Light and Fresh Breakfast! Perfect for a busy day!!

I went on a short bike ride and hike, and was feeling like a light breakfast. Riding my bike through town, I decided to check this place out. I sat out on the front patio area and enjoyed a conversation with a nice couple on their honeymoon. I ordered an orange juice (would have gotten a bloody... read more

I understand that this venue is shared by two businesses - one doing breakfast and lunch and the other supper. THIS REVIEW JUST REFERS TO THE EVENING BUSINESS. We were staying in Crested Butte for two nights and were given two recommendations for dinner, Soupçon and Sunflower. We had a superb dinner at Soupçon and were expecting an equally high... More

My friend and I were in town for a wedding so after a not so satisfying brunch at another Crested Butte establishment, we gave Sunflower Deli a try. My breakfast was amazing. I got the gravy benny. I am not vegetarian, but I still found the veggie gravy delicious. My friend got the burrito and said it was only so-so.... More

Small seating area but has a great outdoor seating area. Food was good and fresh. Try the soup and sandwich combo.

Had an outstanding lunch. Great menu, lovely salad combinations. They try to kick it up a notch and try new things.

This is the restaurant you've been looking for. Search no further. The dinner dining experience here is off the charts incredible. Your soul needs this place. I've dined at restaurants around the world, and Sunflower now occupies my top spot. Some things you should know: the lunch restaurant is different from the dinner experience. At lunch, it's a sandwich spot.... More

The owners are amazing and make you feel like they are your friends. We had such great meal and everything they offer is farm to table. They also will pair wine and beer if you want them too. You NEED reservations if you want to eat there.

This place has the best sandwiches in town. And the sweet potato fries are delicious. Nice place to sit and eat or grab a sandwich to go. Friendly service.

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.
