You’re surrounded by quaint scenery while vacationing in Cape May. Before you take on the beach or The Promenade, there’s nothing better than stopping in for some breakfast or lunch at one of the outdoor cafes in Cape May. Beach views, tasty food, and a hot cup of coffee are all waiting for you!.
Bella Vida Garden Cafe
Bella Vida Garden Café lives up to its name with its tucked-away and serene outdoor dining area. Order one of their ultimate omelets or other breakfast favorites and enjoy some tasty food under the ivy-covered pergola in their lush green garden. There is a unique charm to their café and it being a family-ran establishment makes it a warm and accommodating experience while eating there.
If you’re looking for the ultimate Cape May Marina views while dining, stop in at Saltwater Cafe! This is a dockside breakfast and brunch spot with a terrific dog-friendly outdoor patio. Order some mouth-watering French toast and take in the views of the Cape May waters and docked boats in the marina.
McGlade’s on the Pier
Enjoy the sea breeze and sounds of the ocean waves with a stop at McGlade’s on the Pier. They are famous for their omelets served during brunch and have even been featured in The New York Times! Not only do they have a great breakfast/brunch menu, but lunch and dinner by the beach are available too.
Out There Coffee
Starting out as two coffee enthusiasts, Nikki and Craig’s love for the coffee-making experience is brought to life at their café Out There Coffee. Grab a uniquely crafted coffee, take a seat on one of their outdoor benches and admire the beautiful views of Ocean Street.
