The sunrise bistro is a great casual breakfast place. The food was quick and very fresh. The coffee area you serve yourself which was a nice touch.

My uncle has special needs and is so well provided for here. We so enjoy the pizza and how the staff takes such great care of us. The burgers are very good too.

I've eaten here many times for breakfast. The staff are bright and cheerful early in the morning and the food is very good, hot, and ample. It is of clean and simple decor. The menu has a large and clever array of omelets that are all good. You never get bored .

Busy busy place. We had a short wait for a table on a Saturday morning. The smoked salmon bagel had lots of cream cheese and a perfect amount of salmon and onion and capers. The omelets are open faced with plenty of topping. The herb bread was the star of the meal. Would like to come back and have lunch.... More

We go to Sunrise Bistro a couple of times a month. We love the corn beef and hash with bagel. The portions are large and the food is very fresh. Go early as it is always busy and doesn't seem to slow down till closing.

My husband and I stumbled upon this cafe after a failed lunchtime search for Mexican food. It was our very good fortune that the local Tex-Mex cafe was closed, because this little cafe knocked our socks off! Don't be fooled by the unpretentious, end-unit-of-a corner-strip-mall location; the casual atmosphere simply does not detract from the exceptional quality of the food... More

I had the shrimp and grits. It was so fresh and delicious local shrimp. Probably my favorite meal the entire weekend. Great wait staff!

Ordered a bagel to go and it took 20 minutes. The waitresses ignored it sitting on the counter and I had to ask for it. The everything bagel with scallion cream cheese was yummy. The next time I called in my order so I wouldn't have to wait. I was told 10 minutes. It wasn't ready when I got there,... More

It is close to where we live and it's a so so place to eat. We went once. I'd rather go to IHOP or somewhere else

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.
