A must for vegetarians, but even meat-eaters will be tempted by some of the delicious offerings of this tasty Atlanta establishment. Organic ingredients are a given, and prices are a great deal for the amount of food.

I am not a vegan, or even a vegetarian, but for a vegan restaurant they manage to put out amazing, robust meals. They are so delicious and filling, you won't feel like you are missing anything, especially the meat.

The space is small enough to feel intimate and special. The wait staff reminds me of European waiters, like they are in it for life, this is a career or labor of love, not just a job.

The prices are reasonable, too. Comparable to a regular chain restaurant, but such a better quality of food. They may actually be slightly less expensive than the average restaurant.

I would love to eat here All... The... Time! Yum!

I hadn't been to Cafe Sunflower in a while, but was recently surprised to get to go there for my birthday. They were great about handling a large group, the service was good because we were well attended to, but not bothered by a hovering wait staff. The food was EXCELLENT! I think that I was the only vegetarian in the crowd (of 16), but everyone was surprised by how full they were and by how good the food was. I had the eggplant lasagne, and it was fabulous, fabulous, fabulous! It was a great experience!

I've known about Cafe Sunflower for many years, and recently went back for a friend's birthday after a several year absence. It was still just as good as I remembered. They have expanded their offerings to include vegan foods in addition to their vegetarian offerings, which is a rare find in Atlanta. The staff is friendly and accommodating. A must for any vegetarian!

The entree I ordered was the veggie fajitas which was pretty good. My boyfriend had the meatloaf which was a little better than mediocre but still pretty bland despite the asparagus sculpture created on his plate. Although I would probably go back to this place for some decent vegetarian food if the time allowed, the service was pretty much nonexistent. Our waiter came to our table twice. Once to take orders, and once because we practically had to trip him to get more drinks and our check. Someone else brought the food. He was only serving two other parties of two. I thought we were never going to get out of there. The artwork on the wall was pretty neat and very inspired by Jason Pollock, which created a relatively cool atmosphere. So in closing, I say, if you have an entire evening to spend sitting down to eat some pretty good vegetarian food, go for it. But I suggest bringing your own gallon of water to drink.

Pros: Food, atmosphere, artwork, parking

Cons: SERVICE?? Hello! Are we invisible?

I checked out Cafe Sunflower for the first time last night, and the food was great, everything tasted very fresh, and had beautiful presentation. Our server, however, was totally unattentive and kind of turned the experience into a bad one. We sat at our table FOREVER waiting on her to come around to bring our check, and then again waiting on her to run our cards. She didn't thank us for our patience, or apologize for the wait, she just kept smiling like everything was fine, and that was totally annoying.

I found this restaurant while looking for a dinner place for my college formal date who was a vegetarian. There are not really too many restaurants that advertise themselves as catering to vegetarians or vegans, but Cafe Sunflower jumped out when I did even a little research. I ordered one of those faux steaks that is made with something else and that tastes surprisingly like a real steak. My date was pleased with her meal as well (though I forget what she had). I would recommend this restaurant to vegetarians or vegans who are normally used to only having one or two menu options at other restaurants.

I have to say that I was rather disappointed with Cafe Sunflower in almost all respects. The staff is very friendly, but unfortunately, that is the only positive comment I have. The venue itself is not too bad, but it is rather small. The food leave much to be desired. The menu does a great job in overselling the actual items. My wife and I had appetizers, dinner and dessert, and I would say that neither of us enjoyed any of the courses. The food is very bland and rather tasteless. I have had much better vegetarian food for much less cost.

I had the pleasure of dining at Cafe Sunflower last week. The food was exceptional. It's such a nice change from come of the other vegetarian food in this city which is too heavily reliant upon deep friend textured vegetable protein and lots of sauce. The chefs at Sunflower value the tastes and textures of vegetables and feature dishes that are reliant upon the freshness and quality of well-picked produce. I had the Vegan Lasagne and my friend had the Summer Quinoa. Mine was the superior of the two.

Pros: Great food, competant attractive service, atmosphere, vegan options, desserts and wine list

Cons: A little expensive for dinners, though lunch is fairly priced...

This little spot at Brookwood Square, has a great sounding menu. Don't let the interior of this spot turn you off, the food will do that. The menu sounds so promising, tasty, and creative. But what arrives is tasteless, and a very small portion. Atlanta does have good Vegetarian options, like the one nearby, that's open 24hrs. Little Five Points area is very good also. But some of the Thai and Mexican options, will easily do the trick. The owner has an attitude, so beware!

Cons: Tasteless, Expensive & Small Portions!

Cafe Sunflower's position as top vegetarian in town can be chalked up to the lack of serious competition. The food is heavily oversold by the menu - descriptions seldom match the actual dish - and ridiculously overpriced for weak imitations of Cali cuisine and basic offerings from standard veggie cookbooks. The interior is in serious need of a makeover - think backstage at a high school theatre - and service is polite but unreliable. Verdict: Don't encourage them. Patronize a non-veggie restaurant and get the best veggie dish on the menu - you'll be happier and you'll be voting for more mainstream veggie fare.

They're fajitas and veggie burgers are amazing! My friend often calls and puts in the order and goes to pick it up. However, they do close at 2:30 and open back up again around 5:30? and they can be an inconvience, but the food is definitely worth it!

Went here with 7 other people on a weekday. It was empty when we arrived at 7, but it soon filled up. Plenty of different choices on the menu. I had the burrito which was the cheapest entre at $9 but it was more then I could eat and thats saying a lot. Everyones portion was quite large. I will definitely be coming back here to try the other items on the menu.

As a huge advocate of meat in all of its glory, I was a bit hesitant to try this place out, but somehow my new roommate convinced me to go (though I really didn't put up a fight). Turns out that the food and ambience was more than I expected. The music isn't really loud, and it's a nice, chill place to come relax and have good food. Our server wasn't absolutely wonderful, but still quick with service. The food I thought seemed overprice, but you get a lot of food. The raspberry chocolate mousse is not be missed, either.

Definitly the best vegetarian restaurant in town. The food is fun, diverse, and very flavorful. A great place to take non-veggie friends too. Service can be a bit slow, but it's never been bad.

Cafe Sunflower is my favorite vegetarian restaurant in Atlanta. It's a step above some of the more "hippie" places. The atmosphere in the small location is nice but can feel crowded. The food is top notch. Even non-veggie friends comment on how good it is. Try the Spring Rolls and Chocolate Cake.

Unlike the usual "hippie" vegetarian place, your non-vegetarian friends would actually be happy with this choice. Cool "loft-like" atmosphere with exposed pipes and bright paint in a shopping center off Peachtree. Food is artistically presented on colorful plates with creative garnishes. Wide selection of entrees, including vegan selections. Some employ meat substitutes to provide traditional entrees like "meatloaf" that taste close to the real thing...others include only the more typical vegetables, beans, and pastas. Service is efficient and friendly, and prices are moderate.

Excllent blend of spices with main ingredients. Everything on the menu is worth a try. Reasonable price for quantity of food. I especially like the fact that there is no smoking permitted in the restaurant.
