Take a break from exploring the Wilmington waterfront and settle in for a little romance and fine French cuisine with a stop at Le Catalan French Cafe and Wine Bar. As the name would apply suggest, Le Catalan specializes in delicate French fare that’s complemented with wine, and with a picturesque view of the adjacent Riverwalk and the Cape Fear River, is a perfect spot to linger, dine, and watch the on-the-water world pass by.

The menu is simple, light, and refreshing, and features a selection of sandwiches, salads, special seasonal entrees, and desserts. Patrons who simply want a snack to complement a fine glass of wine can sample the cheese or charcuterie plate, or the Mediterranean Trio with olive tapenade, sundried tomato pesto, hummus, and a French baguette. Hungrier patrons can munch on a fresh salad - like the renowned Crab Salad - or a small entrée like the tasty Les Feuilletes – a puff pastry filled with ham and Swiss or mushrooms, and mixed with a creamy cheese sauce. Above all else, diners should save room for the decadent chocolate mousse, and should enjoy an extra glass of wine or a cup of coffee to enjoy the beautiful waterfront just a little longer. With exceptional views, Le Catalan is the perfect spot to relax and simply enjoy an afternoon in the pulsing heart of the Port City.
