We have been going here for breakfast for many years now, and always enjoy the service and quality. Almost always a line, but never more than 5 minutes wait. Try it out!!

This is a well-established locals restaurant that is off the beaten path but worth the drive! I live across town from the Sunrise Cafe but experience anticipation on my commute! I LOVE the food here! I admit it, I always order the same thing but I have tried the food from others. The Huevos Rancheros is amazing! The Ranchero sauce... More

One bite of any of their breakfast or lunch items, and you'll see why this place is so popular. Great tasting food at reasonable prices, bring the locals back time and again. You'll feel like a local on your first visit when owner, Bobby, or his son, Cory, greet you at the door! Open for breakfast and lunch only, with... More

A few new items have been added, but the basic menu has never changed and is, and has always been, excellent. Several of the servers have been... More

Generous sandwiches and salads at lunchtime served with a side of greetings. Very reasonable prices. They have the friendly touch and are also strong supporters of community events - Sunrise Cafe is a GEM in... More

Great to see "hands-on" ownership taking pride in the restaurant business. Great selection of omelettes. Fresh baked breads for a variety of sandwiches. I had the Superbird-- YUUUUUMMMYY! The housemade potato salad was off the charts. The San Franciscan scramble was like nothing I have ever had. Fresh spinach , mushroom & ortega chiles, topped with jack cheese. Foodies unite,...

Very happy to find this gem in Vista. In a sea of ordinary choices this one stands out. They are committed to fresh local food served in a variety of ways. Have been there multiple times and it's satisfying every time. People are attentive and genuine as is the owner. Try it once, and you'll be back for more.
