Beignets, bagels, coffee, espresso, cappuccinos, and a small local produce market! The folks here are so nice and welcoming, you'll just want to give them your money, even without their delicious offerings.

Check out this brothers-owned, local favorite with some of the best coffee and small, healthy dishes in town. If you enjoy a good chai tea latte, this is your place...they make all their chai tea blends in-house. They have a location in the Mayfaire Town Center as well, if you want to do some shopping with your drink.

Their well-known brunch runs 11AM-2PM Saturdays and Sundays, but they do so much so well, you'll be satisfied no matter when you show up. This is one of our favorite overall spots in Wilmington, and we usually try and get in before 9:30AM to beat the crowds! (you'll still get a killer breakfast before 11.) They're open for most of the day, so check them out for lunch & dinner as well. What's the best part you ask? Sweet n Savory makes all their baked goods in-house, from pastries to bread, and you can take some treats from the bakery counter to-go!

Dessert!... and drinks
Go-to spots for post-dinner treats
House-made ice cream in a variety of flavors with just as many topping options. Their milk shakes are as great as their ice cream, but Carla recommends a homemade waffle cone with Mocha Oreo ice cream! (add additional Oreo pieces on top for good measure). Their flagship location is on Military Cutoff Road if you find yourself getting some cravings while in the Wrightsville Beach or Mayfaire Town Center areas.

One of Wilmington’s top restaurants. Thai food served in huge portions and expertly decorated with both indoor and outdoor seating. While they will do call-ahead seating for parties of 8 or more, they do not accept advance reservations, so people start lining up outside at 4:30! They also offer take-out with the same high quality food. Pro tip: Try the wings and enjoy them as soon as they come out to your table.

Great for both dinner and lunch, Winnie's is a little off the beaten path, but is well worth the ride. They've got, hands down, the best burgers in Wilmington.
