We tried the Cafe from reading other reviews and, the place is GREAT. Two of us had the shrimp hash from a recommendation from our server (sorry can't remember her name) and she was right. It was different and fabulous. Biscuits and gravy (half order), county ham Benedict (half order) and an omelet rounded out the group. All the servers... More

Great food! Awesome service! Went on Valentine's day around noon, there was a bit of a wait, but it was well worth it. I got the breakfast burrito and it was out of this world, their hashbrowns are amazing. My husband got the grilled chicken sandwich which he said was awesome, the other couple with us got the bacon cheeseburger... More

This is our second time here. We love this place. It is our favorite breakfast/brunch on the island. Both times we had the french toast, and crab cake eggs benedict. Boh our favorites. Staff is friendly and food is good. Not sure what else you need

We ate twice at this delightful small cafe during our recent time in Hilton Head. I think they have the BEST service we have ever had in any restaurant anywhere - very friendly and constantly checking to see if you need anything. The food is basic but very good - breakfast/brunch fare. My wife had the crab cake eggs benedict... More

The entire staff at Sun Rise Cafe is friendly, happy, and helpful. I don't know who selects and trains the staff, but they appear to work together seamlessly. They welcomed us every time we went, and it was our "go to" place for breakfast. The menu is varied, and daily specials are also offered. Sunday seems to be the busiest... More

We ate breakfast here and the food was good. The service was good. It is definitely a place that alot of locals are regulars. My biggest complaint was that it was too expensive. I could have eaten at alot of other places for half the cost of this place.
