Openings: Sunflower Cafe on 2nd Avenue

Photo by Stacie Joy 

Sunflower debuted last week at 88 Second Ave. at Fifth Street. 

This is a sibling to the cafe of the same name on Third Avenue in Gramercy Park with the Instagram slogan "Let’s Brunch baby!

They serve some breakfast staples, lunch, and various coffee and drinks (menu here). 

Daily hours for now: 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Sunflower is owned and operated by the same folks as the previous tenant here, Eros, the Greek restaurant that quietly closed in August 2022. Eros took over for their diner concept, The Kitchen Sink, in September 2021.

Good for them so at least one less empty storefront. A bottomless drip coffee, NYU students incoming for hours in 3, 2,1. On the other hand, $20 avocado toast. Who remembers and yearns for the late great Cafe Orlan with the all pro staff, off sidewalk outside seating, and amazing breakfast special with organic eggs, home fries, salad, juice and cappuccino? At the end of their run not that long ago I think the highest price was $10 or 11.99. America, what has predatory late stage capitalism finally wrought on thy once sacred and vaunted breakfast deals?
