I wasn't all that impressed with my visit. This was in Sept 2015... The meal I ordered was so salty I couldn't eat it. So was my dinner date's meal. Maybe it was just a bad night for the chef? The staff were not very helpful when we complained about the food. Ended up having to eat elsewhere. It was... More

I have been here multiple times and have enjoyed it each time. The food is always fresh and the service is always great. Although it is a bit of a drive for me, I sometimes go to CB just to eat here. I definitely recommend this place for breakfast. They also serve great local coffee.

A must stop for lunch when we are in town. Locally sourced ingredients makes for excellent quality meals. The house-made Mac & Cheese as well as the grilled cheese sandwich are delish. Salads are another good option. Portions aren't huge, prices are reasonable for Crested Butte. Lots of Colorado beers available, but not on tap FYI.

Cute little restaurant with fantastic food. Really enjoyed the tomato soup and my husband had black bean soup which was also yummy. They also service freshly prepared sandwiches. Highly recommended.

The Sunflower Deli is a great option in CB for every meal. Their breakfast options are delicious and filling. The mac and cheese is better than my mom's ever was - she is a great cook so keep that in mind. All of their ingredients are wholesome and fresh. Don't miss this gem!

The best food in CB hands down. Service is impeccable. Prices are fair. Local produce and free range local beef. Great atmosphere. My favorite fine dining experience in CB.

My husband and I made a dinner reservation without knowing what to expect. We did not think much of it and thought it was more of a lunch and snack type of place. We were very pleasantly surprised when we arrived. First of all the atmosphere (dimmed lights and rustic decor) was nice, the staff was very friendly and entertaining... More

This place is two restaurants in one. One set of owners runs breakfast and lunch and another dinner. Lunch is good, but let me rave about dinner. Usually there are about 5-7 small initial plates of nibbles, followed by 5-6 generous appetizer selections , followed by 3-4 main dishes, all designed to be shared or eaten by yourself. Food quality... More

Have heard lots of buzz about Supper at Sunflower so finally had to check it out. For the most part, the food was really good, but one of the dishes we had was just so-so. The menu had some really unique offerings. The fact that the chef is not afraid to have some edgy items on the menu is refreshing....the... More

Since we were last here, our opinion has gone down and so has the food. Everything was greasy! Even the bacon, if you can believe that! Service was the same, but not the food. I do not know if the cook is different. No return visits in our plans.
