About Us



Since 1987

The Wildflower has been providing the city of Arcata with delicious vegetarian food for 25 years!! Many regulars have been coming for decades for their house favorites. The restaurant has become a staple of the community.



The Wildflower Cafe and Bakery specializes in fresh and delicious meat-free meals. The cafe serves vegetarian breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as providing coffee and espresso drinks, and local beer and wine. Our bakery creates our house breads, a variety of vegan and gluten free treats, and well as the traditional indulgences.





Wildflower focuses on using organic and local ingredients whenever possible. Enjoy smoothies, shakes and vibrant salads on a sunny day. Or step in for a homemade chai, local vendor Sacred Grounds coffee/espresso, or a vegan soup on a rainy day. The Wildflower is not just good vegetarian food, its GOOD FOOD!
