Great for locals and tourists

Try the duck breast sandwich. It is unique and outstanding. I've returned many times for that delicacy. If you get there early, you can avoid the sometimes long wait at the ordering station. The food you order is delivered to your table after a relatively short time. Eat outside during the... read more

We got the breakfast food, so we may have to come back and try something different for lunch, so that's a good sign that we'd be willing to go back, but this wasn't our favorite breakfast. The ingredients tasted fresh, but it was just okay. There weren't a ton of options to choose from and for limited ingredient omelets that... More

Try the duck breast sandwich. It is unique and outstanding. I've returned many times for that delicacy. If you get there early, you can avoid the sometimes long wait at the ordering station. The food you order is delivered to your table after a relatively short time. Eat outside during the non-rainy season in their patio.

Excellent coffee and a gourmet breakfast that is one of the best in Sonoma. Also, one of the few places that allows the customer to sit outside facing the square.

Love this place. I usually have lunch here at least once if I visit my daughter who lives in Sonoma. Lunch is great. They have good burgers and creative Smoothies and other drinks. They have a great shaded patio where you can sit and chat, too. Highly recommend it for a normal afternoon lunch. Prices are good.

This past weekend while we were in Sonoma we discovered the Sunflower Caffe at the recommendation of our cottage owner, and ended up loving it so much we returned the following day for breakfast again. Our party consisted of the grandparents, three adult sons and one daughter in law and our 15 month old granddaughter, and all of us enjoyed... More

The food here was good and healthy, and it is a popular place in Sonoma. The staff was not the nicest and the price is to expensive compared to what you get. Would recommend, but not the best cafes int the area.

We needed a little something for lunch in between wine tastings and happy we stopped by Sunflower Cafe. The courtyard garden was perfect spot to relax and enjoy this delicious, organic food. I had the vegan pita, two pockets filled with fresh veggies and a cauliflower-almond sauce. Yum. Wish we had a spot like this in the Northeast.

Just had lunch at the Sunflower. It is possible I had too high expectations. I thought it was good, but not great. I was not wow'd. But it is definitely a safe place to eat.

We were recommended to go to this café by the receptionist at the hotel and were glad we did. We had lunch here one day and were very happy with our choice. The food is all healthy choices, freshly prepared and they serve the best smoothies ever!! We had salads and omelettes and sat outside in the rear courtyard garden... More

Great breakfast and brunch cafe offering all types of coffee, teas, juices and smoothies, plus a full breakfast and brunch menu that will feed any family. Casual furnishings with a great patio located in the back with ample room for large families. Highly recommended for all, moderately priced and casual atmosphere.
