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 or lightly breaded and cooked to perfection. The Philly cheesesteak sandwich is always a winner. Thin and crispy delicious fries accompanied our sandwiches. You may also choose from one of the delicious salads or breakfast specials. Locals always seem to meet up with someone unexpectedly. You won't find the food network here and that is a good thing.

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.

The food is mediocre, service was great. Coffee is not good. But I can see why its rated so high, the staff is extremely friendly and helpful making the experience joyful

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.

Pre-cruise Sunday brunch about 20 minutes from the port. Party of 8 and they thankfully took and honored reservations as there were lots of people waiting. Lots of variety on menu and even some great sounding specials (my daughter had one - German chocolate pancakes with toasted coconut - huge portion - she ate 1 and exclaimed they were absolutely delicious). Started with hot and powdered sugar laden beignets and bottomless cups of coffee. Delish. Rest of the food was very good as well and came out quickly after ordering. Extremely reasonably priced. Place is more than simple though - clear plastic tablecloths detract as does the somewhat tacky decor. Service, while friendly and accurate was more than "Southern slow".
