My daughter and I often share an omelet and a pancake because we want it all! Best pancakes, cinnamon buns, home fries, omelets in Syracuse!

Not a typical diner menu, it’s more like an eclectic brunch, with simple ingredients and great flavor. The vibe inside makes you feel like your in a NYC or Miami restaurant. An amazing experience all around. Perfect gathering place! Must try!

The staff is overworked, but friendly and efficient. The meals are great tasting and plentiful. Be sure to check out their specials. Be patient. They are always crowded.

We chose Rise N Shine because I loved the story of its beginnings which I found on Trip Advisor. We were a family of 16, with five children. We were greeted warmly and shown to our table within a reasonable amount of time. The little...More

Don’t let the Valvoline oil in front turn you away. This hole in the wall spot has the best breakfast around! The frittatas are huge and the coffee is their own local blend and it is delicious! I can’t say enough great things about this...More
