Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

This is our go-to cafe in the area. Always top notch food and friendly service. Haven’t ever ordered anything that wasn’t great, and we always walk out plenty full! If you are passing through Wilmington, this is the spot for all meals!

Just as described in other reviews. Perfect independent breakfast place. Welcoming, both counter and tables, and far above average breakfast menu. Although you can get the usual diner breakfast of eggs/hash browns/toast, they also have a much more interesting selection of breakfast dishes. Loved stopping...there before a day of skiing.More

Place was very crowded as one of the only breakfast places in town that were open. The food was subpar and bland. Not sure why everyone raves about it. Rather just have Dunkin or cook in the room for the price.

Hands down the very best breakfast served by the best folks in the best venue!!! I’d drive the 3 hours from where we live just to eat here a few times! The lunch is also beyond amazing.

We got the berry-berry pancakes and a cajun skillet - both were very good! The pancakes were delicious, fluffy and came loaded with 4 kinds of berries, but not much maple syrup. There was an extra charge for more syrup. The skillet had sausage, peppers,...onion, eggs, potatoes and cajun seasoning. It came with toast. We'd order either again, though the pancakes are my usual go-to!More

A busy place with great food and service. The staff are friendly, attentive, and hustle. Lots of dining space with booth, table, and counter seating. A lot of seating with windows. A wide selection of food with something for everyone and very reasonable prices.

We enjoyed lunch at Dot's--the service--and entire place was friendly. One of us enjoyed the chili Dot is known for and the other had a grilled ham and cheese on rye. Both were good, but what was most exception was the friendly service.
