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

What a wonderful dining experience! Dinner at the Sunflower was unique with the wait staff being awesome! The owner was our waiter & provided great service, a personal touch, humor, awareness & spirit. The food & wine were excellent! Writing about the experience to detail what a wonderful time we had would take SO MUCH time, as each moment needed... More

Great lunch place for soup, salad, Mac n cheese basics. Average portion sizes and very reasonable price point. For lunch you have half options which is great if you wanna do a half soup half sandwich kind of thing. Patio has great mellow laid back vibe with great blue grass/jazz on when we were there. Good for families..

The four of us friends came just about lunch time, and ended up having a late breakfast- eggs benedict with lemon hollandaise and arugula...plus a couple of strips of local bacon on top! It was really really good.. could have had a couple more even.. It was slight expensive, but that comes with the region of beautiful skies, mountains and... More

We LOVE The Sunflower! It was such a special birthday celebration! How many restaurants have the owners, Natalie and Chris, serve their guests? Complete with birthday lights at our table, incredible appetizers waiting for us at our table, and wine we knew the evening was off to a fabulous start! We never ordered, they just brought out Their chef's incredible... More

We were traveling with our 2 less than perfect pooches so we wanted to grab a couple sandwiches and eat in our vehicle. The sandwiches were excellent (chicken salad for me and roast beef and blue cheese for the husband). They were a bit pricey but worth it. The sandwiches were put together pretty quickly so it wasn't a long... More

This is a cute place with great menu offerings for breakfast. The wait was long but we agreed to sit in the sun out front and got seated immediately -- and it was pleasant. Four of us ordered breakfast plates of one sort or another...and we were all surprised to see plate between the hashbrowns and the hungry man among... More

Our visit was to the restaurant for dinner. Very casual, fun, involved staff, including the owner waiting tables. If you're uptight or stuffy, stay away. Everyone working there was having fun. Our waitress sat at our table with us to enthusiastically describe every dish. We thought she was going to join us for dinner. The food came a little too... More

Perusal of several reviews will echo what I might write. Food is fresh--ever so fresh--and served with pride and punctuality. Good value in this tourist town. We'll be back, maybe before our week's vacation is up this time. (There are many wonderful eating places in Crested Butte and Mount Crested Butte.) There is a refreshing "pleasantness" about this little restaurant,... More
