Oat meal with huge blueberry's, strawberry's, nuts etc. Their pancakes are the best we have ever eaten.Fresh squeezed juices,waffles, eggs any way you like and like you will. Plenty of... More

Spend two nights in this centrally located bed and breakfast. The breakfast was unusual for a b&b in that it was off a regular breakfast menu and served on an outdoor porch. The food was terrific, and eating on the porch was very nice. At 5:00 each evening they have musical entertainment and one can sit on an upstairs veranda... More

Stayed for 3 nights at this property. Overall, we had a nice stay - the good parts were very good, and the bad parts were mild annoyances - but I think this property needs to decide if it wants to be an upscale B&B or a kitschy beach party spot. Right now it feels a bit schizophrenic. The good: the... More

My husband and love this Inn in Cape May. The room was very clean and nicely decorated. The only negative was wish they had a flat screen tv, instead of old style TV. The breakfast is so delicious, the waffles, french toast and my Husband's favorite 2,2,2 special. The porch is so nice to enjoy the food or for cocktails... More

This was our second trip to Cape May but our first stay at Elaine's. The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating - they really enjoy taking care of their guests. Breakfast on the porch was relaxing and of course, delicious! Every evening between 5 and 9 pm you could sit outside and enjoy light fare dining while listening to music.... More

We just did a last minute one-night stay in Cape May and chose Elaine's because we had stayed there before. The staff were very friendly, professional and accommodating. The cleanliness of the room and the common areas of the inn were beyond reproach. What was new for us was the dinner menu, which time did not allow us to try,... More

We stayed for one night at this Victorian bed-and-breakfast during our Cape May weekend getaway. We were given room #8 and, we found it to be both comfortably cozy and, elegant. The breakfast on the porch was superb ... starting with the detail that all tables had white line tablecloths and, linen napkins (hate paper napkins!!!). The breakfast choices presented... More

After a walk around we returned for a meal.We were seated on the verandah and the service was excellent. All the staff were very friendly and our meal was... More
