    It was a really nice place. Loved the artwork on the walls. Very accommodating waiters. Shrimp and grits were very good. Drinks were a bit pricey, so make sure you keep that in mind. Does Delaware have BYOB? I’m from Philly but never see BYOB. But overall I will go back

    The space is very modern and nice. The chicken and waffles was nothing special. It truly needed seasoning. The server was nice, she needs more training. She would walk a way for long periods of time after a request. The coffee was too milky and not hot enough. My little sister had the seafood omelet and short ribs and grits. Both were very tasty. The alcohol beverages are really good. The gratuity was already added into the bill and the server was not good enough for the calculated gratuity. It was very pricey for both the food and drinks for brunch. We wouldn’t choose to drive from MD for this again.

    The food was amazing! Even down to the presentation. From pictures of the restaurant we saw online, we didn’t understand that the majority of the seating is countertop dining. We were meeting a family who is attending the same college as our son for the first time. The seating arrangements made it challenging for us to converse. Also once our time was up, we were asked to leave so they could sit other parties. They have timed seating due to the limited space. We would definitely go back, but more for a casual dining experience.

    Went for a second time this weekend, wasn’t as busy as my first time. The food is great! The service is mediocre and the policies are exhausting. When you go out to eat you want things to be easy breezy, reservations need a credit card to reserve, $25 fee is applied if you downsize your party or forget to cancel 48 hours before…there is a service charge of 18% the first time I went the server advised that that was the tip the second time around I was advised that it was for the back of the house and it was not their tip which had me flustered so I just paid 18% on top of my bill and another 15% on top of that for a tip? The “service charge” should be worked in to the menu, as we’re already paying $20+ per dish for breakfast and another $20+ for cocktails so there should be more than enough in the price to cover the back of the house. Also, this is not black owned, they made sure to make me aware when I was advising my friend that it was….the owner is Cuban…but if she got stopped by the police I’m sure she’d be categorized as black. I hope that with the feedback that they are receiving they’ll improve because again the food is great and the ambiance is a vibe but it’s not worth the headache that the restaurants policies and procedures bring.

    Made a reservation. Drove from out of State to sit at a lunch counter and eat grease fried challah and drink an absurdly sweet latte. They served us disposable plastic forks, spoons, and knives--wrapped in plastic like from a take-out spot. Sat next to some lovely ladies who waited FOREVER for their food. My companion got shrimp and grits. Well seasoned but runny. Spent more than $60 to sit at a lunch counter and leave unsatisfied. Lovely young ladies serving food. Seemed timid but I would too under the circumstances. Won't go back.

    Small restaurant located right in Wilmington. The restaurant has a small area for tables, the rest of the seating is counter tables. Reservations are strongly recommended. Our server was not very personable, but was still pleasant. We ordered some lattes and they were just okay. I wanted a hot drink, but the server/waitress was not sure if the drink was made hot. I ordered the caramel chicken and biscuits and a side of cheese grits. The menu said served with eggs, but I definitely did not get any eggs served with my meal. The chicken was cooked perfectly and even had a bit of gold dusting to enhance the appearance. I just wish the chicken and the grits had tad bit more salt. Once we got our food, our waitress disappeared and never asked if everything was okay or if we needed anything else. The ambience is definitely there with the decor and the fresh flowers.

    The restaurant has a nice vibe. The esthetic was quaint and fresh. We made reservations and were seated immediately. It took about 15 minutes for the server to come and take our drink order. The food prices were reasonable and selection was good. The food came in about 20 minutes. The waffles were great. The chicken was ok. My lemonade was good. Some items that we ordered were forgotten and came out a little later. Something to note, Blume has table time limits. Apparently regardless of how long it takes them to serve you. Shortly after we received all of our food, the server came out and asked if we wanted boxes. She also brought our checks before we were even close to finishing our meal. We felt extremely rushed, especially for a party of just 2. Also, they add an 18% service charge to your bill. When I asked the server what the service charge was for he quite frankly said “oh it’s our tip!” My companion had unknowingly added an additional $10 to her bill because she wasn’t aware of the self imposed service charge. Overall it’s a 7/10 for me.

    Sooooo I ordered the chicken and waffles…. It was disappointing. The chicken tasted old/ like left overs Or It was frozen chicken that they reheated and not well. The food was barely warm. The waffle was ok but the blueberry butter that came with it was delish. The presentation was lovely. I ordered the morir soñedo drink- a drink that I grew up on. It’s a science to this drink. If done right, it should taste like a creamsicle. To much of either ingredient will ruin the drink. Sadly, they didn’t get it this right either. The service was great and our server was attentive, sweet and pleasant. I may have caught them on a off day, so I will try this establishment again. Hope they do better.

    It’s nice to see the old post house revived! Decor and menu go hand in hand, so expect a lot of lavender and lemon items. Drinks are light and inviting. I would suggest starting your meal with the enBlume as it is very light and refreshing— probably works as a pallets cleanser as well. Food could have used some salt and pepper, but the presentation really made the meal. I appreciate the consistency as well— I ordered the same dish as another party and it looked the same.

    The food was good and the presentation was cute but it was hard to enjoy my meal while being in between swatting flies and a dripping vent. I asked if the flowers, which attracted all these flies could be move away and I was told unfortunately not due to it being apart of the ambiance and I notify a staff and a manager about the leak and their response was, "thank you for letting me know." I didn't wait too long for my food, it was just that the food wasn't brought out at once, for example my meal came first then 5 minutes later my guest, then my sides, and then a part of my guest meal finally came out (eggs). My guest and I came from out of state and wanted to try this brunch spot out. So overall the place was cute and the people did generally seem like good people it's just my experience was not the best and I probably wouldn't recommend anyone based on it.

    We were really excited to eat at this new spot, but we left a bit disappointed. We entered Blume and received an extremely warm welcome from a very enthusiastic staff. We were seated at the bar and given our menus. We were given time to go through the menu since it is very detailed. Our drink order was taken, and we were told that there was no hot coffee, and no hot tea. That was a little disappointing, but we got over it and order a mimosa and a juice. We proceeded to order breakfast. I ordered the jerk chicken omelette and my husband ordered peach cobbler toast. The jerk chicken was not served as the menu described, it was an egg omelette folded over and topped with a gravy with pieces of chicken and old bay seasoning sprinkled on top along with shredded cheddar cheese. Old Bay was not what I expected when I order jerk chicken. My husband's peach cobbler toast was also disappointing. For starters, the peaches were from a can. He and I expected that the peaches would be fresh. The deep dish cinnamon french toast that the menu item indicated, was piece of over baked monkey bread, it was far from french toast. I think that the menu descriptions of the items are a little off from what is being served. We found it odd that we sat at the bar in front of all the deep fryers and griddles, and all of our food was prepared in the back and out of view. We really went into this experience with high hopes because we wanted a new breakfast/brunch spot, but unfortunately, it did not live up to the expectations, and I really wish it had.

    The restaurant is on the smaller side wouldn’t bring a large party , only bar seating heads up. Food was great, I had the short ribs, girlfriend had the chicken and waffles. I’d say this is more of an eating place rather eating + drinking. Small selection of cocktails. I would return to try some other food menu items for sure. Hopefully they add some bottomless mimosas or create the cocktails as a bit larger drinks for the price. Not sure why a lot of reviews complained and said they waited forever for food or drinks? Both came out rather fast on a Saturday afternoon. Service was completely fine.

    Impromptu day trips are always the best. In this case we headed to Delaware for brunch at Blume. Reservations are required for this small quaint diner style restaurant. It has all the Instagram worthy backdrops as it highlights Black art/history. They didn’t spare any decor as each wall (including restroom) is adorned in a colorful array of wall covering, floral arrangements, brass sconces and chandelier. The food presentation is that of a four star restaurant and the prices are reasonable. Parking in the rear is extremely small and tight so I recommend parking across the street at Foreman Mills. I give this place 4/5 stars and that is only because of the staff shortage today. Things happen….I get it….and I will be back. 😊 our food order included: avocado toast w/arugula, cherry tomatoes, pomegranate seeds and a savory sauce. Peach cobbler French toast and smothered chicken & biscuits

    I don’t usually write a review if I had a bad experience. But this was so bad, I will give just my thoughts. Bill for food and drink $54.00. Service charge 18% $9.72. Automatic tip $15.93. Total $79.65. So $25.65 added to bill. This was for breakfast for 2. Cheapest plastic fork and knife you can find. A paper napkin that was about 4 inches square. Cold home fries. Etc. and a long wait when we were 2 of the only four customers in the restaurant. Don’t think I ever had that bad an experience at that price ever before. And watch out. Cancel your reservation in less than 48 hours before and they will charge you $25.00 PER PERSON for not giving enough notice. When I was there at 10 AM to 10:45 AM only 4 seats used out of at least 30. I wish them luck with return customers.

    The only negative I have is the plastic spork. I'm not opposed to disposal utensils but I should have a knife fork and spoon available upon request. I ordered Banana Foster French Toast (which was delicious by the way) and only had a spork that was in issued in a plastic wrapper. Just not a good look for the price point. It really was a turn off.
