Stayed at the attched Motel and got a discounted breakfast. The place is a typical breakfast diner. Friendly, efficient service and good food. Many of the locals we spoke to the evening before recommended this restaurant as one of the best for breakfast in town. I would recommend it now as well.

we've been coming here for breakfasts for a few years now and its always been good and fast, It has recently changed owners and the menu prices went up but the staff remained so the food hasn't changed. The Sunrise breakfasts come with coffee but you need to request home fries if you want them. I like them extra crispy... More

I'm ok with a restaurant that has a sign at the door that says "Please wait to be seated" but to be totally ignored by the staff for almost 15 minutes is ridiculous. Please, just acknowledge that you know we are there. And then to get an angry stare down by one of the waitresses when I coughed, well that... More

We had breakfast here during the off season (February) so it was nice and quiet - only one other table at 9:00. Very, very clean and cozy with all the quilts on the wall. Very friendly staff, good service and quite reasonable. Food was good but not great.

Certainly don’t understand what others see about this place for breakfast! I guess they just don’t venture out too far to try other fantastic places for breakfast. One order was a cheddar cheese omelette (on the cold side) with 2 slices of toast, I have never seen such a flat omelette; it was even flatter than a super thin pancake;... More

We wake up at the Colonial then enjoy a great breakfast at Sun Rise Cafe, what a great way to start the day. Always fresh and tasty i love the farmers sasage and the silver dollar pancakes so good. Staff always welcomes us with a big smile and quick to get you a coffee and take your order. Food always... More

The place was hyped to us by locals and just didn't meet expectations. I had the omelet which was OK but the cheddar they used in it wasn't great. Just normal diner food as far as I can tell.

even of you are not a guest in the adjacent motel, you can go there to have a great breakfast. Lots of options, friendly service, and the price is right.

Very reasonably priced and non-greasy breakfasts. Excellent service, good sized portions and friendly staff.

Part of Colonial Motel. Best breakfast in Port Elgin. Clean, food tastes great, basics for breakfast and lunch. Had steak & eggs with home fries & rye plus coffee, all perfect. Nice staff. There are beautiful quilts for sale and the adjacent motel has antiques. My favorite breakfast place in either Port Elgin or Southampton.
