrise Cafe, Vista. He had a sausage omelette and I had the country breakfast. The food was absolutely delicious!! . The service was amazing and the owner Bobby was there pouring coffee. The atmosphere was very homey and comfortable. Quick service, delicious... More

We have been going here for breakfast for many years now, and always enjoy the service and quality. Almost always a line, but never more than 5 minutes wait. Try it out!!
