Tasty food but not fancy, but very nice staff Great for a casual breakfast or sandwich at lunch. Good salads and a place to eat when it's not raining

"usual wait" varies hugely w/ time of day, events, &weather. Rare to wait longer than 10-15 min at Sunflower. If day is gorgeous & there's an event in town, you can always get take-out from the Basque Boulangerie and eat in... More
