Be sure to pick this WildFlour

WildFlour Café and Cupcakes in Washougal is celebrating its first anniversary in a new location, having moved from Main Street to Evergreen Way. The mother-daughter team of Connie and Bethani Higdon quickly caught the attention of diners interested in made-from-scratch, no-preservative recipes baked fresh daily. WildFlour's menu includes soup, sandwiches, cupcakes, cinnamon rolls and ice cream, and a breakfast menu will be rolled out in two to three weeks. Breakfast offerings will be baked instead of pan fried.
