Supper at Sunflower

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.

Said they had table service, sat us and forgot about us. I finally got up and got my own glasses to serve myself and some in the group water. Food was super slow to arrive. The service was very disappointing especially because the food is actually pretty good.

We visited Crested Butte during ski season and Sunflower was recommended. We walked in one evening and the place (very small) was full--so we called for reservations the next day. We were a party of five and were seated at the one large table in the place. We ALL enjoyed our meal--one of the owners picked out our entire menu... More

Good variety on menu and good Bloody Mary, and the food, when it finally came was average. Organic offerings make the prices a bit high. The service was terrible - coffee mugs had to be carried individually by the waitress to the kitchen to be refilled; had to ask for silverware; waited over 1/2 hour for food. Finally had to... 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
