OR: Mosier - Wildflower Cafe

If anyone gets East of the Cascades in Oregon on I-84 and they get hungry around Hood River, I would highly recommend going the extra 5 miles to a small town called Mosier. On Saturday we had lunch at the Wildflower Cafe there. It was wonderful!!! My man had a smoked turkey and fig sandwich, which was a special on the board. It was very different and delicious. One of the guys that works there said it was the bread from a local bakery that really "made" the sandwich what it was. I had a sandwich called the Wildflower Garden Grill, which consisted of grilled zucchini, onion, mushrooms and tomatoes with melted Tillamook Cheddar on some amazing hazelnut bread, which I would venture to guess comes from the same bakery. The grandkid had a bowl of superior, garlicky macaroni and cheese, which he adored. When he couldn't finish the rest, I certainly had no trouble doing so.I would highly recommend this place. The food is flavorful and there are vegetarian options. It sounds like they try to use organic food whenver possible and the beef is Painted Hills so that is reassuring! Whatever the case, they have terrific food. It's, like, 69 miles east of Portland, but I dare say, I'd head that way just for the pure joy of eating there, let alone the scenic beauty of the Columbia River Gorge or a bike ride through the historic Mosier Twin Tunnels.Just remember Wildflower Cafe in Mosier when you're heading East and get hungry. I doubt very much anyone would be disappointed.Best regards,Amanda
