Grits were good and served slightly warm, potatoes were cold and hard with very little flavor. Would not recommend for Sunday brunch.

On our way to a local winery, we stopped for a to-go lunch. We were greeted by Margie (super bubbly personality). We had hummus/chips and pimiento sandwiches, along with desserts. All had amazing tastes, full of flavor. Good was packaged perfectly for our picnic lunch. Thank you and we will be back!

Wild flour has great reviews from everyone so I was excited to notice it on the restaurant sign as I exited I-81 on my way to the Abingdon Vineyard. I was there for a late lunch around 2:00 pm on Friday. They have bunches of options and combos to choose from. I wii normally eat soup at every opportunity. They had three options - tomato-basil, one I can't remember and Roasted Red Pepper with Fennel which sounded interesting. The soup was tasty and the presentation was lovely, but was ruined for me by all the fennel seeds in the soup. With my soup, I had a half a chicken salad sandwich of which I just ate the salad. The salad was good with apples, pecans, and chives in the salad. It was light on mayo, and I prefer my chicken salad with a tad more mayo. The hibiscus tea was excellent and after my departure I wished I had gotten a glass to go. They have baked goods, but I found them underwhelming. Would I stop here again - maybe.

My wife and I have eaten here a couple times while in Abingdon. We normally get a wrap with hummus which is delicious. There are lots of fresh-baked selections, of which we've not found one we don't like yet! The staff is super friendly. It's neat how they turned this old house into an eatery. They are very eco-friendly. I appreciate how they use real plates and silverware and not throw away paper products.

For my review I will post the email I sent to the WildFlour Cafe...

My mother and I attempted to eat at your establishment Sunday. It was one of the strangest encounters we have ever had in a restaurant. We arrived at 10:05, just after opening. There were already several customers seated, which we thought was a good sign. I had attempted to eat at your restaurant once before with my wife a few years back, but the restaurant was closed for some reason. On this occasion we entered and waited to be seated. The servers were busy, so we waited 6 minutes to be seated. We were going to bike the VA creeper trail and were a little crunched on time, so we looked over the menu while we were waiting to be seated. As we were seated I told the server we were pressed for time and wished to go ahead and order. She said we could not order. She said that we must wait for everyone who was seated before us to order before we could. At that point I knew we could not wait and still make our bike trip, so I asked if we could put in a carryout order. Again, the woman told us no. Once again she said everyone else seated must order before we would be allowed to place our order. Throughout our conversation with the server her approach to us as customers was not..."how can I help you"...it was more like, "no I cannot and will not help you." So, unfortunately, we had to go eat our breakfast at McDonald's across the street. That was not the breakfast I had hoped to treat my mother with for her birthday.
Now my father owns 6 restaurants. My uncles own 2 restaurants. Our whole family is passionate about food and spends most vacations at destinations we have chosen only because of the food available at those locations. I have been to an ungodly number of restaurants in 49 states and I have never had someone refuse to take my order. If this ever happened at any of my father's restaurants he would be very upset. We were trying to put money in the pocket of the person I assume will read this complaint. We were willing to forgo eating in for the opportunity to simply try your food. We were, in essence, begging for an opportunity to try your food. If it is truly the strategy of this restaurant to not serve anyone until everyone who arrived before them has been taken care of, that is the most ludicrous concept ever. What if the large group on the porch decides chat for a while before ordering? Will the server go to the table and tell them to hurry up so others can dine? If this is the way you want to run this business you should run it like a butcher shop or deli and give everyone a number and make them order at the counter. Otherwise, this is the worst way to serve your customers I can imagine. How would you ever turn over tables and increase sales? This simply blew my mind. I write for a food blog and saw this as an opportunity to maybe do a write up of your place. That obviously didn't happen.
If the server we dealt with is also the owner, get a clue!
If not, and this is indeed your strategy to serve customers, all I can say is wow! Good luck with that.
If not, and this is not your strategy of serving, I may speak with that server about her gruff and non-helpful attitude.
