In my opinion the Depot is the only spot in Cape May County where every item made there is outstanding. It truly is. I frequent this market when I walk my children in Cape May for many reasons: the food is homemade and delicious (soups are on par with gourmet restaurants and the carrot cake is amazing), the staff is...

The lady behind the register who took my order was such a delight. I was in there for awhile waiting for my bus and enjoyed the coffee n food. The customers were basically all locals who all acknowledged each other by name. Excellent scene.

The Depot is owned and operated by some fantastic locals! The food is always so good no matter what time of day you are eating there. They are good for dine in or take out! Always a great meal!

This little gem near Acme offers homemade and comfort foods. Even the salad dressings I'm told are made in-house! Their soups are traditional or at the creative flair of the cook. The salad greens look good and fresh and deserts yummy. Menue items include sandwiches, burgers, entrees like meatloaf, pasta, fish, and poultry. They do a brisk take-out business, also... More

When I first arrived in Cape May I was directed to Depot Market by the staff across the street in the Welcome Center because there was about a 30 minute delay until a cab could come to take me to my hotel. It was midday and I'd just got off the bus from Philly after just a snack breakfast so... More

I almost didn't want to publish this. The Depot is such a find! Go here when you're tired of the overpriced food in the highly visible tourist restaurants. The Depot has a large number of entrees available including some delicious sounding specials. You would never expect it if you were driving by due to the restaurant's size. I enjoyed a... More

With so many pricey restaurants in Cape May, it is always welcoming to come back to the Depot any day for breakfast, lunch or dinner! This morning we came for breakfast. We had a New Jersey favorite - Taylor Ham, Egg, and cheese on multi-grain toast. My husband had his on a multi-grain bagel. Perfect! Fresh wonderful breakfast without breaking... More

Yes, it could be described as dinky. Definetly a shack. But after several visits, I love this place! It's off the beaten track, which is a good thing in Cape May, and the locals love it because its fresh! And cheap! Try the shrimp salad if you're lucky that day, sit outside, breath the sea air.

This little hole-in-the-wall shack that you probably would miss driving past it may just be one of the best restaurants in Cape May. If everyone knew how delicious the food was here, it would rival the Lobster House in customers. It's basically a little wooden outpost take-out place with a kitchen and four tables, but dear Lord in heaven was... More

Admittedly, we are Depot Market Cafe marks ... never had chicken pot pie with such a filoesque dough - and the chicken gorgonzola grinder is as good as ever. This little dinky place puts out great food from people who honestly care about your dining experience with them. They are personable and engaging and they don't slack off. You can... More
