“Great lunch start to finish...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2013 via mobile

This great little bistro has very good coffee, excellent quiche and quite frankly, I almost bought a quart of the daily soup to go home with me. The quiche was perfectly hot, very generous and it was delicious. The white bean soup, well, I would go back for another bowl with the perfect balance of ingredients. The atmosphere is very comfortable for either a business lunch or a mid day break with a loved one. Great place.

“Lovely Porch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

I enjoy dining on the porch at Jester's. The food is amazing and the service is beyond exception. A perfect break from a busy day at work. I haven't had a meal I didn't love yet!

“Excellent, excellent, excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

We called ahead for a group of ten on a Wed morning. Staying in Carolina Beach but spending the day in Wilmington to walk around Water Street and visit the USS North Carolina. Jester's had places waiting for us 30 min later. Restaurant is in an old house which gives a great atmosphere. Owner and staff were friendly, and service was perfect. The food was outstanding. We had quiches, breakfast sandwiches, black beans Benedict and french toast casserole. Bacon was great, cheese grits and home fries were fantastic. Everything served hot and cooked perfectly. Everyone pretty much licked their plates. Excellent coffee, too. As we were finishing our late breakfast, other customers were ordering lunch. The lunch sandwiches looked really good. I will certainly eat at Jester's again any time I'm in Wilmington.

“WOW Breakfast WOW”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013 via mobile

We had the black bean patty topped oven baked eggs with a chipotle hollandase benedict sauce topped with sliced tomato & avacodas. Well we were a little skeptical but went with our waitress's recommendation, again all I can keep saying is WOW! What a great combination of favors, can't wait to try this one at home. Excellent, Excellent, Excellent............
