Charlotte's favorite
artisanal bakery

Locally made in small batches

Sunflour is a family owned bakery and cafe dedicated to scratch baking in small batches everyday. At Sunflour, our food is prepared on site without chemicals, artificial flavorings, preservatives, dough conditioners, bleached or bromated flour. We only use ingredients with names you can pronounce. You can trace back to origin all of our ingredients and we adapt our menu seasonally to support local produce vendors.

Sunflour embraces transparency as Charlotte’s original Exhibition Bakery where you can step right up to the glass and see how we create your food. Have a peek from the viewing gallery located in the hallway and watch our master bakers and cooks in action!

Organic coffee

Our coffee is fairly traded, organic and freshly roasted in Durham, North Carolina by Counter Culture Coffee. We proudly brew seasonal single-origin beans from specific Counter Culture partner farmers. Deriving beans from single sources allows Counter Culture to guarantee the utmost quality in organic coffee, preserve the distinct flavors of coffee regions around the world and ensure fair wages to partnering farmers. A staple at Sunflour is our use of Counter Culture’s Big Trouble espresso beans, inspired by the classic caffe dolce or "sweet coffee" tradition of Central Italy. Each shot is sweet and mild with notes of caramel, hazelnut and rich dark chocolate. All of our espresso drinks are doubles that come in one size to stay true to traditional proportions.

Amazing croissants

There’s nothing quite like a fresh and flaky croissant to get your mouth watering. These delicate French pastries are the pride and joy of the Sunflourmenu. Our croissants are prepared completely from scratch and you can rest assured that the combination of European style butter and our fermented dough will rival any croissant you have evereaten. Each croissant is fashioned in a three day fermentation and lamination process that forms 27 luscious layers of dough and butter— the only way it can get so magically flaky. Don’t believe it? Come in and try for yourself. They are spectacular on their own, as part of a breakfast sandwich or treat yourself to one of our flavored varieties such as chocolate or almond. You deserve a taste of Paris every now and then!
