We loved this spot. The 10 of us shared the delicious, inventive food. Friendly, responsive service. Still thinking of the bolognese

Visited for breakfast. Lox Benedict was delicious, great coffee. Thankful for the gluten free bread option! Breakfast burrito good, but not the best. Husband felt is wasn't as "substantial" as he likes. Good homemade food, fresh. Portions not ginormous, but adequate without overeating or leaving food on the plate. My food was not very hot, but was very tasty. Great... More

We made reservations for the first dinner sitting and dined here on Christmas Eve, 4 adults and 1 child. The moment we arrived, you could feel the happy energy. I have been here for lunch and the food is always wonderful. The service too. Our server was fabulous and so was the rest of the staff. I forgot his name,... More

We absolutely loved the Sunflower. The name in trip advisor says 'deli', but it seemed to me at night to be a charming little restaurant. Small place, excellent wine, excellent service, great food. We found it by accident, and anytime we go back to Crested Butte, we are going there.

Great place for lunch. We both had sandwiches, a Reuben and a turkey club panini. Both were excellent and nicely sized. A pleasant surprise were the still warm home made potato chips. Would definitely come again.

This restaurant was by far my favorite place to go while we were there for our anniversary trip. They had awesome service, very friendly and attentive staff. Yummy food and great coffee! Camp 4 You coffee is the "favorite" coffee shop in town but they don't brew their own drip coffee, just espresso! This is my favorite coffee shop in... More

Locally sourced food was wonderful - surpassed only by a level of attentive service that was as welcome as it was unexpected! A friend had recommended it and we enjoyed the best meal of a 3 day weekend in Crested Butte. It will be the first place I visit if I return to Crested Butte!
