Our normal spot was extremely busy, so we continued across the drawbridge to have breakfast. This little restaurant was very busy too, but with less waiting. Everyone's dishes were delicious. The hash browns were neatly cut up wedges and a little on the dry side, but every thing else was good. Grits were perfectly seasoned and I could have made... More

You are looking for a great breakfast place close to Wilmington and Wrightsville Beach and you see a packed parking lot at the Sweet n Savory Cafe - but don't be deterred. The wait is never long. The friendly staff gets you a table, whether inside or out as soon as possible. And of course it is worth it. Great... More

I have always enjoyed the Oceanic and the Bridgetender, but Sweet n Savory Cafe really hit the spot for breakfast the other day. They were also very helpful in filling an impromptu bakery order for a party. I had the pulled pork breakfast tacos, and they were delicious. I also enjoyed the balanced and flavorful coffee. Not too strong, but... More

S&S is often our meeting place when we are in Wilmy. The food is always good, the brisket excellent! We haven't gotten any of their baked goods, which is what they advertise, because we're always so full after dinner. The only problem is it is noisy at peak hour to try and visit with anyone. But once you get your... More

Looks a little dated when you walk in but don't let the building and decor fool you. The food is fantastic! We had everything from scallops to steak to chicken. Chef does a great job putting his own unique touches on each dish, wait staff is friendly and fun. We were in town for one night and only found this... More

We just ate at Sweet and Savory tonight! We thoroughly enjoyed the Shrimp and Grits!! Although the interior is not particularly impressive, be sure to finish off your meal with a sampling from Sweet n Savory's large selection of homemade baked goods. Live music most nights! For lunch, there is an elaborate menu of creative sandwiches!

Each night their are specials so you do not have to drain your wallet on a meal. The nightly specials are written on a huge chalkboard so... More

This is right off the main drag between Wilmington and Wrightsville Beach. Parking was a bit scarce, but we jammed ourselves into their lot. There was no line right then, for lunch, but I'm sure there is sometimes. Service was extremely prompt, and the menu had LOTS of things on it we'd love to try. Being eager to enjoy seafood,... More
