Great coffee and nice staff. Prices are pretty steep for food but it was quite good. Service is slow but wouldn't stop me from going back. The back patio is beautiful. It appears that they have everything here and would like to go back for dinner and drinks.

This used to be a great little cafe but alas has succumbed to being another small town tourist trap. Food is expensive with limited menu and seating. Prices have steadily crept upward for the same dishes.If you just want coffee then ok but don't expect to eat and get change out of $40-50 plus.

We got married in Sonoma in October 2013. Every morning we went to the Sunflower Caffe for coffee and breakfast. It became sort of a meeting place for everyone who was in town for the wedding. If you are looking for a "fine dining" experience you will be disappointted. BUT if you are looking for a comfy, casual cafe, you... More

We had lunch at the Sunflower Caffe. It was recommended by the massage therapists we had just seen. We were pleasantly surprised by the ambiance of the back patio. Our sandwiches were fabulous. I allowed myself to eat a croissant and it was SO worth it. Highly recommended for a casual lunching experience.

Had the white sangria....Very bitter needed 2 packs of sugar. Southwestern Cobb salad was crisp but bland. Cheese plate mostly 3 large pieces of bread. Staff friendly. Not worth the $55 for two.

First there are many places to choose on the square, I am just glad we chose this one. For the first time we both had the same thing. A roasted duck sandwich, with caramelized onions. Absolutely incredible, not tasting gamy or dried out. The salad was delicious, so fresh and light. I washed mine down with their Sangria and you... More

We stopped at the Sunflower for a cheese plate and cool drinks upon arrival in Sonoma, our last stop before heading home. It was a pleasant outdoor cafe, out of the glorious, albeit hot sun! The cheese tray was a perfect pick-me-up, in lieu of lunch. Just the right size for two people. Perfect.

I was really impressed with the freshness of the food at this cafe. The salad dressing was delicious and unique with its hints of cilantro. Even though it was in the 90, I tried their tomato soup, and I was not disappointed. There is not a lot of indoor seating, but the cafe does have some additional tables outside. The... More

I generally enjoy breakfast at this restaurant. The food is highest quality - you can tell. But you will pay for it, which I don't mind. I also don't usually mind ordering at the counter and enjoying the lovely garden out back. I had an unfortunate Father's Day breakfast situation. It took nearly 30 minutes to order and get takeout...

We enjoyed brunch at Sunflower, and we will definitely return. When we first parked, we hesitated to try this one since the line was out the door. However, the line moved quickly. Their lavender mist champagne drink was delightful! I enjoyed their oatmeal with fruit, and my husband loved their south-of-the-border omelet. We also had their pain-au-chocolate (wonderful) and a...
