The Eternal Sunshine Café, which serves innovative breakfasts and brunches in Leland and Wilmington, announced the closure of one of the locations on Friday.

According to a social media post, the decision was made to increase staff at the Wilmington site and offer better products and services – and support existing staff.

“We would like to thank all of our loyal and trusted regulars customers for all the continued support, especially in these difficult times,” the post read. “We appreciate all the love in Leland and hope you will always make the trip to the bridge to dine with us at our Wilmington facility.”

The Wilmington location at 420 Eastwood Road opened eight years ago and was the first for the restaurant which serves unique Egg Benedictine, mimosas, pancakes, entrees and desserts.
