Excellent!!

First had food from here at a friend's house. We were playing bridge and she brought the lunch that she had picked up at Jester's. We had quiche, shrimp, salad, muffins and key lime pie. Everything was delicious. It was so good that two friends and I decided to go have breakfast there after... read more

This is a great place to go if you have time to sit and enjoy company with a friend. The location is small and off the beaten path and it often gets quite noisy inside. There is space on a deck to eat which is nice when the weather is warm. You must try the lemon dill feta dressing .... More

Such an awesome place! Small, almost hole in the wall place that makes you feel as if your walking into your grandmas house for breakfast! The people are extremely nice, and make you feel as if they enjoy your company while your there! The food is awesome! I've been quite a few times and can't get enough! The french toast... More

This little hole-in-the-wall restaurant is the best place for a grilled pimiento cheese sandwich. While everything is good, this is my favorite.

A small out-of-the-way cafe. Has a very reasonable breakfast and lunch. Really a delicious hidden gem!

Such a great little place tucked away in the Arts & Antiques district of Castle street. It's always a pleasure to eat here. My favorite dish is the loaded pimento cheese sandwich. So ridiculously tasty...and cheap!

A nice little place in a cute little old house with great food and atmosphere. Had a tasty salad and the menu has a lot to offer...will surely go back again.

Drive around Wilmington to find this place. It looks like an old house from the outside with no one going in or out, kinda in and eclectic artsy area of town. That's what I drove up to. Then took a chance and went inside. Very rustic but cool place, warm and inviting. The servers were good and the brunch was... More

We stopped by the Castle Antiques District upon the recommendation of our B&B hosts and after spending several hours or so in the various shops along this eclectic street, it was suggested we stop in at Jester's for lunch.....and I'm so glad we did. The restaurant is housed in a small house type building and was still hopping when we... More

Located in a non descript house. Old and odd looking. But... The French dip... OMG.... I want to marry it. If you are ever in Wilmington, this is the place to stop and try. Amazing food. Service is friendly, prices are very reasonable. Love this place.
