We were so excited to eat here as we appreciate that they are working on a farm-to-table concept and this is important to us. We were there for lunch and were pretty disappointed. We waited at the hostess area for about 10 minutes before anyone acknowledged that we were there. A woman in front of us was waiting before we... More

Great little place on Elk, where all the restaurants are. The croissants are like a trip to Paris. Delicious ! Great for breakfast.. Wish the coffee was stronger and tasty like in Europe.. Still a good place for breakfast ! Back patio in summer is ideal !

We loved the food here! Best breakfast burrito I've had in ages. Great innovative flavors with locally grown fresh ingredients. Service was a little slow, but the place was packed. Croissants were excellent. The patio was a perfect spot for ambience!

The food, service, and ambience were all EXCELLENT here. As others have stated, the Sunflower is distinct and separate businesses. One is breakfast/lunch, and then an entirely different business is run for dinner. Different owners, staff, menu, etc. This happened a few years ago when whomever owns the dinner business noticed that this really cool place was sitting empty at... More

Enjoyed a delicious grilled chicken salad for lunch. It took about 30 minutes to get our food so as long as you're not in a major rush, go and enjoy!

Sipping coffee and eating the fresh baked deliciously flakey croissants is a great way to start the day. The outdoor seating is away from traffic in what seems like a grove of trees. The menu is innovative and the food is delicious.

NOTE: Sunflower serves 3 meals a day but the dinner service is provided by a DIFFERENT owner, chef, staff and menu than breakfast and lunch. Hence, my review applies to DINNER only. Four of us shared the charcuterie board, salad with smoked goat cheese, burrata/mozzarella salad, pea soup, every appetizer on the menu and two desserts. It was the best... More

We came for breakfast here because it was highly rated. We ordered coffee to start- no decaf, really? Well the coffee never came; we reminded the server TWICE and he just spaced it out. Finally he passed us to another server who took the order a second time. She found our cold coffees on the counter and made 2 new... More

We went for lunch and it was absolutely packed. We waited a good 30 minutes, but it was well worth it. Our BLTs were stacked high with bacon - no skimping. The Mac and cheese was amazing. Simply exceptional. Our server was attentive and friendly, although a little overworked. Great experience and we will be back.
