Wildflower Café

Taking in so much natural beauty can be exhausting! Drop into the Wildflower Café for a light, delicious lunch or a refreshing beverage, and enjoy the nearby gardens while you refuel. The Café is a great place to have a seat in the shade and relax during or after your visit — or make it your first stop and plan your Wildflower Center experience from there.

Situated at the corner of the Courtyard by the Observation Tower, the Wildflower Café seats patrons both indoors in cool comfort or al fresco on two shaded patios. The Café offers table service with a selection of sandwiches, salads, snacks and refreshments. Menu choices change with the season and market availability.

The Wildflower Center has picnic areas available on a first-come, first-served basis for general visitors. Alcoholic beverages and fires are not permitted.
