The first European explorers set sail with hopes of finding new, exotic spices to placate the palates of epicurious monarchs, but all they found were heaps of boring, inedible gold. Pick up where they left off by broadening your mouth's horizons with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $25 worth of healthy sandwiches, tacos, drinks, and more at Sunflowers Café, located in front of the Seaboard Station shopping area. Today’s deal is only valid for dinner, which is served Wednesday through Saturday from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Sunflowers Café’s creative culinary artisans have served up tasty, well-presented dishes in an intimate setting for 27 years. Latin zest and vegetarian touches pepper their fresh dinner menu, which brings together soups, salads, tacos, and seafood in a culinary harmony unseen since the California Raisins dominated the airwaves. The rich, moist Mexican cornbread is tinged with jalapenos and served hot with a piquant cherry-balsamic dipping sauce ($5), which is a tasty lead-in to the herb-encrusted salmon tacos, served either alone with slaw ($9) or as a meal with slaw, black beans, and rice ($13). Savory entrees such as the grilled Pamlico County shrimp tap-dance on tongues when paired with mango-pineapple salsa ($16), and the black-bean burger emcees a tummy-tickling variety show featuring pepperjack cheese, salsa, Mexican slaw, and Ed McMahon’s iconic jackhammer routine ($9). The setting is cozy and intimate—its pleasant light-yellow walls and framed photographs cocooning wooden tables and chairs and its attentive wait staff of butterflies.
- I've never had a bad meal here- affordable, fresh and fun offerings. – Jim, Urbanspoon
- I love the wonderful atmosphere at Sunflower's. It's homey and artsy. The food is fabulous. It's got a wonderful selection of vegetarian food which is perfect for me and my family but also has a good selection for the non-vegetarian. – newbie35, Citysearch
