Fantastic place!

I'm always excited to find a good healthy vegan restaurant! This place did not disappoint:-) the raspberry mocha was Perfection as well as the fruit smoothie. It is a bit pricey but the portion size is generous and the quality is top-notch!

Pros: Variety of food options., Good quality and fantastic tasting food., Friendly service!

Cons: A bit pricey, Took a little while to get our food.

Wildflowers deserves 10 stars

Every time we go, we marvel at the excellent food and welcoming staff. Today we met one of the owners, and it was a pleasure to tell her in person how much we love the food and personable staff.
Everything about this restaurant will please vegans and vegetarians. The restaurant is casual and gorgeous - from the artwork to colors of the walls to the wildflowers on the tables to the Fiestaware dishes - the atmosphere is inviting and beautiful.
The menu is fantastic. It was hard to decide because I would have been happy with coffee and a pastry or a pancake.
We decided to order the Tempah Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato sandwich (TLT) and the mock tuna wrap. For the sides, we chose a green salad and chips and hummus. the portions were enormous (as you might expect from a woman-owned restaurant in Humboldt County).
They were out of a few items we wanted to order, and we didn't even think that was a negative. It shows they are a sustainable business that buys fresh ingredients. We came in at 3 and they close at 4, so we did not mind hearing that they were out of a few things.
There are not a lot of restaurants that serve vegans in Humboldt County so Wildflowers really stands out.

Interesting vegan combinations

Everything they have is vegan or can be made vegan. We have been a few times and everything has been good. I got the biscuits and gravy and it was made with macadamia nuts instead of vegan sausage. They also have other interesting substitutions and flavor combinations.

Best dining experience I've had in years

I haven't eaten out at a restaurant since before COVID spread & this was the first time I've been able to get a vegan meal that wasn't just a side dish or veggie burger. The staff was incredibly friendly, the prices were decent, and my family members (neither of whom are vegan or vegetarian) both loved the food. I ordered the french toast & it was basically perfect. My only regret was eating a late breakfast before dining here & not being able to finish the whole plate. This place will definitely be my go-to when it comes to eating out from now on.

Pros: Lots of vegan options/substitutions, Affordable considering the portion sizes, Day-old baked goods are discounted

Cons: Their online menu hasn't been updated, Parking can be difficult

The only veg place around

I came only for a quick coffee and cookie and it was all good. I kinda expected more vegan options on the menu.
The place was pretty full so I think the food must be worth it:) staff was very lovely

Pros: Amazing vegan options, Gravy!!!!, Homemade ingredients

Awesome, wholesome vegan food

So glad we found this amazing plant-based eatery. They do not serve meat here, so the menu is entirely vegetarian. They do serve some egg and cheese items, but their menu proudly proclaims they can make any item vegan. We ordered the fiesta bowl and steamed veggies and rice and they were both wholesome and delicious. They also have house made tahini and hot sauce that are delicious that we purchased to-go.

Pros: Tons of vegan options!, Good prices, Delicious and wholesome

Fine for lunch on a roadtrip

The food was fine, but not spectacular. Staff were friendly, but none wore masks despite a statewide indoor mask mandate.

My go to spot on the North Coast of California.

Arcata is a hip little town on the redwood coast. Home to Cal Poly Humboldt and obviously the best weed in the world.

Pros: Everything can be made vegan , Everything is vegetarian or vegan , Quaint little restaurant

Humboldt's Go-to for Veggie Eaters

Lots of vegan options available. Some of my favorites are the TLT, Cajun Seitan (Seitan made in house), and the vegan nachos but really the possibilities are endless. Try their housemade hot sauces n dressings! You won't regret it!

Pros: Lots of Vegan Options , Best Housemade Hot Sauce, Fresh!

Excellent food, great variety

Wildflower had really tasty vegetarian food with a good variety of dishes. They have vegetarian dishes that can all be made vegan on request, in addition to the exclusively vegan items listed in their menu. We had all 3 recommended bowls (dragon, fiesta, spicy peanut), vegan pancakes, vegan French toast, cinnamon coffee cake, spiced apple cider, carrot juice, soy latte and the mocha latte. Each dish was lip smacking delicious and the beverages were the best we’ve had in ages. The ambience is very warm and the staff is super friendly as well. Cannot recommend this place more!

Sooooo good!!!

The food and service were both outstanding! It’s Covid time, so called in and picked up the food. Had the Wildflower Florentine sub tofu scramble for eggs and the Rancheros Flores sub tofu scramble for eggs and vegan cheese sauce and sour cream. Both dishes were sooo good! Will definitely be back!

Pros: Lots of dishes can be veganized

Recently spent the weekend in the Arcata. It was my first visit to the area but Wildflower Cafe was in the top of my “have to try” spots. I was not disappointed. The selection was great and the food we ordered was delicious. The coffee was very good as well. The staff was very friendly and considerate. We thought we may have to wait awhile but service was quick. I will definitely be visiting again and hope the pandemic restrictions will be over so we can have the dine-in experience. Kudos to a fantastic cafe.

Pros: Vegan Bakery Items, Large Menu, Great Coffee

Amazing Food!

Came here twice during one of our trips up to the redwoods. Though we could not eat in the restaurant due to Covid-19 we were able to phone our order in and pick it up both times. The food was amazing, and the service super friendly! We had their breakfast burrito the first time with tofu and the flavors were absolutely amazing. During our second order we had the Rubén Sandwiches with the house made sauerkraut and again were amazed on how flavorful it was. One of the best Ruebens I have ever tasted. We will make it a point to come back here next time we visit.

Pros: Lots of Items can be made vegan. , Moderately Priced, Delicious food!
