Wildflower Cafe in Clearwater, Florida – Buttermilk Biscuits on a Rainy Saturday

I went to Clearwater, Florida, for a short weekend at the end of February to recharge, get some sun, and be away from the storming weather of the NorthEast. As life would have it, it poured the entire day on Saturday. My friend and I tried to salvage the day by eating at the Wildflower Cafe on Fort Harrison Ave. Wildflower was a well-rated restaurant that serves daily breakfast and brunch. It was also extremely busy when we got there. People were running to get inside the restaurant. We knew the food would be good, but we were in for a huge surprise.

Cheesy Grits & Scramble Eggs. The grits came separately. Can you see the buttermilk biscuit in the photo? Honestly, the eggs were ok and the sausage was average. But the biscuit was outstanding. It was very crumbly which I don’t usually like. I also don’t usually like biscuits. But this one… The balance between the butter, the sweet and the salty was just right. Even if it is crumbly, I wanted more with each bite.  This is another example of ugly but awesome tasting food.

Cheesy Grits. Blah.

Definitely go back for the biscuits. I would be willing to eat the other items on the plate because of the biscuits. It was a sufficient temporary distraction for us from the rain.
