We arrived hungry just before noon today, Monday. The restaurant was big enough to separate the diners, so it was quiet, and they were still serving breakfast, which is what we wanted. There is a wide selection of breakfast items, from simple traditional to complex...More

We really enjoyed their homage ravioli with a garlic cream sauce (you can opt for marinara) and their homemade manicotti with cheese, spinach, and marinara. Delicious and filling. You could be happy splitting, and having their homage pies for dessert. That’s what we will do...More

Over 20 of us descend on the Sunset Cafe every December for a Christmas Bird Count. Nancy has been the only server when we first arrive (6:30am) and has been amazing in getting orders quickly and acurately and she makes you feel very welcome. Amazing!
