“Unique, high quality sandwiches”
Reviewed 8 June 2013

Really enjoyed this place on our way back home from a beach trip. A lot of tempting sandwiches to try. My wife got one of the veggie sandwiches, which was amazing. My roast beef sandwich was very good. Cool atmosphere in an older building. There was limited seating area, but was not a problem on our visit.

“Awesome sandwiches, friendly staff”
Reviewed 22 May 2013

This is by far my favorite sandwich shop in Wilmington. There is always something new, and there are at least five great vegetarian choices. The soups are always fresh and delcious. It isn't a place for a cheap, quick lunch, but I think it's worth every penny.

Not a lot of seating, but I've never had to wait, staff is great and very friendly. It's definitely not a place to take a big group. Can't go wrong with anything on the menu at Wayfarer!

Quaint café with a good selection and unique sandwich combinations. Wish we could go back everyday for a week and try something different.

“Great sandwiches!”
Reviewed 4 March 2013

Stopped in for lunch on a recent weekend getaway. Service was friendly and prompt, and the menu had a nice range of options. The sandwiches were of high quality and the soup was good. They have a good craft beer menu. I thought the prices were reasonable for what we got.
