“Excellent, delicious and healthy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

This small BYOB restaurant located among a very unassuming set of stores is wonderful. The husband (chef) and wife (hostess/server) team take pride in providing healthful, delicious organic vegetarian and seafood dishes; and they really deliver. Food is locally sourced (except the olive oil, which comes from their family's olive grove in Italy), fresh and delicious. The environment is relaxing and the service attentive. We both had breaded baked scallops, quinoa, and shared a serving of kale and a salad. All was perfectly prepared.

“Great Food in Cape May”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

Good Earth Organic Eatery is a hidden gem in Cape May. The four course vegan meal that we had on Sunday, May 26th was superb! The food had that clean taste that one associates with the finest cooking. The first course was a bean and kale soup that was delightful. The salad that followed was good but I am not a fan of cilantro. The entree was an amazing mix of flavors with pasta in a carrot-ginger sauce, kale with radishes (never had cooked radishes before and was amazed at the flavor!), brown rice with pumpkin seeds, chick peas. It was packed with amazingly subtle flavor. If you walk by the restaurant, you might think that the hole-in-the-wall atmosphere would be a turn-off. The tables are rickety. The place was not the sort of environment that one would expect fine dining. The giveaway was that most of the customers brought their own bottles of wine--and that is not what one expect in such an unappealing dining environment. This is one of those places that does not look like a fine restaurant but it is just that. Let the food represent the restaurant not the furnishings and you will be pleasantly surprised. Can't wait to go back! They currently do not have a website. Check the facebook page for news and specials.

“A great experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

I have had the pleasure of having Hilary and Contrano cater a fundraiser on May 19 for 75 people and have had a couple of socials at their restaurant. It has been a great experience! The food is very tasty! Who knew vegetarian cooking could be so delicious! I would recommend them to anyone who is thinking about putting more vegetarian cooking in their lives. It has changed the way I think and eat!!

“Delicious nourishing food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

This cozy little restaurant is a gem. The chef is Italian and creates nourishing and flavorful dishes. His wife serves, and makes you feel like you are visiting her home. The food is organic, and gluten-free dishes are available. I had a crisp mixed greens and apple salad with a delicious vinaigrette dressing, followed by red snapper risotto, which was excellent. My husband had a quinoa and vegetable dish. I would make a reservation, as the restaurant is very small.

“A rare gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

This restaurant is truly a gem. All the ingredients used are organic and the meals are prepared with attention according to principles of healing, curative cuisine, which means that they are not only delicious, but truly nourishing - after eating here I felt energized, balanced, and deeply nourished, which is something I have hardly ever felt after a restaurant meal, and I have eaten many. The owners are really dedicated to their work, doing something that matters to them, and you taste and feel this in the food, which has a completely different quality. You feel that for them this is a labor of love.
I loved the food, and my body loved it. Thank you.
