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.

When in Cape May one should try the Depot Market. It's a local find of great quality for food from and experienced chef at a very reasonable price. New to this location the chef has formerly been at Martini Beach and will be adding dinner very soon.

We found the Depot Market Café in 2012. My personal favorites have been the myriad of soups as well as the cod sandwiches. The service has always been nothing short of awesome - they care about your dining experience. Exceptional taste has been the norm for us; we always bring out of town friends here for lunch and they all... More

Found this place which is off the general path of tourists. Clean cute small restaurant, and food is prepared by professionally trained chefs. The price for all items is very fair and portions are generous. We a lunch there and a dinner....both great! I know the menu changes frequently.
