“Better than anticipated”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

We had lunch at the Sunflower Caffe. It was recommended by the massage therapists we had just seen. We were pleasantly surprised by the ambiance of the back patio. Our sandwiches were fabulous. I allowed myself to eat a croissant and it was SO worth it. Highly recommended for a casual lunching experience.

“What's so good?”
Reviewed 13 July 2014 via mobile

Had the white sangria....Very bitter needed 2 packs of sugar. Southwestern Cobb salad was crisp but bland. Cheese plate mostly 3 large pieces of bread. Staff friendly. Not worth the $55 for two.

“Worth the stop”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

First there are many places to choose on the square, I am just glad we chose this one. For the first time we both had the same thing. A roasted duck sandwich, with caramelized onions. Absolutely incredible, not tasting gamy or dried out. The salad was delicious, so fresh and light. I washed mine down with their Sangria and you need to have that. Good price for a great meal. Be sure to eat outside around the back, although sitting on the front and facing the square you can see what is going by the courtyard is a space that would leave you almost wanting to forget that you need to get back in the van to finish the wine tour. Food service a little slow. We were there in the midst of lunch time. Good to note that locals eat there, always a good sign.

“Pleasant stop for a snack”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

We stopped at the Sunflower for a cheese plate and cool drinks upon arrival in Sonoma, our last stop before heading home. It was a pleasant outdoor cafe, out of the glorious, albeit hot sun! The cheese tray was a perfect pick-me-up, in lieu of lunch. Just the right size for two people. Perfect.

“Fresh food on the plaza”
Reviewed 4 July 2014 via mobile

I was really impressed with the freshness of the food at this cafe. The salad dressing was delicious and unique with its hints of cilantro. Even though it was in the 90, I tried their tomato soup, and I was not disappointed. There is not a lot of indoor seating, but the cafe does have some additional tables outside. The cafe does have a line at lunch.
