Cafe Sunflower, Vegetarian Restaurant in Atlanta

Recently we had been to an amazing vegetarian restaurant, Café Sunflower in Sandy Springs. We usually to go to Indian restaurants, but once in a while, my husband, son and I like to explore other cuisines.

Café Sunflower is a very popular vegetarian restaurant serving Atlanta, since 1994. Café Sunflower has Asian , Caribbean and Mediterranean dishes.

For Starters, we had Basil rolls, and they were so good.  I relished eating basil rolls, bursting with fresh vegetables and flavors with peanut sauce. My son also loved the basil rolls and peanut sauce.
For Entrée, I had Stir Fry Vegetables with Tofu. The broccoli and snow peas were so tender, and the brown rice tasted so good. My husband ate, Portbello Mushroom Wrap, and he said the taste was awesome! My son ate Jamaican Black Bean Cakes, and when I asked him about the taste , he gestured "thumbs-up" .

For the Desserts, variety of vegan cakes adorned the shelves. We did not try the cakes, but next time we will try their vegan cakes.
