Sunshine Grille satisfies morning hunger

Sunshine Grille satisfies morning hunger

The Sunshine Grille offers tasty strawberry banana smoothies. They serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily.

Few people would like to venture out of their beds in the morning, even for breakfast. Traveling outside of Harford County for breakfast is an even tougher task to ask of someone. However, heading out to the Sunshine Grille in Fork, Maryland, is worth the trip.

After walking to the entrance of the Sunshine Grille, it was a bit surprising to see that the waiting room was filled with people. However, I only had to wait about 20 minutes for a table.

The restaurant welcomed me with a warm, cozy atmosphere. There looked to be a lot of people stuffed into a small space, but it did not prove to be an issue and just added to the atmosphere of everything being close together and cozy.

The menu was seemingly large, but most of it was simply for dinner and lunch. The breakfast menu was only about one page so it was not overwhelming. There was an array of different foods from breakfast burritos, omelets, sandwiches, and classics like pancakes and waffles.

I finally decided on getting French toast with bacon and scrambled eggs on the side. I also got a strawberry banana smoothie. The smoothie took about five minutes to reach my table. When I received it I noticed its consistency was not as thick as I would have wanted.

The French toast finally arrived about 20 minutes later. It was soft and light in the middle and became a bit tougher towards the crust. The bread was thick, which caused it to look big and puffy. The large portion size filled me up.  My scrambled eggs were not as light and airy as I would have liked, but they still tasted good. The bacon was cooked perfectly. It was not too crispy or too under cooked.

All in all, the breakfast was great and I would recommend the Sunshine Grille to anyone looking for a cozy breakfast spot. It does not offer quick service, so you will probably spend a good bit of time there compared to other breakfast places. Still, it has a warm atmosphere that provides a tasty breakfast. For a price of $17 for two people, it is a good buy for the quality of food.
