Breakfast was hot and fresh! Service was exceptional! Will go again and again. Owner is great and greets with a big smile! From scratch specials. Small but quaint, 10 am during the week was perfect timing! Really enjoyed the place.

Tell you what... I didn't really love the place, but it was kind of quaint, with a small # of tables, and they pride themselves on home-cooking style food. Many of the reviews you'll read include mention of Linda, the owner, host of hostesses. While...More

You always find the best gems by visiting Mom & Pop places. The Sunshine Cafe is a case in point. The breakfasts are large, yummy, satisfying and affordable. The service is extremely friendly. You almost feel like a family member by the time you leave....More
