Our first trip to Mentone, AL and had the pleasure of eating at the Wildflower Cafe. A very good restaurant with an eclectic decor. I loved the waitress' recommendation of the house specialty, Tomato Pie. The food was very good as well as the service. We will definitely eat here again on our next... read more

Ate here during a Mardi Gras trip to Mentone. Atmosphere was nice- cute little quirky place. Told my family we needed to eat here because I had read such great reviews. Friendly staff. Ordered sweet potato biscuits which were very good. I ordered a Costa Rican chicken wrap which was one of the specials that day. As soon as I... More

My husband and I were seated and given our drinks, the server took our order, and then the service was OVER!! From that point on we were ignored. We sat there for almost an hour while every single table around us was given their food. I ordered a chicken salad sandwich and my husband ordered a chicken salad wrap. Last... More

We had been to the area countless times, but never had eaten here. We love folk art, so the ambiance was great. My wife bought a few items. Lunch was very good and the service was good. It had a romantic feel to it.

We ALWAYS eat here when in Mentone. We even plan our trips in this area to go through Mentone just so we can eat at the Wildflower. Food is SOOOOO good. A really eclectic atmosphere and wonderful people.

Food was good. I had the Brunch Special-ham and cheese quiche, slice of tomato pie, fruit, and a crepe with strawberry purée. **Tomato pie is a combination of tomatoes onions herbs and cheese baked in a pie shell. Sounds odd but it's really tasty. The food was served warm and a nice plate presentation. I had coffee which waned me... More

This place is not what you would expect in a small town. Food is very good and not your average cuisine, very fresh and innovative!

Rather a unique restaurant and probably one of the best in this small town. I didn't have high expectations, because Mentone really is a tourist town, but the burger was surprisingly delicious. I had French onion soup to start, since I was very hungry and the menu does specify that there is a 20 minute cook time because the burger... More

Stopped by the Wildflower Cafe at the suggestion of a friend. So glad we listened to his recommendation. Cute storefront in a quaint little town. Whether you want a delicious sandwich, salad, soup or burger, you have to stop and eat here. The hamburger is well cooked and prepared with tasty beef. Served with potato chips, pickle and either a... More

Wonderful building. Old house turned into a large group of dining rooms in every room of the original house. Very friendly staff with smiling faces. Leisurely dinner with excellent food with many choices.
