This bar has a very hard working friendly staff. The drinks are reasonable and the atmosphere is a trip back in time. It is really charming. You can have your drink in the KEB or go outside and enjoy your drink on a lovely porch. I would high recommend.

We like to stop in for a glass of wine and stay for the cheese they put out at 5:00 PM on Friday night. Great rocking chairs on the porch outside also.

Great little spot in the historic Chalfont hotel. Drinks aren't cheap, but the ambiance is pretty cool. I highly recommend this spot for a drink when you are in CM. But not too many ($$$$).

The classic atmosphere and laid back, friendly staff and guests made this one of the most relaxing experiences I've had in a long time. Sarah, the bartender, was... More

One of my favorite places in Cape May, the King Eddie at the Chalfonte Hotel is an easy, comfortable place to stop for a drink before dinner or for a nightcap later on. There is nothing fancy or upscale or self-conscious here, just a quiet, air-conditioned room with small tables and a few stools at the bar, plus, of course,... More

My husband and I loved this little bar in the Chalfonte Hotel. We enjoyed a few glasses of wine while we listened to the great music the bartender had going. There was also a small selection of vinyl albums that the bartender was happy to play on the turntable if requested. The bartender, Sarah, was very friendly. The bar had... More
