Popped into Sunrise to grab breakfast to go. Really cool place and I was greeted by a super friendly staff. I ordered the breakfast burrito which was amazing as was the Greek salad my wife enjoyed. We will definitely return.

Had lunch there again today and had their BLT? With the homemade bread it was all one could expect. There were several specials and all the regular sandwiches. I don't know why I keep trying other places, when I know this is the Best.

I had the crab omelet which was a special. Very good! My wife had the veggie omelet which was equally enjoyable. Very fresh ingredients and lots of flavor. The Elvis bread pudding was slap-yo-mamma good! Very trendy place!

We'd been years before and didn't recall a good experience so hadn't gone back until we were trying to find somewhere to have a relaxing breakfast on Johns Island and couldn't. We decided to take a chance. It was a surprisingly very good experience. Staff...More

I love it when they have awesome daily specials! The main menu doesn't change often, but the things they offer are pretty good. It would be nice for some more healthy options besides the 2 salads. The service is great. Will be back.

A nice little breakfast and lunch place on John's Island. The omelets are all flat country style. Try the breakfast pizza. It's an omelet served on top of bread made in house with a thin layer of sausage gravy instead of tomato sauce. Delicious.

Since opening in 2009, Sunrise has been satisfying hungry passers-by with simple, comforting food made with care and without pretension - like mom might make. There are favorites for breakfast (until 11:30 a.M.) Like french toast, enchiladas rancheros, homemade bagels, open-faced omelets, and breakfast pizzas. If you find yourself near this corner of Johns Island, stop in - you'll leave well-fed.
