We went to Brooksville for the day and had lunch at one of Brooksville hidden gem. The place was very big and quaint. Loved the puns on the blackboard behind the bar. The food we had was exceptional and delicious. We will be back to try other menu items and other specialty drinks.

The atmosphere is pleasant in this historic neighborhood, complete with Civil War Memorial Mural around the corner. The locally produced goods offered in the small market is a nice addition, supporting other local small businesses.The kitchen could up their game in terms of the flavor and preparation of the food. The Bistro Burger I had was dry and non-exciting, as... More

Always a pleasure to done here with the current owners. They are friendly and inviting. The food is super fresh and reasonably priced. The building is beautiful with intricate ceiling tiles and exposed brick walls. Love that they have entertainment on the weekends and that they offer beer and wine.

I used to visit Rising Sun for breakfast each morning when I worked in downtown Brooksville. Their croissants and café con leche are THE BEST! Now I visit each time I go to Patricia's boutique for my wedding dress fittings. My bridesmaids and I love the fresh, delicious salads and wraps in a clean, chic, modern, artistic space. 5*

As old owners of another Local cafe we support great local food. The Rising Sun is our favorite Brooksville lunch spot. Though we no longer live in the area we support this place whenever we come back to town.

We enjoy the art work, and the homemade products for sale. The food is always prepared properly, and to the customer's satisfaction. Enjoy the friendliness of staff members.

Good spot to eat in downtown Brooksville, FL. An old building with brick walls and a tin ceiling. Cozy setting, with a nice menu for lunch. Prices are moderate in price....more that McDonald's! Food was good, however could have done better on the cream soup. Staff was very attentive even with the lunch crowd with a large party. Nice place... More

As long as you don't get the mocha, you will love this hometown place. As for the mocha, as soon as I took the first sip, I knew it had artificial sweetener in it--something I spent years getting out of my system. Turns out, the only chocolate/mocha flavoring they had was sugar-free artificial syrup. I actually gave this one back... More

I enjoy going to Rising Sun with friends or by myself. It has a homey atmosphere. The staff is friendly and I never feel rushed. I have had breakfast and lunch there and the food was very good. I especially like the coffee choices hot or cold. It's nice to have a place to go to besides the usual chain... More

Nothing special here, but it is a place for locals to hang out. The food is so-so. the atmosphere is interesting, in an old brick building. Kind of cool. But not worth a destination trip, for sure.

Thank IonaSelkie

Casual Dining in a historic building. Dinner menu changes frequently as Chef adds unique recipes. Oven roasted flatbreads with a different twist. Dinner served Thursday Friday and Saturday nights. Live music during dinner. A good selection of craft beers and wines.
