We had lunch at the cafe when we visited the wildflower center. It's not a 'destination' cafe, but our lunch was fine - soups, salads and sandwiches and the price was reasonable.

I was happy to eat here, but mostly because it's a way to support the wildflower center. The cafe is the sort of thing you'd expect from a captive food place. The food is not especially diverse, but it's reasonable and not horribly expensive. (Neither is it inexpensive - this is, after all, fundamentally about convenience.)

A good choice for lunch while visiting the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center. We ordered sandwiches, which were very tasty. Service was slow, and they had run out of some food items, so probably better to go earlier. Seating is limited, though some people ate outdoors (could be uncomfortable in the heat of summer)

After walking the grounds of the Wildflower Center, this is a nice place to rest your tired feet. Simple food, but fresh and excellent. Good for a break for tea on a hot day, too.

Light meals available at a reasonable price. The avocado wrap with fruit was tasty as was the ham and cheese on a bun. Soft drinks and ice tea are available and a few desserts like cheese cake. The cafe is pretty with flowers painted on the chair seats and fresh wild flowers on each table inside. There is table service... More

Great place to pick up a sandwich after a beautiful morning walk at the center. It mainly has sandwiches, salads and soups. I had a chicken salad sandwich with their pasta salad and it was fabulous.

If you are at the Ladybird Johnson Wildflower Gardens, this is a great place to have lunch. Since you must pay to get into the Gardens it's not really an option unless you are already there. The salads and sandwiches are excellent. The service was good. It's a really a cute place to have a relaxing lunch.

Family needed a bit of air conditioning and a bit of water, so we stopped in after our nice walk (shortish) from Visitor Center and back again.
