Start a trip to the beach or an exploration of the Cape Fear shoreline off right with a stop at Bon Appetit -  a fresh little breakfast joint that’s tucked away along Carolina Beach Road. Casual but welcoming, this little diner-style eatery packs a punch with classic fare that’s just unique enough to stand out in a crowd.

The menu is all-encompassing for breakfast fans, with lots of options for palettes of all varieties. Diners can build their own breakfast sandwich on Texas toast, Kaiser Roll, biscuit, or English Muffin via an assortment of proteins like Hatfield sausage, Applewood smoked bacon, country ham, or even a golden fried chicken fritter, and there’s also an array of biscuit specialties, gluten-free dishes, burritos and omelets, and specialty plates that are overflowing with classic a.m. fare. Newcomers with an appetite will want to start with the specialties, like the corned beef hash and eggs, the country fried steak or chicken and eggs, or the amazing “Out of the Park” grits with smoked bacon, cheddar, and parmesan cheese. There’s also plenty of sweet eats, like French toast or triple berry waffles, for a dessert-worthy start to the day.

From the basics to the decadent, Bon Appetit is a great spot to start an exploration of Wilmington’s creative southern cuisine.
