I decided to try out a local breakfast spot that the one of the hotel employees recommended. Unlike the seafood restaurants, I did not search any reviews of Sunflower Bakery. The restaurant was approximately 10 minutes from the hotel. It was located in a residential neighborhood which significantly limited parking.
The main doors open into a long hallway. On the left is a gift shop, and overflow seating.
To the right was the main seating area and the bakery.
The hostess stand was located in the middle of the long hallway. There is usually a wait, but not for us as we were quickly shown our seat.
The mood in restaurant was lively, despite it being shortly before 9am. I appreciated the conversations, they were loud but not obnoxious. The waiter approached the table one minute after us and provided menus.
I quickly ordered what I thought was a mimosa bucket, only to find out that the restaurant does not put the champagne nor juice on ice.
Everything on the menu sounded delicious. I appreciated the fact that I could have pasta for breakfast, if I chose (what a time to be alive. LOL). With so many options, I ordered a few dishes. The appetizer was one of the best cinnamon rolls that I had ever eaten, followed by salmon benedict, and sausage with grits. The food took 15 minutes to arrive. It was well worth the wait because everything was delicious.
Sunflower Bakery was one of the best restaurants that I have ever visited. The staff were friendly and attentive, while the food was fresh and delicious. I will definitely visit this place when I return to Galveston and you should as well. If nothing else, stop by the restaurant to grab a cinnamon roll.
