Supper at Sunflower- a whole different deal!!

This is hands down one of the best restaurants in CB and Colorado! Funky and retro, in an old victorian house, the staff is part of the character. The food is superb- exquisitely prepared with care and passion by the young chef Kalon. Everything is fresh and local as possible. The presentations are... read more

Food was okay by the time it arrived. Looked like they were working hard but woefully slow and kitchen seemed unable to keep up on a Sunday morning for breakfast. Disappointing.

This place is very overpriced. They do have gluten free items on the menu. The service is average. We did not get our order at the same time and some in our party were almost finished eating before the rest of us got served. Not acceptable for a place that charges too much for the food.

Delicious sandwiches and homemade potato chips. Outdoor patio in backyard very pleasant. They use all local fresh produce.

Very different food. Some was wonderful, some not. One person in our party declared the cobbler "tastes like cardboard. Expensive

It was great! Owners birthday and Harry Potter theme. Great food. Service was a bit spotty at times but due to Arts Festival and all, not a problem. Different experience, but this what keeps life interesting. Would definitely go back.

Quality local ingredients and a very cool atmosphere. The sweet potato fries are great, just wish they gave you more, very stingy. Service was friendly but very slow. I would eat here again!

After waiting a long time (someone else took our table using our name), we were finally seating. The food was fresh enough but the service was very spotty and the place was quite expensive for deli style food. Although it was advertised as locally sourced, when we inquired, many of the meats were not from local farms.

We visited in August 2014. It was packed and the service was very slow. Since we were with friends, we didn't mind the slow service too much, but when we ordered dessert and coffee, we were told that other people needed the table, so we couldn't have coffee and dessert. The slow service was not OUR fault. We won't return.
