Stopped in for a quick breakfast. Chile Relleno omelet was good, potatoes were even better. Service was excellent #

This is my first visit to Sunrise Cafe. I had Huevos Rancheros with green chile. The food was OK - nothing special. The best step they could take to improve on average food is to improve on below average service. No one checked on me after bringing my plate, no offer for more water, no question about 'How is your... More

We had a great breakfast Sunday. My husband, son in law and I ordered the chicken fried steak and eggs. The chicken fried steak was a generous portion , my eggs were cooked to order, the red chile dusted fried potatoes were not a bit greasy. The breakfast came with biscuits and gravy. Everything was delicious although my husband commented... More

This is a family run restaurant and the father is a hustler and the whole staff. The food no matter when you go is very good and you can't beat the price, a lot of food on each plate. Steak & Enchilada is one of my favorites and the Chicken Fried Steak is the best I've had her in Santa... More

Omelette best I've ever eaten, my husband got the Sunrise Omelette with the red sauce was a little hot for my gringo husband. Our Grandson got the pancake stuffed with strawberries he loved them and was more than he could eat.

Look for the satellite dish on the roof with the sunnyside up eggs. The Mexican family running this restaurant is friendly, courteous, and competent. They have built this business from scratch over five years. The interior has been upgraded to reasonably attractive, always clean, and nicely decorated with local art and really nice sunrise and sunset photos. Breakfast dishes, eggs,... More

Great place, two visits in 5 days, breakfast & lunch. Seat yourself, fast friendly service, great food & prices. I was glad I had read the reviews , I wouldn't have stopped on impulse based on shabby exterior, don't "judge a book by its cover " it's a great local spot. We are in Santa Fe for a couple more...

The reviews are spot on. A home-owned dinner tucked into the corner of a strip mall. The decor is well loved but clean. Excellent blue corn enchilada special. A great find!

And maybe as good, if not better than all of Texas where I grew up eating this steak at every opportunity. I did a taste test in last few weeks comparing Sunrise to another Café in Santa Fe legendary for its chicken fried steak. Sunrise beats them hands down on taste, value and service (not to mention price). Easy parking.
