Sloppy Joe hand pie and the tomato-Zuchini pie are my favorites. Very unique combinations for soups and sandwiches. Everything is good. Too pricey for every day lunch.

Every single time I've been there, no matter what I've tried, it has been phenomenal. You have to be looking for this place to find it because it's off the beaten path but make a point of going there for lunch one day, you'll thank me later. Carolyn, the owner, is such a nice lady and she's always there making... More

Nice little place, too bad the taste was not there. As I have said before, "If it is not as good or better than at home", it is not worth it. I had the Watermelon Gazpacho and butternut enchilada, the Gazpacho was ok, it lacked the watermelon taste, the enchilada which was good but could have been tastier. My wife... More

In my opinion, this restaurant is the best place for lunch in the city. They also serve breakfast but I have yet to get there. It is on my bucket list to do!

I cannot say enough good things about this restaurant. The owner/chef is so creative with the very freshest ingredients which adds up to scrumptious and more. The menu changes according to availability of ingredients and never disappoints. Carol's desserts are the best in Wilmington. The place is small so do not waste time getting there at mealtime!

I have been a faithful Pi visitor for years, and the food is consistently excellent. Everything is made from scratch and super tasty. I especially enjoy all the salads. And the pies are freshly made each morning and so yummy! Keep in mind that Pi is only open Mon- Fri for breakfast and lunch.

Flying Pi Kitchen offers fresh food with friendly service right by the courthouse in downtown Wilmington. They are open 7-3 for breakfast til 11 and then lunch, but have an assortment of pies, muffins, cookies, and bars as well. They described the blueberry/carrot/coconut muffin as "crack" and it was absolutely delicious with their homemade strawberry jam. The turkey pita and... More

From the minute you walk in and are greeted by the owners and staff to the final good-by, you will have a great experience. Everything that I have eaten here has been so tasty. Don't miss the deserts....they are awesome.

This small breakfast-and-lunch restaurant is informal (order at the counter). We had the 3-salad plate, which is a generous sampling of any of the salads on the menu, served on a bed of greens with a brioche roll. Each of the salads was excellent. Tuna and chicken salad were seasoned just right, and the fruit salad was as fresh as... More
