Wildflower Café

Taking in so much natural beauty can be exhausting! Drop into Wildflower Café for a light, delicious lunch or a refreshing beverage, and enjoy the nearby gardens while you refuel. Our 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, Wildflower Café seats patrons both indoors in cool comfort or al fresco on two shaded patios. The menu includes a selection of sandwiches, salads, snacks and refreshments (choices change with the season and market availability).

Seating is first-come, first-served with limited accommodation for small groups. Groups can arrange to have box lunches prepared two weeks in advance of their arrival by contacting Circle C Catering at 512.375.3539 or [email protected]

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