“Great Food”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

Lots of wonderful food. Organic and local minded cooking with a sort of mexican theme. Meals are served with delicious salsa and every meal I have had there has been great. Vegetarian friendly

“Delicious and unique food”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

We like Sunspot when we want something different than the usual. Last time we visited I tried the Sweet Potato tamales on the server's recommendation...OUTSTANDING! I am so glad I took her opinion! The service was great- everyone was friendly and the food was brought out in a very timely manner. We'll definitely be back!

“Wednesday Wine Night”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Great food and even better service. This local spot is great if you need to unwind after a long day, eat some great food, and have a few drinks. They have tons of beers on tap and have half price bottles of wine on Wednesday nights. Overall, a great restaurant.

“Great salads and burgers”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

We ordered salads, burgers, and veggie burgers for take out. They were very tasty....They also came with chips and salsa. The veggie burger was slightly spicy so I wouldnt recommend it for a child. But it was great for an adult meal. We have also eaten at the restaurant and liked the food.

“Unique Entrees, Ever-Changing Menu but Always the Green Salsa & Chips”
Reviewed December 17, 2012

So you may think the tea is expensive but they'll get you all you want. I always look forward to their menu - always something new using a lot of vegetarian basics. Occasionally the chef gets carried away with the spices but a brew will help that.

Parking can be a problem. I'm spoiled and don't like to pay to park. The bench seats swallow you up, but what the heck, a lot of people have been here before and from what it looks like a lot more will follow behind us.

A comfortable place to eat! Waiters/waitresses always quick. Of course, you won't find me there on half prce wine nights. I prefer it when a restaurant is not full. There are plenty of times to enjoy a restaurant when the kitchen is not slammed.
