“Fun organic bakery with creative flare”
Reviewed November 8, 2010

Love the chaitea latte, their brownie (super moist, chewy, and chocolatey) and basket to go. Fresh breads and goodies available at a reasonable price. I accidentally left w/o picking up everything; when I discovered I was missing the cookie dough I went back and the cashier had my dough waiting for me to pick up. This place has a steady customer base, so be forewarned you may have to wait for a table, but it's worth it!

“marginal at best”
Reviewed October 13, 2010

I am a coffee freak and love baked goods, so we headed to Wild Flour as we'd heard that it was a local favorite. I know that their bakery aims to avoid typical flours and gluten, but their baked goods were either just okay or flat out awful. We had a blueberry scone that was made primarily with rice flour. It was fine, but nothing great. Then we had a muffin that I think was made primarily with corn meal which was absolutely awful. It was swimming in vegetable oil - seriously, left the napkin and my hands not just greasy but absolutely wet with oil. Terrible. Almost asked for my money back. I can't understand why the bakery would have a positive reputation. The coffee was fine, but not good enough to counter the poor quality of the baked goods. Can't recommend it.

“Best place to get your picnic or lunch”
Reviewed September 15, 2010

even if you have to eat your hot sandwiches cold, while gazing at Crowfoot Glacier.... large variety of sandwiches whuch have unusual filings like grilled vegetables and mozzarella.

The equivalent of this is Bear's Paw in Jasper. The savoury food they serve is very different, more variety here in Wild Flour.

“Wonderful place for breakfast”
Reviewed August 24, 2010

This was recommended to us by a friend of a friend who is a local. He did not steer us wrong and we ate here two mornings that we were in town. This is a bakery so you have to stand in line and hope that a seat/table is available but keep in mind that their are both indoor and outdoor tables as well as some stools along the countertop by the window. they serve an all day breakfast and our breakfast was amazing......wonderful waffles, granola, breakfast sandwiches and even the chocolate croissants were fantastic. They serve fair trade coffee.
This is a very busy spot with great food and coffee.

“Yummy waffles”
Reviewed August 5, 2010

The waffles and maple syrup were delicious. Same for the choco banana muffins. Something was terrifly amiss with the apple cinnamon scone I ordered to go, though. Also, I ordered a choco banana muffin to go, but when I opened the bag the next morning, they had enclosed a carrot muffin instead. It was good, but I really was counting on that choco banana on my long flight home!
