I visited there as a local and host to friends. Everyone was impressed with the service and quality of the food. They were from New York and could not imagine we had come so well established as a good food place.

One of our favorite restaurants in Cape May for breakfast and dinner. Four of us all agree that the coffee at breakfast is a disappointment. We ask a small favor to reconsider their coffee brand. It takes away from what otherwise are great breakfasts.

The only good thing was the service. Many other restaurants provide more choices and larger portions. Would not return. Have been back to Cape May several times and went to other restaurants for meals.
