One of the BEST vegan restaurants on east coast!

I L-O-V-E-D this place! (Buckhead location) I don't live in atlanta and picked this restaurant solely based on a write up in Vegetarian Times, reviews online, and their website menu. I live in Philadelphia and wish we had this place up here too:) (We have Horizons so i can't complain!) I was going to visit a friend for her bday and me being vegan (she is vegetarian) wanted a new place with unique food and options for both of us. This place definitely fit the bill!
We had the fried green tomato appetizer (awesome) and split a house salad (wished we hadn't b/c it was nothing special, good but should have saved room for more dessert ha)to start. For entrees - She had the stuffed acorn squash and i had the walnut encrusted tofu cutlet. Both were excellent but we agreed the cutlet took top prize!! for dessert we shared a piece of the carrot cake and a slice of the chocolate cake.
The next night we ate at a nearby place and went BACK here to Cafe Sunflower for more dessert. We sampled more carrot cake of course, plus strawberry shortcake and a piece of the peanut butter chocolate mouse cake (there were 3 of us this night i promise ha). AHH all were good but the carrot cake takes best dessert prize For Sure!
I'm a bit puzzled by folks posting saying it was way too expensive. I mean sure its not cheap. But for a nice evening out, i thought the prices were right at any average dinner place out. Also, I had mapquested the directions from her place and drove myself. We found it just fine - they even give more specific directions on their website if needed.
The ambiance was great! nice decor and unique lighting. Waiters were dressed nicely as well in white button ups with black slacks and service was good. I can't wait until i have the opportunity to go back someday!!
Great Vegan food and desserts!, Easy to find and easy parking, Wonderful Ambiance
