My friend and I decided to meet in Sonoma for breakfast and I said let's try the Sunflower Caffe. It was a little rainy so we ate inside. Since you order your food at the counter then find a table, I had my friend order while I secured a table. We both ordered the smoked ham omelet. To be honest,... More

My wife and I were visiting the NAPA area for the weekend (we drove up from Orange County) and we made our way to Sonoma on Sunday morning. After doing some sight seeing we finally settled on a place to eat. It was about 11:15 AM so really the choices were kind of limited as there weren't to many places... More

At the recommendation of the"local" young man at the front desk of Renaissance Lodge, we had "brunch" at The Sunflower. What a delightful find. Orders are taken at the counter and brought to your table. Everything was super fresh.....the apple juice was the best I'd ever tasted, rich and dark, not the watery stuff from the grocery store. The restaurant... More

We ate here after a morning trip to a local vineyard and winery. It was a lovely spot overlooking the square. The service was friendly, the meals well priced and very tasty. I had a lovely lunch with my family each and would recommend it for a relaxed family lunch.

So glad we had breakfast here. Very accommodating for food allergies and diet restrictions. Gluten free bread available. Delicious maple pecan sausage! Beautiful garden patio in the back with a fountain and lush plantings everywhere! I had a veggie wrap- loaded with fresh spinach, beans, cilantro,etc. They cook with local organic foods. Everything was delicious. My husband got an egg... More

You can get a PERFECT soft boiled egg at Sunflower Cafe, with crispy warm toast and a side of delicately flavored house made jam. Add a frothy, hot, cafe latte and you're good to go. Of course, there are other delicious foods to eat, and over the course of time, I'll probably try them all, as I live in town.... More

The food is fresh and delicious and the outdoor seating areas is gorgeous. I had the avocado and egg sandwich and it was very tasty, especially the bread. There some healthy options too. The yogurt and granola bowl is fabulous.

Sometimes you simply want to grab a quick bite to eat in a casual environment (which can be a bit of a challenge to find in Sonoma). Place your order at the front counter, grab your number and head to the patio in the rear. Food is fresh, prepared and presented well. Enjoy.

Thank P K
