Spoonfed Kitchen & Bake Shop is now open in Lumina Commons, serving breakfast, lunch and a wide variety of specialty carry out items.
Owners Kim and Matt Lennert have transformed the space at 1930 Eastwood Road, formerly The Seasoned Gourmet, into a warm and inviting café with plenty of sweet and savory offerings.
For many years, the Lennerts owned and operated Moveable Feast, a catering company and café in the Chicago area, growing it from a small quirky café to a company with dozens of employees. But the proximity to family and the lure of warmer weather brought them to Wilmington last year.

“Our mission with Spoonfed Kitchen is to create wholesome, delightful food to feed your lifestyle,” Matt Lennert said. “Wholesome means using fresh ingredients, preparing everything from scratch and using local and organic products whenever possible. And the delightful aspect is us putting our own twist on things to elevate each dish.”
Spoonfed Kitchen seasons and roasts all of its proteins in-house, including roasted turkey, a rosemary and garlic porchetta, and house-smoked salmon.
The breakfast menu ranges from super oats and almond chia pudding to more decadent items such as French toast prepared with orange and vanilla scented brioche, maple syrup and dark chocolate shavings. There are also plenty of breakfast sandwiches and tartines with toppings such as smashed avocado and hard boiled eggs or fresh ricotta and preserves.
The lunch menu includes several sandwiches, salads and plates made for sharing. Many of the dishes, salads and sides are available by the pound for carry out, as are several frozen dishes such as lasagnas and casseroles designed to feed two to three people. Spoonfed also offers frozen cookie and scone dough that can be baked at home and will soon be offering some frozen appetizers, homemade sausage and crab cakes.
“Our prepared carry-out items will be ever evolving,” Kim Lennert said. “We look forward to seeing how our customers respond.”
As for sweets, Spoonfedbakes everything in house, from cinnamon buns, muffins and danishes, to coconut cream pies, cookies and brownies.
Spoonfed also carries a variety of unique retail items, as well as artisan cheeses, snacks, condiments and beverages such as Cannonborough Beverage Co. sodas.
“As of now we’re the only ones in Wilmington carrying this line of sodas on tap and by the bottle,” Matt Lennert said.
Cannonborough sodas are made in Charleston from fresh-pressed juices, hand-picked herbs, fresh fruits and all-natural sweeteners. Spoonfed offers flavors such as strawberry jalapeno, honey basil and grapefruit elderflower.
The Lennerts say that they designed the space to be a versatile community gathering space and plan to host private events in the off hours and welcome groups of any size to reserve space during normal business hours.
“We know that everyone is busy, and it’s our goal to make high-quality food accessible to people in three ways,” Matt Lennert said. “First, by dining in, second with easily accessible carry out options, and third with catering, either delivered or event-style catering.”
Spoonfed Kitchen & Bakeshop is open from 7 a.m.-7 p.m. Monday through Friday and 7 a.m.-4 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
