Enjoy a breakfast, lunch, homemade pastry, and a darn good cup of coffee
It's sometimes tough to have something satisfying to eat or a good cup of coffee in the morning, or to get out of the office for lunch. We're good at getting you really good, quality food, fast...and one great cup of coffee. Our fresh coffee uses indirect heat to stay warm, so it does not "bake" on a burner. Order and pay at the counter, and grab your coffee or something cold from the fridge. You can enjoy your meal here or head out after you get your order. Either way, it won't take long to get your breakfast or lunch at The Sunrise Cafe' in Carlisle.
Me and my kids
In the middle, me (Tara, originally from Long Island). That's my son Tommy...the mind behind the glazed donut breakfast sandwich on my menu and some of my specials. And there's my daughter Sara, the creator of the Boston Cream cream cheese. Of course, I had to name that bagel and cream cheese combo "Sara's Sweetness." Sara runs errands for the cafe' when she's not working or doing school work, and Tommy is AROTC at Virginia Military Institute, so he comes in to eat when he's home 🙂
There’s history here
The cafe’ is situated in the home of John Hays, a Civil War soldier, an entrepreneur who began Frog, Switch and Mfg. Company in 1886, and a lawyer. He purchased the home from his uncle in 1876. The picture is the home after it was built around the original stone house. Take a look around at the photos and historic background while you’re here. We exposed and re-pointed the original exterior stone house walls found behind the interior drywall, rebuilt the outside patio (it had been removed), and preserved as much of the original home as demolition took place. We’re proud to show off a renovated piece of Carlisle.
The Carlisle Borough and The Cumberland County Redevelopment Authority for providing financial assistance that allowed me to open my cafe’.
