Love this place! must go for a vegan when in HOTLANTA - Edit

We made a reservation. From outside the Cafe Sunflower does not look spectacular but inside it is really pretty, upscale, modern and nice. The food and the drinks were fantastic. We enjoyed our stay a lot. Would come back! I personally really fell in love with the chocolate raspberry ganache cake...yum!

Pros: chic upscale, food, parking

Non-Vegans Will Never Know - Edit

Great place to introduce non-vegans to vegan and vegetarian foods! The food is so freaking fabulous at this place that non-vegans would never even know they’re eating plant-based foods if nobody told them! Amazingly, everything on the menu is delicious! My family and I have yet to find any dish we wouldn’t order again. ❤️❤️❤️

Pros: Great Variety , Awesome Desserts , Great Atmosphere (esp date nights)

Cons: Location (maybe)

Best brunch I've ever had - Edit

My partner and I had the most memorable meals of our lives at this restaurant. We went for Sunday brunch and would highly recommend it. Even though we arrived close to the closing time, we were seated and served within 10 minutes. She ordered the tofu benedict and I had the chicken biscuit. They were both delicious, well-balanced and fairly priced. We are both vegan but would bring non-vegan friends here because the food is so amazing. We were too full for desert but the options looked incredible. Next time we are in Atlanta, we will have to come back!

Pros: Delicious brunch, Good value, Nice vibe

Good food - Edit

This restaurant had a great atmosphere. My mom and I shared the spring rolls. They were okay but way too expensive for 2 tiny rolls.
I ordered the Portabella mushroom melt with daiya cheese (only available at lunchtime). It was great but not worth the $13 price tag. My mom ordered steamed dumplings with were bland and not very good at all, especially for $9 for 6 small dumplings. Finally, we finished off with vanilla and espresso vegan gelato. EXTREMELY small serving. Pretty good though.

Pros: Everything can be made vegan, attentive waiters, good atmosphere

Cons: Expensive, Small servings

wonderful brunch - Edit

i went with three colleagues of mine. only one of them are vegetarian. the food blew us away. my friend & i had the chicken biscuit with the tofu scramble, potatoes, & kale. the jalapeño fig jelly on the biscuit is to die for. i also need their tofu scramble recipe. it tastes better than real eggs. my other friends enjoyed their food as well one got chicken and waffles & the other got like a tofu benedict kind of dish. the bottle of wine was devine too a french rose.

Pros: food, attentive waiters, great wine.

Cons: soy, needs more organic options

Nice intimate place - Edit

I usually host birthday parties here or go on special dates. They are all vegan but I am gluten free and although I order gluten free, I often have an allergy attack after visiting here.

I traveled down the rabbit hole once when their pumpkin spice latte triggered me to question their ingredients.

By the ambiance and it being an all vegan restaurant, I assumed they'd be using quality ingredients.

I learned in the rabbit hole that there is no actual pumpkin inside of the latte and instead it was artificially flavored with a syrup that they were so kind to show me the bottle of. Gasp, for air and clutching my pearls.

That makes me leery of eating here because their overall standards aren't in alignment with mine.

I wish they'd raise their standards alot on the quality of products they use. Its not just about being vegan, but lets be healthy too please.

Pros: Intimate ambiance, All vegan, Menu is vast

Cons: low quality ingredients, uses artificial flavors

Expensive but delicious - Edit

My husband and I go here on our anniversaries only, mostly because there's usually a long wait and it's extremely expensive. Most of their dishes have soy in them. The ones that don't are extremely delicious.

Pros: Good flavor

Cons: Lots of soy in their dishes, Expensive!!!

A gem in Buckhead - Edit

While visiting Atlanta, we were lucky enough to get a reservation at Cafe Sunflower. Our server, Leigh was outstanding and lead us through the menu brilliantly. Our portobello sliders were so good and fun to eat, just enough as an appetizer. I had the cauliflower Marsala and he had the seitan marsala, both delicious. Huge portions, but all healthy (save for them using a bit of oil).

Pros: Beautiful environment, Great Service

More than just a cafe - Edit

When I hear the term "cafe," I expect something fairly casual. But Sunflower Cafe is actually a fairly upscale restaurant, with premium vegan food selections and premium pricing.

Sunflower Cafe reminds me a lot of Laughing Seed Cafe in Asheville.

I was glad to be able to order local, organic hot tea, which was served in a pot.

For dinner, I ordered one of the daily specials: "Tilapia Style Peach Tofu," $18. Grilled tofu, cauliflower & butternut squash mash, steamed veggies (carrots + broccoli), mango peach Port wine sauce. The presentation was very nice, and the taste was excellent--but I was surprised by the small portion size. Still, I know that part of what I'm paying for is the labor that goes into creating such a fancy vegan dish.

I was tempted to order the other special of the day: Chimichuri Seitan Steak.

The menu was filled with lots of great-sounding offerings, including about a dozen "Starters" plus various types of salad.

For dessert, my server brought out a plate showing about eight different types of cakes/pies--all vegan--such as German chocolate cake, key lime pie, etc. I had to use all my willpower to pass them up.

I was impressed by the Dr. Bronner's liquid soap in the bathroom.

If I ever come to Atlanta again, I'll be sure to dine at Sunflower Cafe.

Pros: Many vegan selections, Excellent food

Cons: Small portions, Fairly high prices

Beware - Edit

If healthy vegetarian is what you seek, be aware that this spot uses poison in their foods. All vegetarian and vegan spots do not adhere to healthy diets. Metabisulfites in the tortillias they use is a clear example. I know, because I visited and told them of this allergy and asked. The owner admitted the ingredient was in this food item. Cheap ingredients and charging premium prices. Very deceptive....and unhealthy. Be afraid, be very afraid. When are we ever going to get with food integrity. I was livid with this place because I've dined here for years and put up with the bad service on top of the ridiculous prices just to have an outting. Never again.

Best Brunch in Atlanta - Edit

I have been to Cafe Sunflower several times, and until now, the main reason to go was their amazing strawberry cake. However, my friends and I went for brunch recently, and it is even better than the brunch at Soul Vegetarian (and that is a tall order)! I highly recommend the blueberry pancakes, which my omni friend said were the best she'd ever had, and the tofu omelette.

Pros: Friendly Staff, Excellent Food, Prompt Service

Cons: A Little Pricey, Make Reservations, No Cake on Sundays

Friendly and fresh - Edit

The restaurant was an upscale environment with a creative special for Halloween. There were too many "great sounding" options for one visit! We chose the Dracula special which was three sliders each with a different take on vegetarian options. Mushroom cap with special spicy sauce; roasted beet with kimchi; and a hummus patty with lettuce and tomato. All were subtle and unique. As a side, we chose the crispy brussels sprouts served with Mao sauce. We wished the sprouts would have been less covered in batter but they were tasty. As a finish, all desserts were vegan and there were nine cakes form which to choose. We opted for ultimate chocolate and it was worth it. We'll be back! Service was suberbly focused and helpful.

Pros: Excellent food, Vegan options, Friendly staff
