Bravo to the photographer who took the picture for the eggs Benedict. What beautiful picture. I wished it tasted as good as it looked. Very bland hollandaise sauce eggs were over done and cold. Waitress and hostess were very good.

We’ve been coming here for years when we visit the Island. Excellent breakfast! Quality and delicious. Close to our RV park just outside of Sea Pines area. If you like breakfast you’ll love SunRise Cafe.

Lisa and Dawn were fabulous, fun and so helpful in making recommendations. Everything on the menu looks amazing. We had the Shrimp Hash and Apple Pancakes and of course a mimosa! Every bite was packed with flavor. Hope we have time to go back.

Always a good crowd at Palmetto’s. Fast seating if you get there early. Does all the standard breakfast items well. Really fun and yummy specials! Fun atmosphere and close to the water. Worth the trip.

The food was great and very reasonable. There was very good service. They constantly asked if we needed anything. It was a very chill and cool place also everyone was very nice. I give this place 5 stars easy!

Absolutely love their Crab Cake benedicts. and they also offer a half order which for me was more than more than enough. All their specials are fantastic as well. Loved sitting at the counter and seeing the team in action getting the orders orut.

On a cold Sunday we decided to check out brunch at this famous, funky place. It was very crowded and but our 20-minute wait was totally worth it. We were seated in the Mermaid Room (What’s not to love about mermaids???) and the decor definqitely...More

I don't think so specifically, but virtually everything they have works for kids -- like pancakes, scrambled eggs, etc -- and the food and setting is great. I have often taken young children here.
