I loved the local feel of this tiny restaurant (only 5 or 6 tables inside) and the food was delicious. Next time I will check out the patio!

I found this restaurant on Trip Advisor and was excited to try. Sadly the restaurant would not seat us with our young children and we were turned away. The restaurant was completely empty. We arrived at 11AM on a Friday.

This is a great little gem in downtown Wilmington. Fabulous sandwiches, soups, homemade potato salad, etc. Every single sandwich is great. We just split a Cuban, with a soup and a side of potato salad and we were perfectly full .

Tucked away in downtown Wilmington. This place offers lots of options, plus vegetarian options. We had the Bison burger special. It was excellent. Very cute and quiet spot.
