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

Since their major renovation last Fall, the Sunflower Deli has become THE place to go for lunch, and now dinner. You've got to try their amazing pastrami rueben!

We came here for the Farm to Table dinner. The interior is cozy and warm. Tables are close together so be prepared to be social! The wait staff is efficient, knowledgeable and friendly. The food is creative and yummy - maybe a tad small on the serving size. It's a bit pricey - we had two entrees and a bottle... More

Yummy & fresh in an inviting, relaxing atmosphere with friendly service. My husband and I hunger for appetizing gluten free bread, and we scored here! Not only appetizing but delicious bread adorned our toasted sandwiches. He enjoyed the Pastrami Ruben, and I savored the 1/2 Turkey Club (both on house made gluten free bread) & 1/2 salad. Their house made... More

Breakfast, lunch and Dinner are all run by separate people here. Breakfast and Lunch are both good, simple, easy food. Dinner is AMAZING! It is a farm to table concept executed extremely well. They do fill in the menu with well sourced not local products. The menu changes every night and is fantastic. I enjoy doing a chefs choice dinner... More

I like this place. It's laid back…chill atmosphere. No frills. My lunch was delicious. I had the Happy Hippie. YUM! I love what they've done with the recent remodel. You guys have done a fabulous job and the place looks great ;-) I also like that they offer the small bottle of wines because I love having a glass of... More

Freshest of ingredients are used to create excellent sandwiches. My wife decided on the b.l.t. and I went with Turkey & Bacon club. Both sandwiches served on sourdough bread toasted perfectly. The chips were homemade and very good but the sweet potato fries across the table appeared to be better. I'll try those next time. Great coffee and tea bar... More

My husband and I so enjoyed our sandwiches at The Sunflower Deli that we returned the next day. My husband went for the turkey& bacon sandwich day 1 and the next day had the turkey club. He highly recommends both. I had the tomato & mozzarella panini day 1 and the next day a b.l.t. Both of these were great.... More
