4 and 1/2 stars, actually (again, Tripadvisor, please change to a 10 point scale-I can't give a place like this the same rating as, say, Topolobampo or Bachelor Farmer, as it belongs on a different scale). But this place is good. So glad we found it. It is located in the heart of historic downtown Ennis, a faded but still... More

On the way to Houston, stopped in Ennis at the lovely Wildflower Café. The lunch special of a loaded baked potato soup and chicken salad sandwich was simply delightful. The peach sweet tea was neither too sweet Northrop peachy. The staff was friendly, and attentive, but never intrusive. All in all, a wonderful break just off the major highway. Excellent... More

Delightful lunch - half a Reuben sandwich and a cup of artichoke soup on a plate decorated with a bit of fruit and chips for $8.95. Attentive waitress and not too noisy! Wish I lived nearby.

I'm not sure if it's always crowded, but we waited about 20 minutes for a table. Time was easily spent shopping in the shop. Once seated, our order was promptly taken and the food came without a long wait. I had a spinach salad with 1/2 panini. Both were quite good! We were a party of 5 and everyone was... More

Sorry that you had a 20 minute wait for a table. That is not the normal for our café...but April (with Bluebonnet Trails) we were very busy. So happy that you came to the Wildflower Café and we hope to see you again soon! More

Consistently good menu items.....soups, sandwiches, & salads, Chicken salad is a winner! Staff is always welcoming and efficient, even during the very busy bluebonnet season. The cafe is incorporated into a delightful shop featuring lots of gift ideas. As a local, this is always my go-to place for a great lunch!
