“One of the Best Kept Secrets in Cape May”
Reviewed 26 September 2013

The Carriage House Cafe at the Emlen Physic Estate is one of the best kept secrets in Cape May. Located in the former carriage house & stable on the estate grounds; the atmosphere is pleasant and laid back. The menu is reasonably priced; with a good selection. A cup or bowl of the Gazpacho Soup is not to miss!

The wait person was attentative, professional and attractive which was a plus!

“Delicious Lunch”
Reviewed 25 September 2013

Had the Tea Room special which included a sweet tray, tea sandwiches, dessert and a pot of tea served in a china tea pot/cup. The food was tasty and the presentation was lovely. The Tea Room is located in a converted carriage house and the atmosphere was very cool.

“Great Resturant”
Reviewed 24 September 2013

I had an excellent lunch in an elegant setting. The food, ambience and service were standouts in the resort town of Cape May where very good resturants are the norm. A very pleasurable dining experience which I recommend to everyone visiting the historic town of Cape May. You will not be disappointed.

“Too good to be true”
Reviewed 22 September 2013

The Carriage House Cafe is a great find in a City with many great restaurants. The ambiance is great and only surpassed by the food, and the tea.
