Phenomenal food, service, and atmosphere - Edit

The food here is so tasty and reasonably priced. The chef is skilled at mixing very different flavors together to create one-of-a-kind dishes. Everything was very fresh- they make their own cheez and offer items like zucchini bacon. The owner is super kind and awesome! I will definitely be back.

Pros: Great food, Awesome staff, Good music

Cons: None

delicious cheezecake - Edit

I only stopped there for some dessert and decided to try their cheesecake. It was delicious and very light.
Unfortunately size was pretty small for the price.
Next time I have to try other things on their menu

Interesting eats - Edit

Been here a handful of times now and although it is not my favorite as far as the food portions for price and the sometimes miss on flavors, it's worth a trip to experience it for yourself. They are amazingly creative with their dishes. Also making coffees, desserts, and pastries. Worth a try.

Pros: Made from scratch , Large menu , desserts and pastries

Cons: Expensive for portion size

So Good, We Did it Twice! - Edit

Visit #1- Dinner
Everything on the menu looked so good, but we had to limit ourselves so nothing would go to waste. The mac and cheese appetizer was amazing, the cheese panini and tomato bisque was the definition of comfort food, the big ass burrito was big and delicious, the biscuits and gravy are indeed the best ever, the Vietnamese sandwich (forgot the name…) was tasty, and the three desserts were out of this world!

Visit #2 - Dessert
We had lunch at another excellent establishment in Flagstaff, but the desserts from WHyld Ass were calling to us. We answered the call and were rewarded with some of the most delicious sweet things we’ve ever eaten.

Hint #1: Go eat here!

Hint #2: Go often!

Hit and miss - Edit

Nice little café and restaurant with great decor and eclectic music. Some of the food here is delicious, some not so much. Get the grilled cheese and tomato bisque, or the nachos, both are delightful. Wash it down with a "noggin" smoothie (it tastes like eggnog) and try the cheesecake for dessert, it doesn't quite taste like cheesecake but it's good. I tried their in house black bean tempeh and, while it's mostly good you occasionally get a whiff of something rancid vinegary. The staff can be validation seeking at times but on the plus side they're attentive.

Pros: Attentive staff , Was open when other places were closed , Nice display case of baked goods and sweets

Cons: It's hard to know from what's going to taste good , So many things here taste like salad & shouldn't , Takes a while to prepare the food

Overall ok - Edit

Being from out of town where we have a lot of vegan options, this place turned out to be okay.

I think we were served by a new server. My husband wanted a grilled cheese and tomato bisque. He was told he could have an extra side, so he got chips and guac...only to find out that the included side was supposed to be the soup. We had to then order soup separately. Frustrating for my husband, who didn’t care for his sandwich (my son liked it, though) and had to wait for his soup.

I ordered a po’boy, and I was reminded of how much I don’t like tempeh. I switched out for a BLTA, which can they kindly accommodated. The bacon is made out of roasted zucchini—good, but there was a lot of avocado and not much zucchini bacon (which had all the flavor).

My kids had the basil mac and cheese (basically tastes like a pesto with caramelized onions) and they seemed to enjoy it.

Got moose tracks and snickerdoodles to go. The cookies were good.

Overall, not the best experience. The server did honor his mistakes, thank you. The food was just okay. All comes out to a three star experience for us.

Unique offerings - Edit

They offer sunflower milk in their lattes, so I had to try it. I don’t know if it’s my favorite. You can definitely taste the sunflower seed element. But it frothed up incredibly and I love trying new things. A few more of those and I might be sold! 😂👍🏻

Good food - Edit

You can tell everything is made from scratch here. They make their own sunflower milk which they use in the coffee drinks, buckwheat pancakes were good (very dense), bisquits and gravy was really flavorful. Bisquit was a little dry, but I haven't found a vegan bisquit that wasn't. I can say that the Chai tea was prolly the worst we've ever tried, but it may have been made wrong and we didn't say anything to the server. My fiance gets Chai wherever we go, and we know that it can spicy, but it honestly tasted like she dumped a whole tablespoon of cinnamon, clove and nutmeg into some steamed milk. Maybe it's not always like that, but it was the only bad part of our experience.

incredible! - Edit

This food is so good that my husband and I ate here twice during our visit! We almost didn't go, because based on the Happy Cow description this place looked like a coffee shop with some prepared foods available, and I don't really care much for coffee. They have a full menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner though!They also have lots of smoothies and juices as well as adult beverage cocktails made with fresh juices. They have coffee too, each cup made one at a time when ordered. They have a display case with lots of pastries and to go dishes like quiche. We opted to dine in. For dinner we ordered a burrito and a build your own salad, both of which contained their heritage beans and their cinnamon coated sweet potatoes. Both meals were phenomenally delicious! So much so that we came back for breakfast and tried the biscuits and gravy, the pancakes, the scramble and a green smoothie. Again it was all wonderful. They put chlorophyll in the tap water, so it is green and looks neat! Everything is made from scratch and all natural, down to the sugar (they use coconut palm sugar). You leave feeling wonderful, full of delicious and nutritious food. I will look foreword to the day I get to go back!

My only complaint is that it's rather dark in the place, so at dinner without the help of outside light we could barely see our food or read the menu. Hopefully they get some more overhead lighting!

Update April 2017:
Finally got to go back! They are in a new well lit location. It's a bit smaller, but really nice. They have updated the menu. It's overwhelming what to choose! I was impressed to see they now have homemade yogurt and homemade black bean tempeh on the menu! The food was just as good as we remember, so we went two days in a row. My favorite is still the scramble with it's delicious sweet potatoes and heritage beans.

Pros: too many delicious foods to choose from!

Cons: too many delicious foods to choose from!

Good Food, So So Service - Edit

Came here looking for a cozy place to eat and enjoy a cup of coffee. When we went in, it wasn't apparent whether we should seat ourselves or wait to be seated. None of the employees greeted us, so we sat ourselves. After sitting for several minutes and looking over the menu I went up to the counter to order and was told to have a seat and that they would be right with us. Staff weren't rude, but weren't particularly friendly either. The waitress had trouble hearing our order over the music. We felt a bit rushed even though there were empty tables, so we left as soon as we finished eating without ordering coffee or anything. The food was good. The portions were a little on the small side but fair. Overall it was an okay place to grab a bite, but I wouldn't feel comfortable sitting down with a book and a cup of coffee and spending a prolonged amount of time here.

Pros: Good Food , Variety of drinks

Cons: Service , Uncomfortable chairs , Noisy

Delicious, flavorful food - Edit

My husband and I were passing through Flagstaff on our way to Sedona, and we just had to stop for lunch. We found Whyld Ass Coffee Shop via the HappyCow app, and we were pleasantly surprised with the menu selection. It was truly difficult for me to pick a dish - they ALL sounded wonderful. I finally chose the falafel wrap, and my husband had the "cheesy" quesadilla. both tasted delicious. There is definitely something on their menu for everyone. Their pastries/desserts are gluten-free. They even have a full-blown juice bar menu and coffee smoothie menu. There wasn't a ton of seating, but the atmosphere was intimate and the server was very kind and helpful.

Pros: Diverse menu, Full juice bar, Gluten-free desserts

Farr Out Creations - Edit

The place embodies what they sell; tasty, unique and conscious. Daily menu is a must try. Fresh take on food. Vegan & organic. Great lavender latte and coffee kombucha.

Pros: there is nothing ordinary about the flavors and wi, kombucha on tap!

Cons: takes a second to decide

Not the best experience - Edit

Cute cafe and food WAS creative. However, we arrived and were not greeted for close to 15 minutes. The lovely chef informed us that the waitress wasn't in yet. She arrived and didn't greet us for another 20 minutes. We then waited over 40 minutes for our food to be delivered to our table (except for the tomato soup which arrived after we had finished everything). Given the wait, we ordered food to go as we ordered our meal but still had to wait for that. . . .and then we were charged for each takeout container (and food could have been consolidated easily). Overall very disappointing.

Pros: Funny name

Cons: Incredibly slow service, Unfriendly waitress

Don't miss this place - Edit

A real pleasure from the first bite to the last. Friendly guy named Keith explained the menu of the day to me. Tasty creative food, a beautifull menu with a lots of choices and juices and cafe. The best moment of my day. Really honest prices too. The kind of place i would bring my omnivorous friends without hesitation.

Pros: Friendly staff, good music

Great place for Vegan food - Edit

We stopped to pick up some dessert for our dinner guests and ended up staying for a plate of Nachos with Jackfruit. The Nachos were great! We bought several different pastries and I haven't had a chance to try them all but I really loved the fig blondies and the chocolate peanut butter brownies were unbelievable. Wish we had a place like this in my hometown.

Pros: Lots of options on the Menu, The owner is friendly, knowledgable and helpful, Tasty food

Cons: none, none, none

What a find! - Edit

Had to take a 2 hour run to take my tractor for repair in Flagstaff. Found the restaurant on Happy Cow.
We were so impressed with the food that we eat here every time we are in Flag now and try something new each time. We are even going to take the 2 hour drive to have dinner on my hubs birthday.
The bakery section is dangerous ...we always seem to leave with a box of extra goodies.

Pros: Excellent food, Good selection on menu plus daily specials, Friendly staff

Better than Gracias Madre! - Edit

Too bad this restaurant isn't in LA! My boyfriend and I took a short trip to flagstaff and ate here for breakfast 2 days in a row! Everything we have tried is amazing and the chef and staff are so friendly and welcoming. The food is so well thought out and beautifully presented! And not covered in oil which I love. Lots of deserts too and amazing lattes. This place should be jam packed every day!
Come to LA!

Pros: healthy, whole foods based
