Port City Java in Wilmington, North Carolina is going downhill...
Used to be that when Mark and Lynn needed a good caffeine fix (in Wilmington) they would head to Port City Java, a coffee house that is as omnipresent as Starbucks on our own Long Island turf. The coffee drinks were good, and there was some exceptional Asian Style Chicken salads as well.
On our most recent sojourn to Wilmington it seemed that the regional coffee giant had slipped noticeably all the way around. The coffee was watery and had basically no taste. It seemed that the menu had been reduced and the upkeep of the places seemed shabby and careless. Worst of all, the places smelled like cleaning fluid; being clean is one thing, smelling like a college dorm is quite another.
