“Late lunch”
Review of Pender's Cafe

Pender's Cafe
Ranked #245 of 697 Restaurants in Wilmington
Cuisines: American
Description: A true downtown Cafe. Plastered in c.1950s artwork mostly bright red CocaCola motif this small cafe serves up some yummy lunches. Offers breakfast all day long. I opted for the Plenders Burger and was not disappointed. They subscribe to the KISS... Keep It Simple Silly... philosophy and it works for them. The burger is a hand made patty, rare in this day of prepackaged frozen meat selections. Great for a quick lunch on a budget. Five hungry adults and children ate for $32.

Ordered a sandwich from the sweetest lady. And sat down to relax after exploring downtown. Hamburger was ok. Not up to what I had hoped for. Don't think I would go back. Sorry!

To be expected, price is good for the food. The service is what stands out though. The woman working was super nice!

This quaint little breakfast/lunch cafe along Front St in Wilmington is delightful. The one waitress has honestly worked there 53 years. I'm thinking she came with the fixtures!!! The food is plain old good American fare. Wait time is about what you would expect. I just love the small quaintness of this place!!

Simple. No frills. Decent food. It is more of a diner, really.
