Sunrise Café opened in 2013 with the hopes of bringing residents and vacationers a place to enjoy home cooking by the beach. Our dream of opening a breakfast place started before the passing of the our family’s guardian angel, “Nana.” Helen M. Reid, a lifelong vacationer in Ocean City, loved her family and supported their dreams to the fullest. She was the best support system, and anyone who knew her was truly blessed to have gotten to have her in their lives.
The family has used her memory to start a small business, here, in her favorite place. Some of these memories include walks to some of our favorite places in Ocean City, NJ, sitting on the beach, taking long walks along the boardwalk or Asbury ave, stopping for a cup of tea. Those small moments nurtured our creativity and influenced us to appreciate the importance of family.
