I had the good fortune of returning to Charleston after a near 5 year absence and re-visited this cafe on a recent trip. The mark of a sustainable restaurant is how all good things remain the same. The menu offers great variety...everything from shrimp and grits to fried offerings to salads. The sweet tea is memorable and the service is... More

First time I've ever had crab eggs Benedict. They were great. If you like strong coffee, this place will serve it up until you bounce off the walls!

We found this restaurant through Trip Advisor and were not disappointed. The restaurant is located in West Ashley is definitely a cafe. There is a fair amount of seating but we did notice from some of the other reviews there can sometimes be a wait. The cafe is itself very bright and cheery, and caters to the local clientele (as...

My Wife and I visit this Cafe several times a month. We are always great with happy staff that are truly glad to serve you. The food is always excellent and the portions are more than ample. Both Sat & Sun are quite busy for breakfast so think about arriving early to avoid a wait. I do not think you... More

We found this restaurant on TripAdvisor while visiting North Charleston. This was a great find and we are so happy we found it. With a homey atmosphere, great service (Danny was our waitress), large portions and quality food you can’t go wrong. My wife’s sandwich was so good, she actually ate the whole thing. Advertised as the BEST SANDWICH IN... More

While traveling, we stopped for brunch in Charleston, first choice was crowded and had a 45 minute wait, too long. We then went to the Sunflower Cafe, which had been our second choice to begin with. Got in and seated fairly quickly, and apparently we hit it lucky as I was hearing them tell people 30-45 minute wait by the... More

Sunflower Café is nestled in the West Ashley area on Highway 61. If you want to eat where the locals go this is the place. The staff is always very kind and attentive. The decor and feel are the 1980s but could service is timeless. Sunflower Café serves breakfast and lunch. Today's special was a shrimp Po boy. The shrimp... More

Sunflower Cafe offers fresh, simple breakfast and lunch fare (plus breakfast food can be ordered until 2pm!). The calabash fried shrimp and filet mignon sandwich are incredible. The atmosphere is no-frills, but the service is fast and friendly.

We went here last year for breakfast because of all of the great reviews. I was expecting more. The breakfast was average. Not great, not bad.
