Stopped for a quiet coffee and breakfast muffin. Ample choices, service was fast and friendly, and coffee even met our coffee-holic standards. It was early so not crowded, a nice pleasant morning on one of the sidewalk tables. Highly recommend.

Stopped here for a quick lunch and ordered a couple of panini. They were good - well heated through and through and the mozzarella was very fresh. Will definitely return and try some more of their menu items...Buon appetito!

Old school cafe reminds me of cafes that lined Morris Park Avenue when I lived in the Bronx. Excellent espresso and always prompt curtious service. Every year I visit Cape May I vist Cafe Buongiorno while walking the mall.

We go here every Sunday after church and they have the best coffee in town. Plus very nice pastries. Small, cozy and quaint.

This is a great place to stop and grab a coffee/latte/espresso while you're walking along the mall. The only drawback for us is that it was cash only.

My wife and I stopped in here for a cup of coffee and a pastry early on Saturday. I knew I was going to be happy because the coffee was a strong Sumatran blend. My wife had a cranberry muffin and I had the cinnamon roll. She liked the muffin. My roll was drier than I like but not horrible.... More

Espresso was average and weak. Cafe latte was average. Outdoor seating was a plus. Will look elsewhere for a good cup of coffee.

Cafe Buongiorno is a simple coffee stand that looks like it used to be an ice cream store. The coffee is OK, but there are better coffee shops within a few minutes walk.
