We have been walking past this restaurant on our visits to Cape May for years and can't believe we have been missing this delicious food. Went to Freda's with the Cape May Food Tours and had the most delicious Crab Focaccia we have ever had. It is obvious everything is homemade and the taste was amazing!! The atmosphere was nice...

We were in Cape May last week, and this cafe was recommended to us. The food was good, although I had some trouble finding a dish that truly appealed to me. The service was fine, but the space was incredibly tight on a Friday night, and the decibel level was way higher than I was happy with. The table next... More

Had a wonderful lunch here. We were looking for an alternative to the touristy Ugly Mug and stumbled on Freda's, right around the corner. After reading the menu, I was settled on the chicken salad in a croissant but then discovered the special was homemade macaroni and cheese with a salad, so of course that was irresistible. The friendly server... More

Tiny place with some outdoor seating. Friendly staff, A little close inside but worth it. The food was very good. Located by the mall, went after church on the mall.

While we were relaxing at the B&B we were staying at I started looking at a book about Cape May Restaurants. I saw the pictures of Freda's & we have eaten there many times. The presentation of the Rack of Lamb had me there. We called & got a reservation for 2 at 8:00 PM. We were immediately seated &... More

Walking through Cape May for a Girl's day out, we came upon Freda's Cafe, looked at the menu and decided we were too hungry to walk any further. Could not have asked for a better spot, mind you, I have walked past the cafe many, many times before. Varied menu, very fresh, clean, quaint, great service but even better FABULOUS... More

Food was delicious, reasonably priced and convenient to Washington Street mall. Be prepared for a small setting, but it is worth it. Top off the dinner with an ice cream dessert from one of the parlors on the mall.

We visit Cape May NJ for a couple of days every year. Every visit we have lunch at Freda's. Their food is always fresh and well presented. We are not into the fried foods, or junk food, that many people prefer. We search out restaurants that provide healthy food with decent portions and Freda's never fails. Their staff is attentive...

This is a small and very intimate restaurant with fabulous food. Anything we've had there was great. However, if you do not like sitting close to other parties, this is not the place for you!
