“Salt Water Cafe”
Reviewed 25 October 2013

Clean - friendly - healthy offering in Cape May...Location is nice, although road nearby is noisy for outside eating, the harbor view is nice and makes up for it.
I highly recommend this place.

“Doesn't Get Better than this for Breakfast or Lunch”
Reviewed 13 October 2013

You can easily miss this restaurant as it is directly pass the Lobster House on the way into center city Cape May in the very next marina. You should try not to miss it.

The staff and operators of this establishment are wonderfully welcoming and genuinely friendly. We were asked both by our waitress and the manager if our meals were to our satisfaction and both actually stayed, giving us full attention, to hear our answer. This is a breakfast place but it looks like it could be an evening restaurant. It is bright, cheery and well-decorated but not overstated. The menu options are diverse and the food - we have been here 3 times since September - has been outstanding. We will return yet again.

“You won't leave hungry”
Reviewed 7 October 2013

I was craving for some creamed chipped beef this morning before we left for home. The Saltwater Cafe (which is located at the Cape May Marina) was open before 7am so I thought I would give it a try. The portions were huge and they served you enough home fries to feed three people. The room was clean and bright with wicker chairs. Service was friendly. If you are an early riser like myself or you want to grab a quick breakfast before you head out on a charter, Saltwater Cafe fits the bill.

“Great breakfast and dog friendly”
Reviewed 1 September 2013

We had a great breakfast. A lot of basic breakfast foods, but they were cooked well. The pancakes were so good! They were very accommodating to our puppy, although they didn't offer a water bowl like other dog friendly restaurants we visited. We would go back again.
