Our Story

Welcome to the Sunflower Bakery & Cafe!

We have been making Galveston better for over 18 years, one mouth-watering dish at a time.

Since 1999 the Sunflower Bakery and Cafe has been serving amazing food created from scratch with the finest ingredients available to its happy customers. Since their humble beginnings as a small bakery on 16th and Church that served a few bakery items, cold sandwiches, and their famous tomato basil soup, they have always drawn a large crowd. In a couple of years their success allowed them to open a restaurant at a second location and offer an amazing dining experience that matched their delicious breakfasts and lunches. By focusing on food they want to eat themselves the owners Lisa and Harry Blair won over the crowds and before long there were long lines of loyal customers waiting to eat at both places. Needing more room they combined both businesses at their current location at 512 14th St. in January of 2006. Again the crowds nearly overwhelmed them and the new location brought in even more customers who had heard about the legendary food and excellent service.

In September of 2008 all of that was nearly lost when Hurricane Ike brought in 7 feet of water that destroyed everything in the restaurant down to the last spoon. Refusing to be bested Harry and Lisa started again, rebuilding the restaurant in record time and re-opening on December 16th, 2008 to record crowds and excellent reviews. The secret to their success is that they are chefs first and focus on making amazing food as well as creating a delightful experience for customers. By focusing on creating a business they could be proud of instead of making a profit they have build a loyal following that has far surpassed their wildest dreams.
