We used to live in Yellow Springs and dined at the Sunrise frequently. On a recent visit we dined at the sunrise. The place was surprisingly empty and we were seated right away. The menu is very healthy-oriented and there appears to be a farm-to-table focus. We ordered two vegetarian items and they were mostly good, but I think the... More

The Good: variety, amazing decor, good value, great service, unique, great tastes The Bad: small and a little noisy This is a super mid range hipsterish place. The parking is on the street. The exterior of the place looks slightly downscale and funky. The interior uses every square inch for painting, cooking, serving and eating. All of the walls and... More

Had the Greek omelet and the best cup of decaf coffee I've ever had. I recently had to change to decaf and have found it to be a real let down, the organic coffee here was amazing! The menu is expansive, yet not overwhelming. The wait staff are attentive and friendly, with the exception of one waitress. I stopped in... More

We dined here recently and it was as good as ever. I love the fact that there are many vegetarian and vegan items that are great and make choosing tough. I always wind end eating the hummus enchiladas and they are wonderful and have a nice spicy sauce on top. They come with rice and NO cheese, making it vegan.... More

A small, very popular restaurant that is worth any wait in which you may have for a table! Using fresh, locally sourced ingredients, they truly know how to combine flavors without "overdoing" it. Plenty of options for all dietary needs. I strongly recommend this restaurant!

The Sunrise often has interesting specials on their menu and seems to have some vegan and always vegetarian options. Their breads are homemade but not great. I always ask lots of questions about how items are prepared and they are good at answering or asking in the kitchen. Honestly, we would eat here more often if the seats were more... More
