SonRise Cafe has been serving The Villages community since 2005. With its friendly employees and home-cooked meals, SonRise Cafe offers a small town feeling where the guests are treated like family. Owners Carol and George “Pete” Laufersky have made the area home for more that 20 years. Three of their four children have graduated high school and are working in The Villages. Their fourth child, Sammy-Joe, attends The Villages Charter School. Carol and George’s recent purchase of a pizzeria in Lady Lake, Sammy-Joe’s, is named after their fourth child.
