Grest Food, Reasonable Prices.

Jesters Java is in an old House in the Arts district of Wilmington. We travel to or through Wilmington 2 or 3 times a year and have always had lunch on the river front. After seeing the many great reviews and #1 rating for Jesters Java we had to try it and boy are we glad we did. The atmosphere,... read more

Had trouble finding this place because it moved across the stree from the address listed (it's at 607, not 606). What a delightful place for brunch. We had quiche, which was delicious. The waitress was very nice and very attentive. The owner/cook stopped by to check on things, too. Will definitely return.

A church friend and I had a nice lunch at Jesters on Wednesday (6/17). The service is always quite, attempting to get you a table as soon as possible. The food is always good, no matter which item you order off the menu. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

My girlfriend, who lives in wilmington, and I have a love affair with this amazing, hidden in plain sight gem in the middle if the art district. From their lighter than a souffle quiche of the day that is packed with flavor yet allows each flavor note to sing it's part in a pallette pleasing symphony, to their unique and... More

This is the 4th time I've eaten at Jester's and I absolutely love it! The food is exceptional and the staff is ever so nice! Located amidst the little antique district on Castle street. Couldn't ask for better! Make sure to stop here if you're in the area!

This is also a hidden gem in the little big town of Wilmington. They have the best pancakes I have ever had. Crazy good food. It's down in the art district of Wilmington.

Great restaurant for lunch or breakfast. Try everything. You won't be disappointed. Love the quiche and all of the sandwiches. The coffee is the best in town. Best of all is the staff. Jamie, Richard have been taking excellent care of us for ten years. Can't wait to get back.

We always bring family and friends here for breakfast. The Strata is delicious. The are many other menu choices. You may have to wait for a table but that should be a hint that this is a popular spot for locals as well as others. The waitstaff is attentive so you always have a full and hot cup of coffee....

First of all, the owner, Jamie, is in the kitchen and the kitchen is open to the restaurant. This sounds like a coffee shop only but much more than that. Their black bean items, lox bagels items, pimento cheese! sandwiches, salads, soups. It's all good, good, good!
