During the holidays, I allow myself to have a couple of pastries so last week was the perfect time to visit the Wildflour Bakehouse on the Parkway. It is located almost across the street from the K-mart shopping center, behind McDonalds and Long John Silver’s restaurant. You can also access the back of the building from Court Avenue. Come along with us for a holiday lunch to the Wildflour Bakehouse.
First, you will notice that it is spacious and has a variety of seating areas.
I liked the vintage sectional sofa on the left side of the room, under the flat screen TV that plays the Food Network. It is clearly the right color!
There is also a room to the right for sipping coffee or relaxing. We loved the deep purple.
Next, you will notice the abundance of pastries in the case. The owner and her friend will tell you the specials of the day and how things are made, if you like. They are very friendly and will tell you how their friendship and working situation actually began in Knox County when they worked together at the 911 Center.
It can get a little busy during the lunch hour. David Verble works downtown and is a happy return customer.
Several of us ordered the chicken salad sandwich on cranberry bread. You also receive a cookie with your lunch. We really enjoyed the mini cookie trays which were used to serve our lunches. So cute!
That day, soup choices were tomato basil or chicken pot pie soup. Both were very good.
Someone said that their cinnamon bun eaten later at home was very, very good!
I actually returned to the Bakehouse with a friend a few days later for lunch. Here were the specials that day.
I ordered the avocado toast and it was wonderful.
A beautiful gold cake!
Wildflour Bakehouse was ready for New Year’s Eve customers with these cute sugar cookies. During lunch about 8 people were in line to order so it was a busy.
A special holiday cookie with peppermint—what a good idea !
They make everything at the Wildflour Bakehouse, even scones!
The shelves were freshly stocked with breads and other pastries for the New Year’s Eve and Day holidays.
The Bakehouse also has a private room that can be used for different events. Talk to them about that when you visit. If you order a cake from them then you may get a very good deal on using the room for the first hour.
We really enjoyed our lunch(es) at the Wildflour Bakehouse and will return again soon. I was glad that we were there during our holiday and didn’t have to rush through lunch. You will want to linger a little with friends, but maybe sit a little farther from the pastry booth if your willpower is weak. There are many tempting treats at the Wildflour Bakehouse and you will want to try them all!
See you out and about in Sevierville.
