I love most drink items from PCJ. But I ordered a peach passion smoothie with no syrup at the downtown location and I saw them add ice, which is pretty messed up considering they brag about how they don't add ice to their smoothies! And the drive-thru at the Market street location isn't what it used to be!

Nice coffee shop, quick, great customer service and the Muscadine Soothy while expensive $5.00 for a tall, was definitely worth every penny as it was made with fresh muscadine grapes!

It's rare to find a coffee house that offers almond milk and this one does. Delicious. I got Mocha there twice and had to wait a little longer than I though strictly necessary for a half caf with almond milk...but it was during the morning rush so I guess that comes with ordering custom.
Allergies <eye roll>.

Anyway, great coffee and friendly smiles.

This was a great spot to stop in and grab an espresso after walking on the board walk. Stop in and get a doppio espresso...you won't regret it!

This is a great coffee shop in the heart of Wilmington. We were visiting and stopped in for a warm drink and it was very pleasant. This would be a great hangout place if I lived in the Wilmington area. Prices were a little higher than average but I chalked it up to being in a “downtown” environment. Definitely wold recommend!
