Alabama is well known for its variety of amazing places to eat. From casual eateries and upscale restaurants, to BBQ joints and sandwich shops, there’s certainly no shortage of great places to eat here in the Yellowhammer State.
Without a doubt, the main goal of every restaurant is to serve up the most delicious food. With that being said, there’s one Alabama restaurant that takes it a step further by preparing their dishes to be visually appealing. This restaurant is the one and only “Wildflower Cafe,” located in the quaint mountaintop town of Mentone.
The "Wildflower Cafe" is one of Mentone's most unique restaurants. People will drive for hours to experience everything this cafe has to offer.
In 2015, this unique cafe was voted "Best Cafe in Alabama" by the readers of Alabama magazine. It was also featured in the book "The Southern Foodie: 100 Places to Eat in the South Before You Die," as well as in Southern Living magazine.
