Sunflower Drive In
To paraphrase from The Graduate, we just have one word for you: Nutburger. Yes! Sunflower, a no-frills vegan and vegetarian cousin to the flat-roof, walk-up-window venues of yesteryear, tops its wildly-popular nut patty with a succulent ketchup-mustard-mayonnaise sauce and the freshest produce this side of Mr. McGregor’s garden. Order grilled cheese between multigrain bread (they also have gluten-free buns and bread), a side of chips and house-made salsa for $1.29, and one of 11 fruit smoothies, or explore the profusely “tastes good, good for you” menu that includes nutty tacos and falafels. Sit inside at a communal tree-slab table or outside at picnic benches, or venture beyond the chicken-patrolled blacktop to Village Park and its kids’ play area. Phone-in orders take about 20 minutes.
