From the moment you walk in you feel welcomed and relaxed. Our waitress,Susie, was very helpful and informative. The food was amazing. If there is fish on the menu, don't hesitate. We ordered our dessert when we ordered our entrees. It was a peach cobbler. Susie explained that the cobbler was made from scratch, as is everything here. One recommendation,... More

This restaurant is off the beaten path. The name seems a bit strange until you try this absolute gem of a restaurant. It is on a back street and the food is simply delicious. We have eaten here twice now - once last year and again this year. The Chilean sea bass was fantastic. Our 13 year old daughter had... More

You have to go to Backstreet ! Not only are the dinners fantastic, like the Chilean Sea Bass and the Grouper, but the breakfast is wonderful. I had the Crab & Asparagus Omelet. WOW ! It was simply delicious. What a wonderful experience in a casual and relaxing atmosphere.

Although there are a lot of great places to go for breakfast in Cape May Backstreet is more of a secrete. The food is very good, I had an omelette with beef tips, mushrooms, and onions and it was pretty darn good. You also get home fries and toast with your meal. They open at 9;00 Saturdays and Sundays only... More

A friend brought my wife and me to the Backstreet Cafe, which, as the name indicates, is on a back street, just a couple of blocks off a main tourist thoroughfare in West Cape May. The wait staff was extremely friendly, welcoming, and very knowledgeable about the preparation of the menu items. For starters, we loved the softshell crabs and... More

We love eating here. Tony and Teresa are great... and the food is awesome. We tend to eat the vegetarian stuff, but others rave about the fish and the clam chowder.

My parents drive 75 miles to visit me, or is it to have dinner at BackStreet Simply Delicious. Maybe a bit of both, but we always have an excellent meal there, BYOB is nice and you are never rushed out. Service is excellent and the new decor looks great.

We have lived in the area for close to forty years and had heard a lot about Backstreet Café, particularly this past year. We went on the last day of this season. A nice BYOB, the ranking here on Trip Advisor seems about right (top third of restaurants in Cape May). I had veal picatta, my wife had fish. The... More

We have been to Backstreet on several occasions, it is one of our favorite places. We love that it is a BYOB, and the food is wonderful, service very good. We had the corn and crab chowder, which was a winner, the lobster mac and cheese also very good. The appetizer of grilled asparagus with lump crabmeat was also good... More
