Unassuming location in a strip mall off HWY 98 in Navarre, this restaurant offers surprisingly quality food at reasonable prices. Interesting dishes - mango shrimp taco appetizers - and the tortilla soup is outstanding. Spice level negotiable. I generally order Santa Fe Enchiladas with chicken and never disappointed. Shrimp Enchiladas verde (available at dinner only) are fantastic. Fish tacos (Mahi)... More

First let me start by saying, I do not usually like Mexican food. My father and boyfriend wanted to try this place out. The place is very very clean with a nice welcoming staff. The service is very great! I actually really liked the food selection here, and the prices are very reasonable. We went back a second time before... More

Ignore all the negative reviews. If you are like me, you scroll through these reviews to read, specifically, the bad ones. The negative reviews a quite mind-boggling. The food here is exceptional. The ingredients are fresh. Nothing comes out of a can. They do not use lard. If you love chimi's, let me put it to you like this. I... More

We have always heard good things about the Cactus Flower Cafe and went there one time before with no problem but last night was different. My husband had the enchiladas with pork and I had the blue crab special w/ salad and tortilla soup. We shared a guacamole appetizer. He ordered sweet tea and I had sangria. Aside from the... More

The staff was very friendly and the food was simply amazing. Remember this is California Mexican so don't expect raditonal Mexican food. The guacamole was fresh and wonderful and the enchiladas with the mole was the best I have ever had. We had plenty between us to bring an entire plate home. My son got the burrito and this thing...

Disappointed with the free chips coz it was store bought. The free salsa was good though. Our waitress was very attentive & our food was yummy.

This is one of my most favorite place to in the Navarre area. It is a California Tex Mex style food. The service is wonderful and the food is outstanding. Must stop when in Navarre area.

The food here was pretty good. I had the burrito which was a very large portion and tasted great. I wasn't crazy about the salsa. I've had better at many other Mexican restaurants. My only complaint is that it is rather small inside. I wouldn't recommend it for large groups or families with more than one child. You're going to... More

We found the Cactus Flower Cafe on TripAdvisor and was not disappointed. I'd highly recommend the chicken enchiladas verdes as well as the Mexican wedding cake. Our waitress, Elizabeth, was wonderful as well. Very knowledgeable and efficient.

While looking for a good local restaurant on our way to our vacation rental, we chanced upon the reviews of the Cactus Flower. This was a year ago and we still remember the great food and service. They were very accommodating of my granddaughter, as well. If we had not taken a different route this year, we would have loved... More
