A Little Gem

In my 4 day stay, we dined in what is considered many of the more upscale restaurants in Cape May. Although Depot Market is just a little place, the food was by far our best find. I had the most delicious crab cake sandwich I have ever eaten, lots of crab, little bread crumbs. My husband had some... read more

The Depot Market Cafe in Cape May, near the Bus Depot and Information Center, continues to provide an excellent selection of salads, sandwiches and other selections for hungry beach-goers. Open for breakfast, lunch and early dinner, the Market has limited seating focusing on take-out. There is no skimping on the salad portions nor sandwiches, easily more than you might be... More

Great location from where we were staying, could walk there every morning for a delicious breakfast sandwich made to order and a different variety of quiches everyday! Fresh baked variety of muffins and great coffee!! Woman who we saw everyday was pleasant and friendly. Wish I had found this place the first day we were there, lost a few days... More

Besides having a delicious lunch menu, they cater as well! We went in for lunch and ended up ordering some catered food for 20 of us. (Sandwich platters, salad platters and a pasta dish.) Very gourmet for such a little place! The owner, John used to be the executive chef of Martini Beach. You've got to taste it for yourself.... More

I used to come here all the time in high school and they were so good! Even though they have new owners I ordered a cheesesteak and it was delicious! The staff was very friendly too!

When I walked in to the Depot Market Cafe, I was not aware they were under new ownership. I stopped in for breakfast and had a delicious egg bagel sandwich and it was perfect! Customer service couldn't have been better as well. The only thing that disappointed me was the lack of a printed menu, however it was pre-Memorial Day... More

Stopped by three times. Last time (5/20) it was closed even though the open flag was flying. They don't have the new menus and don't know when they are coming. They are complaining they haven't had very much time to prepare and the don't know how the chef will eventually prepare things. If you're not read to open, do what... More

The Depot Market Café has changed hands and has been open under its new ownership about three weeks. The previous owners had offered only a limited breakfast menu, a few pastries, and a quiche or two. I had heard that the new owners were offering an expanded breakfast menu so my wife and I visited to investigate. We asked Josie... More

Under new management the week we stopped in for lunch and breakfast - both delicious. All baking on premises. Highly recommend their homemade soups, made with bone broths and slow-cooked. Their Cuban black bean soup, a traditional family recipe, was incredible. Owners are very gracious, friendly, and eager to please both long-time regulars and newcomers.
