Love Sunflower Bakery. Tomato basil soup and chicken salad are delicious. Husband loves the Cuban! We visit Sunflower every time we're in Galveston.

We never try to visit the same place twice in the same trip but Sunflower was the exception. It’s a Tuesday morning and you’re offered a mimosa. How civilized! Every day should start this way. From the oysters Benedict to crab cakes and eggs, challah...More

Get here early. Gets crowded quickly. Very popular with the local crowd. Table was dirty as we were sat. Food is good. Servers were polite. Prices elevated due to island location.

I think that Sunflower will customize a cake, if by that you mean decorating one for a special occasion. Pattycakes, a couple of blocks away and also on 14th Street, does customized cakes. Both bakeries are good.
