The polenta was OK. My husband had the turkey burger, he said it was just OK. Processed cheese and iceburg lettuce. The service was just OK. We would not come back.

The place is amazing for breakfast and lunch, the food is delicious, they have a bakery too. It has a very homie vibe. It is a local restaurant too, so it is very original. Great place to spend time with friends and family.

My family of four had an amazing pre-cruise breakfast. We had the Brie and Prosciutto Omelet, the Chico's Breakfast, and a delicious belgium waffle with berries. All excellent! Wonderful service.

I ordered the “little breakfast” of 2 eggs, bacon, potatoes & 7 grain toast & it was delicious. My husband ordered the carne guisada with eggs & his meal was cold!!! Need to make sure food is at least warm before serving!

I think that Sunflower will customize a cake, if by that you mean decorating one for a special occasion. Pattycakes, a couple of blocks away and also on 14th Street, does customized cakes. Both bakeries are good.
