This is a cozy little restaurant in Clintonville just north of Broadway. It's pretty small and usually crowded so be prepared to wait. We usually go for breakfast and the food is really good. Try the California eggs Benedict.

After doing some shopping, my friend and I were looking for a place to eat lunch. What a pleasant surprise the Wildflower Cafe turned out to be. We took a chance on a small building on Indianola Ave. So glad we did. Good food and a great atmosphere.

This small, intimate restaurant, almost totally obscured by an under-construction monstrous apartment building, is worth searching for. The food is well-prepared and the daily specials are a great bargain. It is a much sought-after eatery by the locals, which is always a good sign. The meat loaf is a specialty not to be missed.

Super service with a smile and delicious food too. It's a wonderful family atmosphere with great prices. The drink prices are so reasonable. Try a mimosa on Sunday.

This is a unique spot with excellent food and service. It is tiny so expect to wait r a table at peak times. The Bloody Mary is excellent as are all the brunch options. There are a variety of quiches and deserts. I have also heard the chicken and waffles are very good.

The fetching Mrs. Rat and I wanted some breakfast. We drove by our new favorite place, Beechwold Diner, but the line was out the door and fairly long. We kept heading south and were going to turn intoBurger King (Arrrrrguhhhhh)! But thankfully, we saw the Wildflower Cafe! On a first breakfast visit, Corned Beef Hash and Eggs, & Sausage Gravy...

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.

My daughter goes here all of the time with friends. So we took time to go for lunch together. It is next door to the construction of new apartments. Cute quaint place. Our group tried different items. We had two pick two lunch specials 1/2 tuna sandwich and soup. One had the chili and other had potato au gratin soup.... More

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.
