Granted, when the Wildflower is on, their food is good -- the salads, especially, are made with fresh ingredients -- the spring and winter salads are my favorites. Along with the salad, you get a slice of freshly baked bread, a packet of frozen butter, and no knife to spread it with. Their baked goods are delicious as well, and if you're there, the cookies and cakes are definitely worth the calories if you're going to treat yourself. The sandwiches, however, are mediocre -- a good serving of meat, along with a bigger piece of lettuce that comes out of the sandwich when you first bite into it -- in other words, nothing special. My gripe with the Wild Flower is that I've always gotten the distinct feeling that somehow I'm doing them a favor by coming in to their establishment and dining there. The last time I went there, it was very crowded (a wedding shower with about 20 people was being held in the back room when I was there, along with a couple of groups of tourists). My party placed our order, and over an hour later, we realized they had forgotten it, since parties that had come in later were being served. I took the clip with the order number up to the cashier and told her what we ordered. She must have not believed me, because she asked me for my receipt to prove to her that yes, I actually did place an order. By that time, I was frustrated about the long wait of over an hour for an order of 2 sandwiches and 2 salads, and I asked for a refund. the cashier conveyed to me how put out she was to have to subtract the cost of the fountain drinks from my order (we did get the drinks on time, but that's because we served ourselves). I suggested that perhaps we should get the drinks for free but was told they don't do that. So, after 90 minutes, we did get a refund, minus the amount for fountain drinks. The times I've gone when it was less crowded, I did get my food in a reasonable amount of time, but I have never felt welcomed. Mind you, I'm not a demanding customer, and I understand getting behind in orders when a crowd descends upon an establishment that overwhelms the kitchen staff. But at least acknowledge to the customer that it's a busy day, and don't forget about them. And don't treat the customer as if you are doing them a favor by serving you. If you can get over these details, the setting of the restaurant is lovely -- the patio outside is surrounded by a small lawn dotted with flowers, and you can see some of the town's beautiful murals. Honestly, though? I'd recommend the other coffee house in town.
