Just a couple of blocks from our home, this charming café has great coffee and an adorable patio in the back. I love to sit there in the morning to write in my journal.

This charming little restaurant in a historic house on Castle Street features delicious home-made quiche, salads, and sandwiches. We love the breakfast strata and the egg salad croissant. The artwork on the walls and black-and-white checkered floor create an artsy vibe.

Wilmington is known for its great seafood, but if you love cheese & chocolate, don't miss your chance to visit The Little Dipper. You can order an entire meal, or a la carte cheese & chocolate fondue with fruit, veggies, cake, and (of course) bread to dip. Don't miss the unique jellyfish aquarium hand built by the owner!

NOTE: The address is wrong! It's not on Front St. It's located at 21011 Market St. You wouldn't know it by the name but this is a spectacular Asian restaurant. We stumbled on it when we couldn't get into Burnt Mill Creek Billiards and Wine bar in the same shopping center. (Both are located behind the Port City Java on Market St.) This is not your run-of-the-mill Chinese or Thai restaurant. We shared the lamb satay with coconut rice, vegetable and shrimp fritters and beef wontons and we couldn't eat it all! Too bad. They were really tasty!

Located just off Market St., Indochine is a very popular Asian restaurant. The food is authentic and delicious. There is an amazing rear patio garden with a bar and thatched-roof tables. If it's nice, try to eat outside. You might have to get there early--they don't take reservations--but it's worth the wait!

Drinks & Nightlife

Go to jazz nite on Sunday nights but get there early--it fills up! The music is great and there is plenty of free parking in their lot. We're not sure if there is table service because we couldn't get in and had to sit outside.

Sightseeing

There is so much history in Wilmington! Be sure to take one of the many tours (we took the trolley tour, not the free one). They'll point out the highlights of Civil War history that forged the city.

Shopping

The Ivy Cottage is an amazing consignment store consisting of three separate buildings. They get new things in every day so, if you like to bargain hunt, this is the place for you!
