Crazy Bone Café could be North Wilmington’s best-kept secret. Owner Wayne Phillips is the former owner of cult favorite Dreamer’s Café, and he’s brought the same mom-and-pop charm to his new place, where 26 fresh, creative sandwiches make up the bulk of the menu. In addition to faves like the Italian sub with prosciutto and sharp provolone (here it’s called a Bambino), popular sandwiches include the Picasso, with its homemade chicken salad, diced pineapple, dried cranberries, sliced brie and crushed pecans, and the Dragon’s Breath, with sliced chicken and turkey, jalapeños and a lime-chipotle sauce. Turkey and roast beef are cooked in-house and classic Buono Brothers Bakery in Chester, Pennsylvania, provides the bread.
Crazy Bone Café is all about fresh ingredients and plenty of them at a reasonable
price. It’s also about unique combinations, such as citrus-lime chicken salad with diced
pineapple and dried cranberries, sliced brie and lettuce, all topped with crushed pecans.
