We ate here for breakfast twice- very good food and very reasonably priced. Everything is thoughtfully sourced, prepared and presented. The hollandaise sauce the best I've ever tried.

The Sunflower Deli is a nice quaint place that serves mainly soup and sandwiches. I actually love how small the menu is (easy to choose). Our waitress was very kind, the service was quick and we enjoyed our sandwiches. The butternut squash soup was excellent! A little pricy for sandwiches but we still enjoyed it very much. Also nice coffee... More

Was pointed here by a friend of mine, finally visited while in town for the Film Festival. My wife and I actually were able to have a romantic evening without our 3 yr old. We were seated upstairs on the 'balcony seat' which is romantic in itself. Everyone was friendly and lively. My wife says this was the freshest food... More

There should really be two entries on Trip Advisor for The Sunflower, as it is a co-op. One group runs it for breakfast and lunch and another for dinner. I have only eaten there once for breakfast and it was yummy, but my review will focus on Supper. Chris and Natalie are the most delightful people, as are their staff.... More

I loved this restaurant. The owner was charming and funny, the waitress was lovely. Great food, all farm to table. Added bonus that our waitress is also a budding pastry chef. We tried three amazing desserts that she had made that morning. The ambience is charming and cozy. The only issue to note is that it's best to make a... More

We had heard so many good things about Sunflower, we broke our no lunch rule and tried it near the end of our weekend stay. My wife had quiche and I tried the chicken pot pie. They were both delicious! The atmosphere is really nice, too, and we enjoyed sitting by a window and people-watching. There are two or three... More

Another love from Crested Butte. We've eaten several times here and I've never been disappointed. From breakfast to dinner -- I love the dinners. You get small plates of incredibly good food. And, it's a good value.

We stopped in on 9/18 for brunch on my daughter's recommendation and we had custom tasty coffee, great service and a full page of meal options. I had the a la carte. The potatoes were nicely roasted with a hint of jalapeño. The eggs were over a bit hard but the bacon was crispy and large and the muffin toasted... More

This such a cool place to have dinner. The owner waited on us and later his chef came out and chatted. We opted for several appetizers and dessert, choosing based on Chris' recommendation. What a creative, fun and delicious menu and welcoming atmosphere. We loved that no one tried to push us to buy more than we wanted and they... More
