Hard to imagine a better way to start the day with good coffee and a "large" breakfast sandwich - "large" is the only size. The ham and egg sandwich comes with heaps of ham slices - you would expect to pay several dollars more just for the ham. Very friendly staff, everything hand-crafted - really tempted to try their gyros... More

This is the best place to go for breakfast! Definitely a locals favorite. The food comes out super fast and the service is great. The best omelet at the beach!

Great food and service. Always fresh food, reasonable prices, and very pleasant surroundings. Not fancy, just good.

Sunrise Restaurant was only one block from our Beach front hotel. A very convenient location. We returned each morning for breakfast. A popular restaurant with locals & tourist alike. The food was excellent and the staff was super efficient & fast. I highly recommend Sunrise Restaurant in Dewey Beach, DE.

The place apprears to be very popular among tourists and locals alike. The food was good and parking is also convenient. The decor and the likes unfortunately are dated and the service wasn't as chamring as we were hoping for.

What a surprise this place was - the best omelet I've ever had, a steak & cheese omelet cooked perfectly. Great service, fast service, average prices for a lot of food. Not the most beautiful of places, but if you enjoy good food, this is your place.

Helpings were big. Prices were a little high but to be expected at the beach. Service was very good.

Looking at this place, you'd expect a reasonably priced, if not cheap breakfast. Don't be deceived. Despite the lack of decor and very basic furniture, their prices were more in line with a 4 star establishment. The food was fine, nothing special. The service was good. Most annoyingly they had the radio blasting with an opinionated, right wing talking head.... More

We were staying just down the street from the Sunrise Restaurant (Atlantic View Hotel) and walked over to grab lunch at the Sunrise and bring it back to the room. The portions were INCREDIBLE! The burger was gigantic, and the gyro was huge! We did lunch twice, and were not disappointed either time. The price is very reasonable for the... More
