sunrise-00This morning I hopped on the motorcycle with no particular destination in mind. I was hungry and wanted to ride along the coast so I figured I stop when I saw something interesting.

After riding along with various other bikes down Pacific Coast Highway, I spied one of the few small restaurants that was open on the Memorial Day holiday. Sunrise Cafe is a rather unassuming building with outdoor seating along two walls. The place was packed with patrons and I grabbed one of the few empty tables still available in the early morning.

Looking over the menu there were many bacon-infused options to choose from. Breakfast burritios in the wet or dry vartiety, special breakfasts with sides of bacon, and much more.

I chose the Sunrise Special. A good deal at $7.95 for two pancakes, two eggs, hash browns, and four slices of bacon. With my orange juice in hand I waited for my meal to arrive as I watched the cars drive by along the bustling Pacific Coast Highway.


I was definitely not disappointed. The entire meal was great. A classic American breakfast with all the right elements and just the right amount of preparation. The bacon was hot & crispy with just the right amount of grease.


The meal at Sunrise Cafe earns a Smaste™ rating of 38.951. I recommend you go if you’re in the area and need a tasty meal. Want more opinions? Read more reviews on Yelp.
