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

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
