Whenever I read food raves about new restaurants, I get super excited & my expectations rise to sky high levels. Especially if food bloggers write about it simultaneously. It makes me feel that I’m missing out on something delightfully gastronomic if I don’t dine there. Sometimes, I think it’s better if I put off reading before I actually had a shot at it myself, so I don’t expect the sun & the moon.
Such is Wildflour Cafe + Bakery, the new “in” cafe situated at The Fort. Don’t get me wrong, everything we ate was good. As good as you get elsewhere that you pay good money for. But reading about the raves, you would think you will get to taste something extra-ordinary. Maybe if I didn’t read too much gush and adoration and hype, I would have been perfectly happy & contented with the food we ordered.
The wait staff, aside from one which may have been the manager who took our orders, were not pleasant & had straight faces –medyo mga suplada -siguro kasi nasa The Fort, sosyal! :P A little smile would have gone a long way. One staff couldn’t even understand what I was saying & I had to call another to get my message across.
The ambience was nice though, and the cafe was filled with people aplenty. Most tables were reserved so I’m glad ate made reservations early for our date yesterday.

He should teach the wait staff some lesson on smiling.
|My prettina who managed to find the cafe *gasp* *shock*

We didn’t know what to order & had to seriously study each one haha.

|Wild Flour is more of a BREAD variety cafe.
If you’re not a rice-eater, then you’ll be ok here. ;)

They either give you a ciabatta, or french bread.
|Ate’s Soup/Salad/Sandwich 370 php
She loved the grilled cheese & the tomato Soup.
She mentioned it was somewhat like Borough’s. Wouldn’t know -haven’t been there.
The salad we both found too sour & overly-dressed.
|I got envious when I saw ate’s tomato soup that I ordered one for myself as well haha.
