Nine Bakery and Lounge- Wilmington, NC

Lump Crab Benedict

9 Bakery and Lounge is located at 9 South Front Street in Wilmington, hence the catchy name. It has been on my short list since last summer and I finally had the chance to go there for brunch with two of my daughters, their husbands, my son and my mother-in-law. 

It was a warm day in late December and the restaurant was about half-full when we got there. It is well appointed inside with a spacious feel and there is a second floor loft with seating as well.  The seven of us were seated by a window and given menus. 


I pondered long and hard on my choice. The lump crab Benedict, the shrimp and grits, and the burger were my top choices. I decided on the burger and had them add gorgonzola in place of the goat cheese. It was cooked to the proper medium which I'd ordered and it was well-seasoned with salt, pepper and onion. Overall a nice flavored burger with excellent crispy fries.

My son-in-law got the lump crab Benedict with grits as his side and I tasted it. I found it to be quite good, both the Benedict and the grits. The rest of my party had a sampling of omelets and my daughter had the black bean burger which she said was excellent.

Overall, a nice dining experience, a bit slow on the service but not overly so. The food was good and the prices reasonable. I'll be going back for dinner the next time we're down.
