Sunrise Bistro is consistently good and I love it's casual, laid back feel. The staff is always friendly and helpful too. I've only had their breakfast and I must say their tomato melt is the way to go! If you didn't know it, they make their own bagels and they are so good! Add a fried egg and/or bacon to... More

When you see the outside you question yourself as to why you are stopping here. It is mostly locals who know where to go. Breakfast and lunch are wonderful. Food is served hot and the service is timely and friendly. Fresh homemade bread, large cookies, omelets and salads are served daily.

Primarily a breakfast place, they server breakfast all day. The menu also offers pizza and sandwiches for lunch I have only eaten breakfast here but I am sure the rest of their food is good also. I can only recommend for breakfast but it is the best place that I found on John;s island for breakfast.

We are Johns Island locals and regulars. There is always a wait (not long but definitely worth it). When our family comes from out of town they always look forward to our weekend brunch with Jessica and her staff!!!!

Had breakfast here, and was very impressed. From the outside this place isn't very appealing, but with great menu options and a coffee bar, you will quickly disregard the exterior appearance! Staff is very nice and helpful, will definitely be returning!

Arrived just prior to lunch. I had selected a chicken Caesar and my colleague went all in for breakfast. Shortly after taking my order, our server returned to advise "the Chef wasn't happy with the chicken and decided not to serve it". I thought this was great! I mean, they could've just served me a chicken Caesar and carried on.... More

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.

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.
