Restaurant Review

Atlanta is a growing metro area and I am glad to write a review on a healthy establishment that I revisited this past week,Sunflower Cafe.

This restaurant is off Peachtree near Piedmont Hospital. The atmosphere is quaint with three dining areas, wood all around the tables and few booths.The ambience, as well as the price, suggest a date night or special occasion.The service was impeccable.

The menu is loaded with beverages, appetizers, and a variety of entrees. We chose for a starter avocado tacos and a lentil soup. This was the perfect way to start a meal. Our main dish consisted of a seitan steak with mash potatoes, fresh asparagus wrapped in a green sauce. The texture was amazing, very similar to roast beef. The waitress said they have a local supplier who specializes in texture. The potatoes were seasoned well with garlic. The portion was small, but the texture of the dish and presentation impressed me.

Our other dish was a fettuccini alfredo in a cashew based sauce with fresh vegetables sprinkled throughout. This was a solid dish but was not as impressive as the seitan steak.

On the walls were several citations from national organizations citing Sunflower Cafe Atlanta as a top ten place to eat without bothering your conscience. A top ten may be up to debate, but the presentation, and food texture were great. The portions were a little small for my taste, as I was wanting more, but I did not leave feeling “bogged” down, which is good. Overall if you need a special occasion, Cafe Sunflower gets a thumbs up.
