Definitely not your ordinary café.
Imagine if a chef, baker, barista and florist spent a night together. The resulting lovechild would no doubt resemble something along the lines of this addition to Chepstow Road…
A homely and creative space full of floral arrangements, epic little meringues and artisan trinkets; serving up seasonal dishes, all made fresh on the premises.
Actually Wildflower is the hard work of two siblings who share a passion for food and, with backgrounds in theatre direction, a love of beautifully creative things.
It would be a crime not to describe the dinner we had as vibrant – each dish adorned with edible flowers and arranged, clearly, with passion. If Ray Mears had a creative streak or if Alan Titchmarsh was a gourmet chef on the side – these organic, fresh dishes are what they might produce.
The staff were welcoming, as you would hope they would be in such a homely and intimate setting, talking us through the choices for the evening and chatting about the bits and pieces that adorn the café walls. I think i need bowler hat light shades permanently in my life!
If you get the chance, do try the Duck – it’s cooked to perfection, with the right amount of pink, accompanied by cranberries adding that seasonal twist. And if you are one for leaving room for desert – you will need to! The servings were more than generous.
