Fabulous eclectic restaurant. Sometimes I order things that don't sound that great to me, but they are still fabulous. The owners for dinner (it is a co-op restaurant with different owners for breakfast/lunch vs dinner) are wonderful people and do a great job! This restaurant is much better than others in town that charge more.

The Sunflower Deli is a great spot for breakfast/ lunch, and then it becomes a fine dining restaurant under different hands in the evening. Some of the best food in town that is not highly priced.

The Sunflower Restaurant is a delight. Each dish is innovative and prepared with great attention to flavor details and asthetics. The tapas or small plate menu with wine pairings provides a creative fusion of locally sourced organic foods complimented by wines that are perfect flavor companions and often surprising choices. The young couple that own and operate this little gem... More

Coming from the UK we have visited a number of towns in the US for skiing over the past nine years and none have impressed us more than Crested Butte. Apart from the skiing, dining out in the evenings is a big part of our holiday and we have been pleasantly surprised by the number of good quality restaurant in... More

We could not get in for dinner (closed Sundays and Mondays) but had a small breakfast another day. The expresso was good. We tried a chocolate filled croissant topped with bacon. It was pretty good ! This is a coop which serves locally grown products. Be sure to reserve ahead for dinner .

This was the best place we found for dinner in Crested Butte, it has a warm, informal and cheerful atmosphere and the food which includes many small plates were imaginative and delicious.

Joined a friend in CB this week and stopped in at the Sunflower Deli for dinner. Had Nick pick several small plates for us to sample along with the appropriate wine pairing. Ahi, Elk meat balls, and an out of this world concoction of a home made donut with prosciutto and a semi hard boiled egg on top finished our... More

This is by far one of the better breakfast places I have been to! I love the cute, cozy, and inviting deli/coffee shop atmosphere, and better yet the prices are realistic for great food! My boyfriend and I heard good things about Sunflower, and tried it out for breakfast while staying in CB. The service was friendly, and the menu... More

We went to Sunflower for lunch after seeing some good comments about it. Service was good and fast. They offer several soups and sandwiches. They also serve breakfast and dinner.
