Rise and shine, it’s breakfast time!
Many consider breakfast to be the most important meal of the day — that it’s beneficial for a healthy lifestyle. The main reason to eat breakfast is to get your metabolism moving so you have energy to go about your day. Here in Dubuque, your top choice should be Sunshine Cafe Family Restaurant for all of your breakfast needs.
Sunshine Cafe Family Restaurant has all the classic diner foods. These include omelets, skillets, sandwiches and burgers. My top pick are the skillets. They have six different kinds that are piled high. Those six are the Hobo Skillet, the Meat Lovers Skillet, the Chicken Fajita Skillet, the Garden Fresh Skillet, and my favorite, the Southern Skillet. All skillets are served with your choice of wheat or white toast For a 20 cent charge you can have an English muffin, rye or raisin toast.
The Southern Skillet includes a big ol’ pile of hash browns seasoned with jalapeño peppers, onions, sausage, and shredded cheese, and is topped with two eggs, any style. I go with two fried eggs, sunny side up. They go perfectly with toast when you break the yolk. To add a bit of extra flavor, I order sour cream to tie the skillet together.
Two things come to mind when eating here: great food and great price. No matter what you like, you’ll find something that will satisfy you and start your day right.
