We sat outdoors on a beautiful day, and they brought the unch we had ordered inside. All ingredients were fresh and delicious. My husband raved about the tuna sandwich, which contained some unusual flavorful things such as black olives and capers.

We came a bit late and got a nice table in the rear courtyard. The baccalao was superb, fried crispy but covered with a tasty sauce. The skewered steak was locally sourced and delicious, with a mild horseradish sauce. The soup, leek and corn, was subtle and delicious. For nibbles, we had chorizo (rich and delicious) and small pickled peppers... More

Enjoyed dinner in third week of July. Food is tasty and inventive. Portions are small, so don't under-order the number of plates shared among you. The octopus plate was my favorite. Ambience is warm and inviting, although sound level a bit high. As I write, I couldn't get the web site to load, never good. We enjoyed a lovely French... More

Had a variety of food from the small plates and apps menu. Gourmet cheese plate appetizer, beet salad and Tuscan been soup were all superb. Tartare also great. Cozy back patio setting was really nice. A favorite lunch place is also a new fave dinner place. Nice affordable wine list. Personalized service by owners a plus!

This has always been a lovely deli. Unfortunately, you can no longer buy sandwiches for your hikes! They now have contracted with a chef who arrives every afternoon and serves dinner - very good and fresh.

This restaurant has the best sandwiches in town bar none. The salads are also excellent. We had lunch here every day while visiting Crested Butte. Be prepared for crowds and a long wait after you order.

Three of us dined at the Sunflower last evening and what amazing meals they were! The staff really knows how to recommend their specialty meals of the evening - and it's a good thing, too, because the menu is often updated depending on availability of veggies, meats, etc. The Sunflower is SMALL - MAKE A RESERVATION!! I love small restaurants... More

While visiting my beautiful daughter Dannee in Crested Butte, I was introduced to many great meals in this sweet little town, but the one that really knocked me out was at The Sunflower Deli. This small venue serves light fare in the daytime, but Tuesday thru Saturday evenings it features a culinary feast in a farm to table setting. Chris... More

Went there for dinner with a few friends two weeks ago and sat at the bar. This place feels like a a cozy warm European bistro in a small warm comfortable place. Natalie and Chris run the front of the house and are great hosts with a wealth of knowledge of the menu and wine and beer. Kalon is a... More
