Sunflowers Minehead. (Possibly previously known as Witches Cauldron.) 27th April 2011. The Avenue. Fresh home made food in a stylish yet simple café’ with an excellent choice of fresh home made cakes.

A very good capuccino can be had here

My wife and I came in to this no-nonsense cafe and both had cappuccino. The quality was far better than I expected and I would certainly go back for coffee. I saw someone eating a roast dinner and it certainly looked appetising. Toilets are very clean which is always a good sign.

The scones were fresh and homemade and the tea was delicious ( real... More

She made this visit just that extra bit more special. I hope she is there when we return next. The only downside was that the tuna mayo baguette I ordered was... More

Cosy, friendly cafe with leaf tea and some of the best scrambled egg I've eaten in a cafe. Great value for money. I really must try the cakes next time :)

We have visited this café a number of times and can say that the food is really good and home made. The breakfast is a must. My wife enjoys a cup of coffee and says this is one of the best that she has ever had. Visit the sunflowers for a meal snack or just a cuppa you will not... More
