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

Fantastic food! - Edit

Amazing food and kind and knowledgeable staff. We had the basil and cashew macaroni, cheese and the nachos with all the trimmings. We recommend going if you are close by or driving through Flagstaff. 10/10

Pros: Great Service

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

Best spot in Flag - Edit

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

AMAZING - Edit

Just drove through Flagstaff and stopped here, and I am so glad I did. I'm entirely whole foods plant based, and let me tell you, the food here was the best I've had anywhere. Ever. The deconstructed guacamole sandwich was fantastic. The menu is so expansive, it was all I could do not to order one of everything. The staff are really friendly and willing to explain anything. Everything is organic. They offer free taste samples, and have cookies, brownies, caramels, etc. for dessert. Seriously I could live and die here.

Pros: delicious food, not terribly expensive, friendly staff

Cons: none. seriously.

Not my type of food - Edit

I'm a vegan and didn't love what I got here. It was very plant-based. I mean everything tasted like veggies. It just isn't the type of food I like, but I can be a picky eater and others on here seem to really like it. I would've liked more beans in my quesadilla with soy cheese, but it tasted of only veggies. Everything seemed to be made from scratch which was awesome. There Mac was good, but it is also different than vegan Mac I've had. Overall, the people were very nice. They have tons of food options. I just wouldn't recommend if you aren't a huugee veggie lover.

Pros: Friendly Staff, Food made from scratch

Cons: Veggie flavor in everything

It was perfect! I want to live near there. - Edit

I visited on December 31, 2015 and I was a bit confused at first... I was fascinated by all of the sweets displayed that I didn't even notice the menu and was confused on what to do. I ordered the Cinnamon cake and a Roxberry Smoothie which was just soo delicious! I was going to order more but I was on a budget haha. I highly recommend this place if you love cake or smoothies. I have not tried any of the food on the menu but will do when I visit again. It is expensive but it's totally worth it! Although it was a bit dark, it was still perfect for me because that day it was cloudy and rainy. Anyways, the guy that took our order was super nice, really enthusiastic and very welcoming. So I love this Coffee Shop and is now my go to place every time I visit Flagstaff! Everything about this place is just perfect!

Pros: Delicious cake and muffins, Delicious Smoothies, Very welcoming

a blessing!! - Edit

after months on the road driving all over the US we have always been in a constant crave for good vegan food. after a few days camping and eating crap we made it to flagstaff and decided to give Whyld Ass a try. and holy cow they delivered. we both got the burrito and it was seriously one of the best burritos we have ever had and we live in NYC and are used to getting spoiled from amazing vegan food. this burrito wins all burritos hands down. we are going back for breakfast in the morning :)

Pros: awesome atmosphere , great prices all organic

Love this place! - Edit

I found WHyld off of HC and was excited to pass through Flagstaff last month. I had time constraints so had to grab the San Fran burrito for the road. It was original in flavors and ingredients, sweet potato hash, lentil sausage, etc. Crisped the tortilla and made it perfect to eat.

We're here again, using an excuse of looking for household goods, when the truth is, the food, vibe, and people make this place worth the 4 hrs drive from Vegas;) #homemade #whatveganseat #whatvegansdrink #organic #vegan #bakery #juicebar #lgbtq #flagstaff #az

Pros: Everything is vegan!

Cons: It's in Flagstaff instead of Vegas! No other cons!

Sweet spot - Edit

Kind of has that anarchist vibe which can often be 50/50 in terms of how you are served but everybody we interacted with was very friendly and helpful and the food was good too. In fact we went twice in our impromptu stay because our vehicle broke down here

Fantastic food and great drinks! - Edit

The Vietnamese special was delicious, and the peach bourbon kombucha beer they sold was incredible. The smoothie, juice and ice chai were really good too, and we loved the chilled-out reused-furniture vibe. We went twice in 24 hours it was so good!

Is This Open? - Edit

Arrived at the location this morning at 6am. According to the HC info it should have been open. No signage outside on the building. Was definitely closed. Not sure if the place is still open at all. Was planning a nice breakfast there before getting not the road.

WORLD CLASS - Edit

I won't even insult this place with insufficient words to describe the poetry of their menu. Eating here should be on every vegans bucket list. Make the trip to Flagstaff, this place is worth it.

Funky, Cool, Cafe! - Edit

This is the coolest little cafe. I tried the Biscuits and Gravy. They were different from I'm used to. The biscuits were more course in texture and the gravy, although spicy and tasty, was of a thin consistency; not thick like southern gravies. Not bad, just different. I would love to return to try the lentil loaf that I saw on their menu. Awesome and friendly employees. Spacious layout and cool decor.

tip - You get a small discount if you use cash.

Pros: all vegan

Cons: street parking

Best Cafe Music of All Time - Edit

This eclectic, rustic yet stylish cafe is very large with diverse types of art. A huge space that's very comfortable with extremely friends staff and owners who go out of their way to connect with each customer. It double backs as a market promoting healthy communities and living throughout the entire business, from their menu to their promotion of local farm produce. The food was incredible and easily fit with my lactose and gluten free life style. The 80's pop/ rock music made my experience spectacular!

Pros: Healthy food , Amazing staff , Great smoothies and food

Cons: length of time to make food

Yum! - Edit

Such a charming place located in such a charming town! Their coffee is great & the banana bread was yummy - it had a twist of extra cinnamon in it which made it pleasantly different from your run-o'-the mill 'nana bread. I live a few hours away, tho anytime I am in the area again, I will be stopping by!

Pros: Vegan-run

Cons: Far away from my home city...
