We eat here every time we come to Charleston. I always order the Crab cake sandwich. wonderful! This time we arrived just minutes before they closed for the day. They were still welcoming and our food was perfect.

Me and the girlfriend went this morning for the first time and absolutely adored this place. Between the great atmosphere with unbelievably fresh good food and even better service this is a MUST GO. We've lived in charleston for years looking for a good breakfast place and I think we finally found it. I ordered the steak omelette, which was... More

We knew nothing about the place, just drove by and decided to try it for breakfast. It was one of the best meals of the trip. If you're headed out to see Charleston's plantations, stop here.

After driving by a million times, we finally stopped by! The atmosphere was friendly and everything you want a cafe to feel like. The staff was friendly and the food came out quick despite the cafe being packed. We both had one of the egg benedicts, and they did NOT disappoint! yummy!!!! We will definitely be back!

Small hometown feel, delicious sandwiches and friendly staff. Don't expect any frills and you don't need any, the food is real, good and exactly as described. The potato salad is definitely worth and try, along with whatever the soup of the day is!

We have eaten here several times and the food has always been good, whether breakfast or lunch. Only thing, their coffee is terrible.

We visited the café on our way to Magnolia Plantation. Would recommend this place to anyone headed there due to its convenient location along the way. Here you will find a typical southern breakfast with all the classics. Nice clean place with friendly service.

My pals and I meet here Saturday or Sunday for breakfast. Sunflower opens a little late, 8:00 am on Sat, 9:00 am on Sun., so get there early or there is a line. The food is consistently delicious, especially the benedicts. The spicy sausage benedict is plenty hot even for a leather-mouthed chili head like me. The crab and fried... More
