Best Silverthorne restaurant: Sunshine Cafe

Sunshine Café has won “Best Breakfast” almost every year since 2004, partially due to the fact that it serves breakfast all day and also due to its amazing selection — more than 30 choices, from light to hearty fare. And for lunch, it offers even more items, including sandwiches, burritos, chilies, salads, pasta and hot gourmet dishes. It’s just too bad the restaurant doesn’t serve dinner (but to maintain its record number of offerings, it’d have to produce about 89 items, we’re guessing); it’s open from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. seven days a week, so plan accordingly.
