The Wayfarer Deli & Bistro is found in the heart of Downtown Wilmington along Front Street, and is a cool cafe that features bold cuisine with a surprising wealth of global influences. Never restricted to a certain type of flavor or food, this cozy restaurant that’s found in a circa 1900 historic building is a fine introduction to how uniquely flavorful the Port City can be.

Lunchtime and Happy Hour visitors will have a hard time deciding which corner of the globe to explore first, thanks to an extensive menu that borrows creative inspiration from all around the world. Focusing mainly on Paninis, sandwiches, and salads, (as well as homemade mac and cheese and soups), Wayfarer takes the “deli” concept to new and eclectic heights. Local favorites include the Chivito with seared Angus strip steak, smoked ham, hickory bacon, and fried eggs, as well as the Cuban Revolution with house-roasted pork, smoked ham, Swiss cheese, and spicy mayo. Can’t decide? Then go for the homemade meatloaf, which is a perfect example of southern home cooking in Panini form.

Always hopping, and always delicious, the Wayfarer Deli & Bistro is an elevated sandwich joint that will surprise visitors with its global creations, and all-around great taste.

Bijou Park

Bijou Park

Bijou Park is a hidden gem of a "blink and you'll miss it" attraction in Wilmington, and is a perfect spot for weary shoppers and strollers to find a quiet bench, stretch out their legs, and relax. Located in a rare gap in between downtown buildings on 225 N Front St, the park straddles the heart of Downtown Wilmington and a Riverfront parking area, but the section in between is quiet, peaceful, and buffered from the sound of the downtown traffic by the two tall but historic buildings on either side.
