Food was good! - Edit

Mostly vegetarian options, but we were able to modify to have several choices. Server was helpful & understood what vegan meant! Millet burger was tasty. Rice & bean tostada with salsa was very good! Great atmosphere & would go again.

Pros: Good food

Cons: People smoking at the front door

Vegans from out of state - Edit

First impression was dwindling quickly as the wait staff proved a lack of basic knowledge about Vegan options and the differences between red and white wines. After several trips to the kitchen and back we wound up changing our orders twice. Food finally arrived. One order was missing a substitute for the cheese and took a bit long to get someone to respond. Overall the food was ok but not inspirational by any stretch of the imagination.

Pros: not many, They heaped lots of bread on the table.

Cons: Severely limited seating for more than 4 people , very slow to fill orders Food was ok, but seemed l, Millet burger was very bland and required much sal

Hopeful, but soon disappointed - Edit

I called ahead and asked about vegan food options and was told that they could make changes to make a dish vegan, except for the soups, which were made ahead of time in bulk. No problem. We went to the restaurant and it felt welcoming and warm, we chose a table by the window. The waitress, Doris, was AWESOME. She made sure everything I had did not have butter in it and was vegan. Unfortunately, and out of her control, the entrees we were served were not worth the money spent, except for the side salad with mustard maple sauce and the bread. My dish, promoted as a staple of the restaurant, Ellie's Red Beans and Rice, was bland and the rice was not cooked evenly. My partner, who is not vegan, had their prized Southern Meat Loaf, and even that was dry and bland as well, and the broccoli was super salty. I was so hopeful, but soon disappointed with the plant based offerings. They could have done so much better.

Pros: side salad with maple mustard dressing, bread with balsamic/ oil dipping sauce

Cons: Eli's Red Beans and Rice, Southern Style Meat Loaf

No Choices - Edit

I'm not sure what experience the other two people had but I wish I'd had the same. Wildflour is literally in my backyard...maybe 30 steps from my door to theirs, so I really wish it was good.

I've tried it twice in the two years since I moved into the neighborhood and was severely disappointed both times. The servers weren't helpful. I worked in a restaurant for five years so I understand sometimes it depends on the server but I'm not willing to try again.

Both times there were only two things on the menu I could eat and I had to make changes to both to make them fit my diet (at the time I was just vegetarian and no eggs...I'm full vegan now so I'm sure it would be even harder). They couldn't answer my question about what was in the bread. They didn't notice when I wasn't eating my entree - both times- and when I mentioned it while paying -both times- I just got and "oh, I'm sorry you didn't enjoy it."

Both times we took home my leftover and my will-eat-anything fiance tried to eat them the next day and ended up trashing them. His exact words on the first one was "oh my God, that's so gross."

I really do wish it were better because we wouldn't have to walk 20 minutes to get downtown and back to go out to eat or get in our car and drive to the Wildflour at Tower's (different owner...waaaay better food and choices). If things have changed in the last year let me know and I will try it again.

Pros: Proximity to my home

Cons: No Options, Staff not very helpful, What I could eat just wasn't any good

Great food! - Edit

They have lots of vegan options, you just have to ask the staff. They're happy to change a dish up. We've been twice, the first time I had the red beans and rice (without cheese) which was very good. Second time I had a millet patty with no cheese and I added avocado. Very yummy! They even double checked which breads were vegan for me! None of their desserts are vegan.

Pros: very vegan-friendly, great food, helpful staff

Cons: no vegan desserts

A perfect place for a vegetarian on the road - Edit

Roanoke is a usual stop for us on the way from NJ to visit family in North and South Carolina. We always have dinner at the Wildflour Market and Bakery. The storefront space is large, open and inviting. The staff is friendly, helpful and efficient. There are always multiple vegetarian options including specials. There is a variety, Mexican dishes, lasagna, ricotta pie, and a tasty grain burger that is different than the usual veggie burger fare. My family has enjoyed the food on each visit. Last, but not least, they have a huge selection of fabulous cakes! After multiple stops here, I can honestly say there is no downside.

Pros: tasty food, welcoming space, friendly staff

Cons: parking
