Been coming to JBay every year for many years now and what used to be an institution has deteriorated badly to say sadly. Coffee was tasteless, food cold and bread stale. Floors dirty as well. Very disappointed

Was part of a group of 4 for a late lunch here, and sorry to say we didn't think much of it. The service was terrible: we waited for an hour to get 2 sandwiches, a salad, and a plate of sushi. When it all arrived it was ok, but nothing spectacular. We sat outside; I popped in to use... More

I popped into this restaurant in December. The cleanliness is questionable, the service was prompt and the correct orders were given. However, the general condition of the restaurant leaves much to be desired and I was very disappointed

If you enjoy Jack Black craft beer or good coffee you must visit this spot. Good atmosphere and the owner is very friendly.

Overpriced terrible food. Responded negatively when we said we were disappointed. Feeling ripped off and unsatisfied. Would strongly discourage anyone from going there.

Absolutely horrific service!! We waited an hour for drinks and a coffee! The food was served first with no knives or forks or any condiments.. We fetched our own cutlery, took our own plates back to the kitchen.. I will never never never recommend or return to this terrible excuse for a restaurant. Pathetic guys, really fkn pathetic!!

An hours wait for 2 "pizza's" that was a wrap as a base with cheddar cheese ( the menu had it as mozzarella, as any pizza is made ). We received 1 pizza after 55 min then we had to wait for the next pizza and sushi that we ordered as a starter that still hadn't arrived. The "restaurant" was... More

The Sunflower is a dingy little restaurant in the middle of town. They have a great vibe and even have live music some nights. The food is not great, but this doesn't matter if you are going for the atmosphere. One of my favourites!
