While visiting a different restaurant in Nashville, a local suggested we try Sunflower Cafe’s BBQ. We are vegan and hadn’t had BBQ in Nashville yet, so we went to Sunflower looking to fill that void.

The restaurant is 100% vegan, with other dietary choices/sensitivities in mind. They do everything a la cart/cafeteria style, so you can pick whatever you like - entrees or sides - and build your own meal. You can see many of your options, and sample them too!

They had a happy hour menu as well with items like quesadillas and nachos.

There was beer, soda, juice, Switters iced cofffee, and local komboocha available.

The food was incredible, and the service was too. We spoke to a few of the people working, and they were warm, and friendly and made a genuine effort to get to know my boyfriend and I. We told them it was our first time, and they were so patient and explained everything to us.

There was plenty of outdoor dining area, but we chose to sit inside. We tried a lot, and got some food to go as well.

We tried the lasagna, sweet potato casserole, traditional BBQ, Tempeh BBQ, spinach and mushroom quesadilla, oatmeal cookie parfait, beans, collards, and asparagus. Everything was fresh, and flavorful.

We brought out to go food to the Nashville International Airport, on our way out of town, and the bag got stopped on its way through the x-ray machine. The TSA agent hand checking the bag asked me where it was from, and when I told him “Sunflower Cafe” he said he knew it. He had never been but someone came through earlier with food from there as well, and it smelt so good he recognized the smell of our food.

Cant wait to go back!

This is a great spot to eat vegan/GF/dairy free/etc. The food is served cafeteria-style so you can see everything before you pick what you want. Every day they have a highlighted meal but I'm kind of addicted to their veggie burgers, particularly the bahn mi style burger. The food is quite filling for vegan fare so come hungry! They also have a few great kombuchas on tap, a unique selection of awesome vegan desserts, and they sell beer in bottles and cans. If the weather is good, there's a nice porch where you can sit. Check it out!

This may be very well be the best vegetarian restaurant in Nashville. BUT, Nashville is not a place for vegetarian restaurants. Unfortunately I am glad to see they are trying but it's not where it needs to be. I got a bowl with tofu ginger sauce, kale and brown rice. Brown rice was very hard, the sauce was indigestible and kale was extremely chewy. I burped for close to two hours after I was able to eat few a little bit of it. My try had ants on it as well (Not very good) and the kitchen ventilation was inadequate. I ended up changing my t-shirt right after. I am giving two starts and being very generous about it because I like people who are vegetarian (and the staff was friendly), otherwise it would have have been 1 star. It is also too expensive for the quality. They need a review by a chef.
