Sunflower Cafe

The Sunflower Cafe first opened in the summer of 2017 by Cheryl Zamelis with much support from her husband Doug and her family. We are open now and are looking forward to this season! A sunny cafe in Springfield Center, New York, specializing in from-scratch, locally sourced comfort foods. Serving breakfast and lunch in a friendly, family owned atmosphere, with take out options available. Serving breakfast and lunch, we offer local ingredients including elk, sausage and bacon from Crum Creek Farms (12 miles down the road), our own Sunflower Cafe blend of coffee from Stagecoach, eggs and maple syrup from Mihulka Farms (2 miles around the corner). Also serving goat cheese from Windy Creek Goat Dairy, cheddar cheese from Spurbeck's and local produce during the growing season from Heller's Farms. As the weather allows we have outdoor seating surrounded by sunflowers! We are a great destination for bicyclists riding up Route 80 from Cooperstown for a bite to eat! We also offer take-out in an easy to carry lunch box for picnickers, boaters, Glimmerglass opera patrons and for our local business community! And don't forget to check out our deli cheese case for cheese platters for entertaining or pick a cheese for your "Build your own Grilled Cheese"! Remember, "It's Always Sunny in Springfield!"
