The owners great you and you can immediately tell they are the best kind of foodies. They are passionate about their menu and wine. The place is quaint and I am glad we went in October during an off season because I would hate to miss this during one of the busier times. The food items were mostly from local... More

Sandwiches were terrific, but pricey. The bread was excellent and we loved their homemade potato chips. Ambience is great and the staff was very friendly.

I have eaten at the Sunflower several times and I love it every time! The sandwiches are delicious and the portions are not scrimped on.

We had one of our most memorable dinners of the year this past weekend at The Sunflower. From the fabulous service and the great energy from the kitchen, to the desserts that we could barely fit into our full bellies but kept shoveling in anyway, down to the perfectly paired wines and the live acoustic music, this was an incredible...

Really thought the food was awesome, original and fresh. Loved the fig and Black Forest ham pressed sandwich with truffle oil. Will be craving that for some time. Fried pickles were really good too. Back patio was really nice. But 3 sandwiches, fried pickles (substituted these for the sides that came with two if our sandwiches) tap waters and one... More

We sat outdoors on a beautiful day, and they brought the unch we had ordered inside. All ingredients were fresh and delicious. My husband raved about the tuna sandwich, which contained some unusual flavorful things such as black olives and capers.

We came a bit late and got a nice table in the rear courtyard. The baccalao was superb, fried crispy but covered with a tasty sauce. The skewered steak was locally sourced and delicious, with a mild horseradish sauce. The soup, leek and corn, was subtle and delicious. For nibbles, we had chorizo (rich and delicious) and small pickled peppers... More

Enjoyed dinner in third week of July. Food is tasty and inventive. Portions are small, so don't under-order the number of plates shared among you. The octopus plate was my favorite. Ambience is warm and inviting, although sound level a bit high. As I write, I couldn't get the web site to load, never good. We enjoyed a lovely French... More

Had a variety of food from the small plates and apps menu. Gourmet cheese plate appetizer, beet salad and Tuscan been soup were all superb. Tartare also great. Cozy back patio setting was really nice. A favorite lunch place is also a new fave dinner place. Nice affordable wine list. Personalized service by owners a plus!

This has always been a lovely deli. Unfortunately, you can no longer buy sandwiches for your hikes! They now have contracted with a chef who arrives every afternoon and serves dinner - very good and fresh.
