A good place to take family. It is not a quiet restaurant so kid friendly. We have eaten there for all three meals many times and they are good. Lunch is my favorite. They have a good pastry section with yummy sweets to end your meal.

If you are going for lunch be early. Not because the restaurant gets so very busy ... parking is so limited around the place, quite a few times we have given up trying to find a space and driven off to another restaurant. This place is one of Wilmington's old stand-bys. More cafe than restaurant. Never great, but always dependable... More

We live in Wilmington and Sweet n Savory is probably our most frequented restaurant. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner in a casual, family friendly atmosphere. There is something for everyone, from sandwiches and burgers, to wonderfully prepared seafood. Be sure to check out their specials on the board, which change daily, including a wide variety of soups. My favorite... More

we enjoyed a lunch here on a winter Sunday afternoon. The place was pretty crowded even at 2pm. Of the four of us, two really enjoyed our meals and two found their meals just ok. I had the Fried Oyster Spinach salad and really enjoyed it. The oysters were done just right and the dish came with a Horseradish Dressing... More

I stopped here for breakfast with a group of friends, and had a great time. The menu offered something for everyone - I was in the mood for something lighter, and the Skinny Breakfast Sandwich with fruit was the perfect solution. The waitress was extremely accommodating and brought a to-go cup for someone in our party who had to leave... More

I have eaten here 3 times. I ate different breakfast foods each time and all were less than average. The lack of flavor did not support the pricing. I will not return for a fourth visit.

This restaurant was recommended by 3 other people we talked with. It was everything they said it to be. A little hard to find but Garmin got us there. Parking is at a premium so be careful where you park. We had the clam chowder. It is unlike any other that I have eaten, and it was great. My wife... More

They have such good food, breakfast, lunch, and dinner! ALL of the desserts and pastries are one of the best part of the restaurant!

What I still envision when I think of a small, home town type restaurant. Good service. Very good food. The few times I have been here, they have had a daily special that seems exceptionally tempting. It would be a nice place to take a family. The food is VERY GOOD!
