great food. Great people. Great soup. We love it here. Breakfast is good as well. I wish I could eat up some yummy Jesters Cafe right this very second.

Great eats. Silly art on walls. We get to see them cook our chow. Great staff. The guy I think was the owner seemed like a nice person.

Visiting my brother in Wilmington and were looking for a place to have lunch. Just scrolled through tripadvisor and saw Jester's had some good reviews and decided to give it a try. Great lunch, reasonably priced, and loved the jester motif. We also enjoyed popping into antique shops on the street. We will definitely be back!

I have been here several times, both for breakfast and lunch. Good food every time! It is a local place and one of my favorite spots in town. Great food and service! ( I love the BFF for breakfast, bacon, avacado, cream cheese and tomato on a bagel!)

This was recommended to us by a local resident and we're glad she told us about it. Four of us went for brunch while spending a few days in Wilmington. The coffee is great, service great and food great. One person had the daily quiche and loved it while I had shrimp salad - the dressing was to die for.... More

There was a long wait to order and receive our food. We had the eggs and grits-not enough grits (if there is such a thing. We would go back again and hope for better results as they were very busy.

We each got a piece of quiche, which was very good. Enjoyed the coffee and the eclectic atmosphere. The address is 607, not 606 as listed.

Great food. Friendly service. Menu is awesome. I had the "grown up grilled cheese". 3 cheeses, avocado, bacon and tomatoe on wheat bread. The desserts looked great but we were too full to try them this visit! Fun time shopping at antique shops then lunch at Jesters.
