Cafe Sunflower will take root in south Buckhead August 15. Located at 2140 Peachtree Road, the upscale vegetarian restaurant will replace Sweet Potato.

It will be the second location for owner Lin Sun, who opened the original Cafe Sunflower in Sandy Springs in October 1994. She will be joined at the Buckhead restaurant by her husband Edward Sun and business partner Amy Heard.

“There is great demand for this in the Buckhead and midtown area,” Lin Sun said.

The restaurant, which seats 80, will be open for lunch and dinner Monday through Saturday. Prices will range between $6 and $9 for lunch, and between $10 and $15 for dinner. Reservations will be accepted for both meals.

The menu, which is being developed, will include dishes made from whole grains as well as organic and fancy vegetables. A selection of custom-made, “totally vegan” desserts, which include no egg or dairy products, will be offered. The decor of the new restaurant, designed by Asheville, N.C., artist Vadim Baraev, will include wood and aluminum sculpted panels to create a natural, garden-like atmosphere.
