Take out your GPS and track this Cafe down to have a wonderful breakfast. Go for the special French Toast. You won't be disappointed. Keep it simple with Eggs and Bacon. You'll be eating a winner. Dining inside or outside and it looks like they had an overflow area as well. We were well-attended by the staff. Everybody looked after... More

We stop here for breakfast every time we stay on HHI. The menu hasn't seemed to change much over the years. Yes,it's crowded, tables are packed together (reminds one of New York City) and you may have a long wait before you're seated. We like it here. BTW,nothing to do with the cafe, but you may have seen photos or... More

My daughter lives in Hilton Head and on one of my first trips down, we visited Palmetto Bay Sun Rise Cafe. Now I have to visit here each time I am down, or my trip is not complete. While I am still a bacon & eggs person, they do have other selections (french toast, sausage biscuits & gravy, etc.). The... More

Our favorite place to eat breakfast on Hilton Head! This is a local place with a local clientele, but they warmly welcome visitors to the Island. Their Blueberry Cream Cheese French Toast is amazing; it's a daily "special" and is not on the menu. Sometimes they sell out of it later in the morning, so get there early if that's... More

Crab cakes Benedict, fried chicken Benedict and stuffed French toast. Food and service were excellent. We'll be back.

We enjoy sitting at the bar and watch the chefs cook our food. They are fast and fun. Foods are always delicious. Waitresses are friendly. Feel like having breakfast at home.

I've eaten at Palmetto Bay Sun Rise Cafe a few times. The food and service has always been 5 star. As another reviewer wrote, they are "consistently solid", and that is incredibly accurate from my experience too. When I goto breakfast restaurants, I tend to look at the "fancier" breakfast dishes since I can scramble eggs at home. That said,... More

We go here at least a couple of times every year during our golf trips and are never disappointed. One of the best breakfast places on the island. Today I had the corn beef hash that was made front scratch. it was the best I ever had. My only complaint was that it was also the most expensive corn beef... More

Went during the week and were seated outside right away. Changed tables immediately because of the garbage smell. We had the french toast with a side order of eggs and everything was delicious, even the coffee.

We have been going to the Sun Rise cafe odd and on for 10 years. It's our go to meeting place for meeting out of town friends and have NEVER been disappointed! From their omelettes to their French Toast to the flavorful hot coffee! Pay attention to the many delicious specials. Surprisingly, we rarely try lunch because we live the... More
