I love going here. The breakfast menus offers more ingredients to their eggs and omelets than most places. I like how they offer smoked salmon to the eggs. That's very unusual in this town. They also have creative pancakes as well. Just make sure you tell them you want butter on your toast or you won't get it.

The Wildflower Cafe serves American Cuisine that is plentiful and tasty. Most of the items are homemade. The look of the restaurant is quaint and the service is impeccable. While this is not a five star restaurant it is a nice choice for good American food served in an excellent atmosphere.

We like to eat in local diners and cafes, and Wildflower did not disappoint. Not only did they have Eggs Benedict (my wife's favorite) but they had four or five variations. Blueberry pancakes were perfectly cooked, and the corned beef hash wasn't too greasy. We'd go there again, for sure.

I was disappointed with all the rave reviews it was given on Yelp. I had the fried chicken special. It was so dry, I should have been eating crackers. Even the drumstick tasted as if it had been under a sun lamp for a couple of days. The mashed potatoes tasted like instant. I am a huge, huge fan of... More

I love this little deli! The service is always great and the food is always excellent! The chicken salad sandwich is one of my favorites. A great locals spot.

Wildflower Cafe is a perfect example of a friendly neighborhood spot featuring classic comfort foods that are deceptively well crafted. Though small, the proprietors of Wildflower make excellent use of their indoor and outdoor dining space, in a simple and cozy layout that works because of the exceptional staff and great food. Everything at Wildflower Cafe is delicious. Try the... More

Do not overlook this small eatery as they serve up some wonderful dishes. Fresh ingredients, beautiful representation of prepared food, and great desserts to choose from. The staff is courteous and eager to please. Went for lunch and had a very short wait to be seated and the food was just as great as what we had been told by... More

One of my favorite places for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Conveniently located just north of east north Broadway on Indianola Avenue in Clintonville, this local gem will not disappoint. I've been coming here since it opened a number of years ago. My favorites include the King Club sandwich, fruit plate with chicken salad and a killer blueberry muffin, Indonesian pasta... More
