Maybe it was just an off day for our waitress but it was bad today!! She seemed distracted, innattentive and inefficient. It took forever to get waited on, she forgot to bring our juice out with breakfast and another gal eventually brought us our check....More

Great breakfast or lunch. Always great specials. Amazing service and owners. There can be a wait, especially on Sundays, but it's worth the wait.

Clearly a local hangout, a friendly place to grab a bite. Lunch was prepared quickly, food was tasty, atmosphere was pleasant. A place for breakfast and lunch only, you can get breakfast all day.

This is without a doubt the best place to eat breakfast or lunch on Johns Island. Good food, great prices, and friendly staff makes this restaurant one of the best in town. Try the grit bowl or Cajun shrimp wrap. You won't be disappointed.

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.
