Summit County’s best breakfast: Sunshine Cafe

  1. Sunshine Cafe

  3. Mountain Lyon Cafe

Sunshine Café in Silverthorne has won “Best Breakfast” almost every year since 2004. Part of the reason it’s so popular in this category is that it serves breakfast from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m., seven days a week. And, it caters to every taste, from smoothies, muffins, fresh fruit and homemade granola on the lighter side to gourmet omelets of all kinds, pancakes, French toast and country-style plates with fun names such as the “Ski Tech” (two sausage patties and hash browns smothered with spicy pork green chili, topped with cheese and served with a tortilla) and “Snowboarder’s Jump Start” (a veggie breakfast sandwich with scrambled eggs, tomatoes, cheese and avocado on sourdough bread with hash browns).
