New Boise restaurant opens in former Moon’s Kitchen spot

It’s not always about breakfast at the Sunrise Cafe. Grab a fat double cheese burger. (Mmm. Is that fry sauce back there?)

If you’re still jonesing for hash browns after Moon’s Kitchen closed at 6767 W. Fairview Ave. earlier this year, fear not: Breakfast is served again on Fairview.

And lunch. And dinner.

Treasure Valley family-dining staple Sunrise Cafe opened Monday in the space, offering comfort foods ranging from fresh-baked pie and omelettes to chicken-fried steak sandwiches, burgers and spaghetti and meatballs.

It’s the fifth Sunrise Cafe in the Valley. The locally owned restaurant has Boise locations at 7135 W. State St. and 4202 W. Overland Road. There’s also a Sunrise Cafe in Middleton at 200 E. Main St.

The original Sunrise Cafe — still going strong — opened in 1988 at 805 N. Main St. in Meridian. It won Best Breakfast in the Meridian Press’ 2017 Best of Meridian this summer.

A sixth Sunrise Cafe is in the works at 2032 E. Overland Road, near Majestic Cinemas. Rob Goodsill, who owns the Sunrise restaurants, hopes to have it up and running in November.

The Sunrise Cafe on Fairview has an indoor capacity for 208 customers. Another 20 or so diners can be seated on a rear outdoor patio. Hours are 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday, 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday.
