“This is the best kept secret in E-City.......Shhh! you may have to wait for a table.”
Reviewed September 13, 2011

This place in great and in a most unusual location inside a garden store. You walk in and immediately you are greeted with smiling faces and helpful people. There is dining inside or on the patio which I prefer on nice days. I have only eaten there for lunch, don't know if it is open for lunch. My favorite dish is the Tuna/Chicken Salad plate. Its not on the menu, but instead of one type I elect both to satisfy my cravings. (Tuna favorite though) Great place!

“Quality food in a cute, casual atmosphere”
Reviewed January 7, 2011

We ate lunch with friends and were promptly served by a cheerful waitperson, and were quite surprised at the extent of the menu; there are many choices. Opting for the soup of the day -- creamy vegetable -- and sandwiches, we had a delightful lunch. Everything was delicious, fresh, and the portions were just right -- not too large. There is an outdoor seating area which would be delightful in warmer months. Their desserts are mouth-watering, and are famous in Elizabeth City (Kathy's Kreations owns both venues). The cafe, tucked inside Kenyon Bailey (gifts and outdoor items) has ample room between tables, so that diners do not feel cramped. If only the serveware were other than paper and plastic, it would be really first-rate. But the food is excellent, and we plan to return.

“Magnificent!”
Reviewed December 21, 2009

Wildflower Cafe is a quiet little restaurant attached to a gardening store. The service is great, the staff is friendly, and the food is delicious. The chicken salad was especially delicious! I don't know if they've changed the recipe, but I can't wait to travel the 3 hours it takes me to get to Elizabeth City, just to have that delicious chicken salad once again.

“Great for lunch!”
Reviewed July 17, 2009

The Wildflower Cafe's food is consistantly good and a great value. Their menu mainly consists of sandwiches and salads, but for a nice lunch at a decent price I highly recommend it! Their pasta salad is the best I have had anywhere and they also have delicious deserts. The cafe can get a little loud when they are really busy, but their outdoor patio is a wonderful place to eat on nice days.

The Wildflower Cafe is located in Kenyon Bailey Garden Center. It's a very nice place to have lunch with friends, very popular so get there early. Food is great, desserts are awesome. I highly reccommend to everyone.
