The breakfasts and lunches are great. I've liked everything I've eaten. Home fries are especially good. It can get a bit slow, but they are overwhelmed with people sometimes.

Outstanding!!! Hidden behind a tire store with indoor and outdoor seating. Mother's Day was extremely busy but service was prompt, friendly and fantastic. We were a party of six and were the first table to be set and served outside. I had the omelette special and it was light and fluffy with great fillings. Fantastic value. Would be a great... More

We visited on Mother's Day. Despite the place being crowded, the staff was warm, cheerful and attentive. The food was delicious (this is no ordinary diner) and inventive. The corned beef hash was excellent. Plus, there were flowers for all the mothers. Can't say enough good things.

Lucky for us we were nearby and found this gem after checking Yelp. Very easy to miss. It is behind a tire shop and next to a car wash, tiny place in the back. A few tables inside and less tables outside. Luckily a table had just opened up when we arrived. All the staff was incredibly friendly. I had... More

Have been going to Rise N Shine for about five years now. The food more often than not is excellent. I have seen a lot of changes in the place over the past five year - some things for the better and others not so much. It can be VERY NOISY due to its size and the tv and music.... More

I just searched for breakfast places near my hotel, and wanted to skip Denny's. I'm so glad I made the right choice! The black forest pancakes were amazing, and the pancakes themselves were real, not boxed! Coffee was great, bacon was great, eggs were cooked perfectly. My meal ended up being a la carte because a combo of my items... More

Went there yesterday and it did NOT disappoint! Had an egg-white omelette (they make their own egg beaters/white mixture) and it was delicious! Let's talk about the home fries... WOW. They were perfect!!! Second best home fries in Syracuse. (ask me where the best in Syracuse are if you're curious!!!) But their home fries were DELICIOUS! I've been to Rise... More

Wow! First time customers and impressed from beginning to end. Fantastic menu including a separate pancake menu. Service was outstanding and food was great. The home fries were stellar. Pancakes as big as dinner plates. Wished I lived closer as I would be here alot.
