Okay. One thing is clear - if you are a group of more than four forget about it. The wait is too long plus the seating is going to be awkward. Our group of 9 was hard to handle by the restaurant. Having said that, the food is certainly of high quality. The steamer omelets are worth a try -... More

First of I was excited because I saw this place on Triple D through the foodnetwork channel. Once I got there I was greeted by a waitress and she was quite friendly. Then I came to the counter and was looking at this big board they have on the wall and was sort of undecided on what I wanted so... More

I went in for breakfast and placed an order to-go. It took awhile to get my food but I was okay with that as the place was packed and it just meant they were making it fresh. I was a little disappointed with how greasy the food was when I got it back to our hotel. As an "organic" cafe,... More

When we walked to the Wild Plum, the manager greeted kindly at the door and our server Garrett was soo helpful and very friendly. If I could chose one word for the food it would be...... Wow!! All food and coffee was organic and so outstanding. Probably one of the best hardy breakfast my family has ever eaten at! Food... More

This restaurant is simply fantastic. I was a bit hesitant by some TripAdvisor reviews about the staff, but I think they have really taken those issues into consideration because they were all so friendly and helpful. Our waiter Garett was so nice and checked on us every few minutes. I can't even begin to tell how amazing the food is!... More

The restaurant needs a face lift, but the food was good. Would like to see more on the menu. The cook has obviously taken culinary classes.

We love this place, very down to earth, freshly baked food - the pastries are scrumptious & the breakfast burrito is great.

We had a very delicious breakfast at The Wild Plum. Although it was very busy, the staff were courteous and attentive. We enjoyed wonderful fresh, local fruit and a delicious pastry. The seating is limited but this is a lovely little restaurant that I can highly recommend.
