We were looking for an inexpensive place to eat before the two hour drive home. This place fit the bill. If you order from the mini menu or separate Dinner menu, it's like eating at a diner. The full menu is a bit pricier

Our family ate breakfast here twice during our recent visit to Cape May. We tried the omelets, pancakes, French toast, Belgian waffle and more. Everything was delicious. Service was friendly and fast, and we didn't have to wait for a table.

We ate here for breakfast while on vacation. We had tried other places, but found this to be the best in its area. The restaurant resembles a diner, but was very clean and tidy inside. It seems to be a family operation. We were quickly...More
