We were passing through Wilmington on our way to Myrtle Beach and I found this little gem on TripAdvisor. It was fantastic!
It is small with only 6 or 7 tables and a small bar with seating for 5 or 6 in the back. They also have some outdoor/patio seating. But, when we entered we were immediately greeted by the gentleman behind the counter and asked to wait "3 or 4 minutes" at the bar while they cleaned a table for us. We were served water while we waited and I believe my husband picked a beer from the cooler as well.
The sandwiches/panini's were wonderful. HUGE servings with cool modern twists on basic deli sandwiches. We ordered the club and the rachel and both were delicious. The side of the daily mac and cheese was a big hit with my 7 year old who also declared her ham and cheese sandwich to be "the best lunch ever."
This place was easy to find and is definitely worth the wait.
The service was spectacular and we can't wait to go back the next time we are in town!
