We can’t help but love where we live – Wilmington, NC. In case you aren’t familiar with our beautiful city, we are located in coastal Southeastern North Carolina with a historic downtown and gorgeous beaches. We also have a bounty of amazing lovely shops and restaurants. To kick off our new “Local Love” series, our team is sharing our go-to brunch spots (and the yummiest things to order!) here in our beloved Wilmington.
Morgan’s pick: Sweet n’ Savory
The Wrightsville Beach French toast is incredible. They take their super thick cinnamon raison toast and create a rich, hearty French toast. My husband and I usually share this and the Paleo, a scrumptious but healthier option.
Lindsey’s pick: Blue Surf Cafe
This is just one of those dependable spots where you know everything you order will be good. Bonus points for being super kid friendly! For brunch, the shrimp and grits bowl is my go-t0.
Amber’s pick: The Famous Toastery
Typically, I prefer to cook breakfast at home on the weekends with my husband. But if we venture out, we love this spot. Made with avocado, tomato, bacon and parmesan cheese, their avocado omelet always makes me happy.
Madison’s pick: Poe’s Tavern
On a beautiful weekend, this is one of my favorite spots in town. It’s always hopping, but still laid back enough to bring my young children. You can order off of their full menu at brunch and I usually go for the fish tacos, washed down with a glass of rose.
Vinni’s pick: The Basics
Since we live downtown, my boyfriend and I love walking over to The Basics for weekend brunch. I usually go for the blueberry oatmeal pancakes served with walnut butter and lots of maple syrup.
