A little pricey because of the location in Highlands?

We thought the food was very good to excellent on some dishes. Overall it was a great place to have lunch or dinner! Expect to pay a little more than average for each dish. Beer and wine selection were excellent.

We have eaten here a couple of times and not been disappointed- The location is convenient to downtown and the place has a nice outdoor seating area. The food is really good wholesome cooking with no frills. The pot Roast is great! my wife had trout which was well prepared and well complimented wit the sides. The ambiance is nice,... More

The food is great without being pompous. The wait staff is personable, friendly, and attentive. Everyone at our table loved the food.

I used to absolutely CRAVE these quesadillas. Absolutely delicious!!! Service was a little slow every time that I went, but nothing that ruins the visit. I would recommend any day of the week!

We loved the Wild Thyme Cafe, situated in an upscale shopping center. Seating is available inside or out (we prefer outside, but no seats available at that time) Great service, friendly staff.

Great atmosphere! We love the outside dining. The food is always good and fresh. The crab cakes are AWESOME! I rarely say this when away from home since Louisiana has some of the best seafood in the world! The quality is always fantastic.

This was my second time at Wild Thyme, and I won't be going back (I hope). Ordered the Cobb Salad and the avocado was two days past good...way too much turkey and just a yucky salad overwhelmed by rotten avocado. We ordered a tres leches cake for the table...and the waitress seemed shocked when we requested forks. I don't remember... More

WILD THYME cafe is a gem in the village of Cashiers. Full of summer tourists it has the best soups and sandwiches in town. We did not sample their dinner menu but from what we could see it must be even better than the lunch menu if that's possible. Try the cream of mushroom soup if it's on the menu... More
