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.

YUM! Jester's is a phenomenal little spot in the antique district. It's built into an old cottage home, leaving the ambiance to be cute and family-oriented. The kitchen is fully visible from the restaurant! The staff provide excellent and friendly service, without missing a beat. They always have a delicious quiche of the day, ready to be gobbled up. I... More

Carol and I stopped by here last Thursday (1/2) to have breakfast prior to getting our day started. We love this place! It has a comfortable environment and friendly servers. It is also consistent, the same quality and reliable menu items - every time. You cannot miss with the quiche of the day!! They are flexible in allowing me to... More
