Sunflower Cafe

Here's a new one to add to the Dining in Charleston list:

Sunflower Cafe, 2366 Ashley River Road (Highway 61): Don't understimate this small, unassuming looking restaurant tucked away in the corner of an old strip mall off of Ashley River Road. It looks like it would be a standard pancake-breakfast, meat-and-three lunch kind of place. But, the food is really fantastic.

The breakfast menu boasts a series of eggs benedict variations (including country ham and crab), rich omlets, beignets, and french toast. For lunch, there's steak sandwiches made not with some cheap cut but tender filet(!), plus chicken and crabcake croissants, and a range of fresh salads.

The Sunflower is off the beaten path--way down Highway 61 past I-526. But, if you are heading out to Drayton Hall or Middleton Place, drop in and give it a try for breakfast or lunch (they close at 2:30 PM). It's one of my new West Ashley favorites.
