You may find this place listed as Jester's Cafe, but you will enjoy this little house, with small separate rooms, as a nice break from the extremely touristy places downtown. A short walk from downtown takes you here. Service is great, price is great, and the menu is simple, with many fresh choices. We went two days in a row,... More

This old converted house is a wonderful quant restaurant in the art district. My family had the quiche of the day and I had the Strada(an incredible slice of eggs sausage and cheese with home fries). The pumpkin mini muffins were a hit too. We will be back!!! A must for breakfast!

Neat spot in a historic home. Cute decor. Very friendly and excellent service. Simple menu. Enjoyed breakfast. Husband had country Benedict and I had quiche if the day. Yum to both. Hot, good and plentiful coffee. Scenic 15 minute walk from historic downtown through residential neighborhoods. Recommend.

This cafe has a small parking lot behind for its customers. The cafe is a little well worn. It could probably use a facelift, but the food is very good. The coffee was fresh, but probably slightly weaker than I am used to. We really enjoyed the French Toast Casserole. The name is probably a little misleading. It is really... More

There's nothing too fancy about this place, but it's always good. The staff is super friendly and the kitchen staff always ask how everything was when you pay...not people I usually even see, more or less hear them care how I enjoyed my meal. The chicken salad and potato salad are wonderful. You can never go wrong with the soup... More

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!
