“One of a kind”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2014

In my opinion the Depot is the only spot in Cape May County where every item made there is outstanding. It truly is. I frequent this market when I walk my children in Cape May for many reasons: the food is homemade and delicious (soups are on par with gourmet restaurants and the carrot cake is amazing), the staff is super friendly and very efficient, and the prices are very reasonable (not to mention they offer many creative specials). To sum it up they are excellent at what they do! My only regret is Ive been taking my kids down to Cape May weekly for over 4 years and I just found out (thru word of mouth catering) about this place last fall. Cant wait to try their comfort dinners!

“Adorable quaint spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 January 2014

The lady behind the register who took my order was such a delight. I was in there for awhile waiting for my bus and enjoyed the coffee n food. The customers were basically all locals who all acknowledged each other by name. Excellent scene.

“Homemade Food off the Beated Path”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 November 2013

This little gem near Acme offers homemade and comfort foods. Even the salad dressings I'm told are made in-house! Their soups are traditional or at the creative flair of the cook. The salad greens look good and fresh and deserts yummy. Menue items include sandwiches, burgers, entrees like meatloaf, pasta, fish, and poultry. They do a brisk take-out business, also an option.
