Some good breakfast choices. Polenta is a plus. Prices a bit high. Coffee is routinely bad. Service is often forgetful: no check, no menu, oops, forgot your toast. Yet, you can get a good sandwhich or breakfast. Just keep on your toes. Management needs a wke up call.

Sunrise, as its name implies, serves food appropriate for breakfast and lunch. It is a small store front restaurant, decorated in 1950s style with original “of the period” tables, chairs, serving ware, and decorations, with mostly 1950s background music piped in as well—hard to believe, but in a couple of years 1950’s stuff will cross over the line to become officially “antique.”

Dining is inside plus there are a few tables outside, the menu features many interesting teas, sandwiches, and various breakfast and lunch type foods—chicken, turkey, and fish dishes are on the menu, but no items with beef in them.

The food was good—it appeared to have been prepared on the premises, and not something delivered in bulk from a distributor in a plastic or cardboard container. Our service was good and prices were reasonable. Not the Inn at Little Washington, but a place you could get an interesting selection of dishes at a reasonable price, in an interesting “old timey” atmosphere to boot.

Basic, adequately prepared breakfast. Service was very slow and inattentive. I waited forever for my coffee, then waited another 20 minutes for a refill. Not worth the effort to find it.

I love this restaurant. Excellent local food and cooked just right. I also love the casual atmosphere, as I am a casual gal. Whenever I am in the area I eat at this restaurant as often as possible. It is also very close to my favorite museum, the Brandywine River Museum.

This is an unassuming cafe with a neighborhood feel (lots of moms with strollers at lunch) and really good food. I had an egg dish (eggs with cheese and tomato), and my son had chili and a wrap sandwich. Very well made (by the owner), with fresh ingredients. Don't miss the cupcakes: they are not flamboyant to look at, but they taste great, with just the right balance between the cake and the frosting.
