Passing through Cherokee, it was lunch time, google said Sassy Sunflowers was a good lunch choice. Correct! Wife and I had a great sandwich with home made rosemary bread. Friendly, local owned, small bakery. Well worth the stop. Beats a chain restaurant every time!

You would do better calling them directly. Perhaps they have a menu posted online, as well.
