Sunshine is my go-to place for breakfast bagel and coffee. This is a very popular spot for locals to congregate over excellent coffee and breakfast.

I ordered 1 egg scrambled with bacon and a bagel with cream cheese. Very good, friendly people. I liked the hometown feel of this place. Great for a hearty breakfast before hiking!

Our family had a hearty and wholesome breakfast here before heading into the Mt. Pisgah National Forrest. Hidden in a little strip mall, this spot will not disappoint.

Great spot! Busy but fast. Had the basic breakfast and some great locally roasted coffee. The Belgium waffle is also a winner. They have smoothies and breakfast burritos/nachos that several people ordered.

Went here many times when I was in Brevard, absolutely loved it. My favourite was the turkey club in a sesame bagel.
