Amazing place

The food is usually very good, the service is usually pretty good, the food comes out very fast, you get a lot, the prices are generally very good, the menu is huge.. Try to come off peak hours during season because it's extremely popular and they have a line out the door break, lunch and dinner.

What a great place! Busy all the time and yet service is instant with meals arriving well cooked, hot and with virtually no waiting. Staff pleasant ! Prices excellent. Try the early bird special menu which even includes a glass of wine !

When in Fort Myers ~ the Sunflower is always a favorite place to go for dinner. A very sweet family restaurant than never fails to give great service and wonderful meals. The daily specials are always a treat that also includes a glass of house wine if you like and a dessert as well. Go early for dinner, because the... More

I've been a "regular" at Sunflower Cafe for ten years. I used to go only for breakfast or lunch. I noticed the dinner specials on the board last year and decided to give it a try. I had a fantastic Roast Duckling on my first trip at an incredible price, a nice Prime Rib that was portioned appropriately (to me)... More

Spending a couple of days in Fort Myers area and used GPS to find a restaurant. Restaurant wasn't open for lunch so we saw the Sunflower nearby and decided to try it. Very much like Perkins. First lunch my wife and I had gyros. "Royal" meal includes fries and soup for just over a dollar more. Gyros were fantastic and... More

Was here recently with my wife and another couple. They have a pretty extensive menu with reasonable prices and good, friendly service. We will gladly go here again.

We ate at the Sunflower more than any other restaurant during our month's stay. The food is uniformly very good. The staff is cheerful and efficient, especially Pam. Their Seafood Alfredo is a real treat as is their chocolate cake. The menu is large.

Nice "early bird" menu which includes a little wine and dessert. Good, plentiful food and nice staff.

This restaurant became our go to place for a late breakfast while staying in Ft. Myers. They serve breakfast all day. Place is always busy. On Sunday, it was packed. Good pancakes, omelets, eggs....everything we tried was good. Super fast service, even when busy. I particularly enjoyed doner kebab (gyros) meat and eggs. Yummm.

We decided to try the Sunflower Cafe as others had recommended them. It is not a fancy place and the tables are really packed in tightly. We decided to order off the early bird menu where you get a small glass of wine plus dessert included. The prices are very reasonable so if you are looking for an inexpensive restaurant... More
