There will be prizes – yes, prizes and everyone will win something. Each guest joining us for a meal on our anniversary will received a plastic egg with a prize inside (or a slip of paper telling you what your prize is). It could be a Sunny Point Café patch or lip balm, dinner on us, a free cup of coffee, t-shirt, copy of our cookbook, jam or dressing to take home, a jar of our award winning Bloody Mary mix, seeds from our garden, side of bacon…. you get the idea. Lots of fun stuff.

The grand prize winners (there will be three) will each receive a token that grants you+one the ability to SKIP TO THE FRONT OF THE LINE anytime we are open, FOR A YEAR!!!!! WHAT!?! Yes, you read correctly. Imagine sleeping in late on a Sunday, walking up with your bestie and skipping to the front of the line – sweeeet.

Can’t make it Monday, but still want to celebrate with us? As part of our our 15th Year Anniversary Celebration you can get our signature meatloaf at half price every Friday in September! (Limit one per guest, per visit.)


Sunny Point Café opened on September 17, 2003 serving breakfast and lunch at the corner of State Street and Haywood Road in a building that had been vacant for over 30 years. Two years later we began serving dinner. At the same time conversion of the weedy lot next door began when a teacher from Rainbow Community School, and part-time café employee, offered to grow flowers for the tables and herbs for the kitchen. The garden has continued to develop, transitioning to the growing of seasonal vegetables for incorporation into garden-to-table specials, and it has become a favorite place for customers to wait for tables and neighbors to stroll through and exchange gardening tips.

Sunny Point Café’s owners, April Moon Harper and her mother Belinda Raab, both actively work in the daily management and core decisions of running the business. April’s two daughters, Emma and Hana, having grown up in the restaurant, are now management level employees participating in decisions and are key participants to maintaining the quality of the customer experience.

As the popularity of our restaurant continues to hit new levels with national awards and press, we have worked to maintain our core values – providing quality comfort food in a welcoming environment. Although asked often about expanding to additional locations, April and Belinda feel it is important to stay connected to the community that has supported them all these years. Dedication to this one location is core to the nature of our family business.
