Food, service, and value are tremendous here. So nice to visit a very personal, privately-owned diner instead of he chain places, and the quality difference is immediately apparent. You might have to wait a few minutes since Rise N Shine is so popular, but things move quickly and it is well worth it. Biggest cookies I've ever seen!

Found this Restaurant on an App, the food was absolutely fantastic. I got the Fried Pickle and Ranch Burger. There was a 10-ish minute wait, but no more than that. Not bad for 11 am on a Saturday. The food was hot and fresh when it arrived to our table, it wasn't kept sitting, unlike at some other restaurants. This... More

Rise and Shine is a great spot to grab a bite to eat! You will not leave hungry and the staff is more than welcoming! Whether you have a large group or you are dining alone, you will find this place is definitely not one you want to miss out on. I had the patty melt, which was delicious, and... More

This is our first visit to the Rise and Shine. We went there based on other reviews and everyone is right! It was packed but we got seated pretty quickly. The pancakes are light and fluffy. The scrambled eggs were excellent and yes as lots of people have said the home fries were great. We will be visiting again

Excellent menu - we wanted everything! My son loved the pancake menu. Do try the home fries, but not if you don't like coconut oil, we figured out that's the secret. We loved them. My mother loved her Irish Benny's. The waffles are light & fluffy. I had the egg, avocado, bacon burrito. Very good too - homemade chips are... More

We heard that it was great and it is . I had the Irish Bennie and my Sweetie had the buttermilk pancakes. We shared an order of the home fries. All were delicious and too much to finish! Well worth the money. You need to eat here!

Our waitress was pleasant, professional and engaging. We arrived on a Sunday around noon and were seated at the only vacant table. The menu was inviting. We were apprised that the home fries are "the best". They were very good; apparently, they make a special spice mix to flavor the potatoes. My (adult) son had some sort of breakfast sandwich...

This sits behind an oil change shop but don't pass it by. Great food, generous portions, and nice staff. On a Sunday morning be prepared to wait but you will be glad you did.

Took the advice of other reviews headed to Rise and Shine for breakfast with my husband and college son. Y'know when you're really full but can't stop eating? This is one of those places. The waffles were fluffy and yeasty, the eggs cooked just the way I like them, still moist. The coffee was great. And then there were the... More

My husband and I love to try local diners when we travel in the US, this one is spectacular! We waited a while for our order, but it was busy, the coffee was never ending and it was well worth it.
