I'm using CloudFlare right now. Can Varnish still help to improve the performance of my site?

Yes, it could still help. Although CloudFlare caches static content, it doesn't cache dynamic content served by your server, which could be of benefit as covered here.

Some methods to use both in conjunction are covered here and here.


Just a quick correction:

CloudFlare won't cache dynamic content by default. You can, however, use PageRules to cache dynamic content (use with some care).
