Enjoyable afternoon cocktails with friends rocking in chairs on Althea's porch! You don't have to be staying here to enjoy the porches!

As vegetarians, we were pleased to find numerous options for us to choose from. We appreciated the variety of dishes and that you could order many of them as either an appetizer (small) or entree (large). So you could mix and match. We each got 2 dishes. I got (an appetizer) soup and an entree; my husband got (an appetizer)... More

Super great food but service was not great at breakfast. Had to watch for several days to see who was providing great service then ask to have that server. Ask for Dawn at dinner. She was super great! The combo of Aleathea’s Chef’s and Dawn’s service made our dinner a memory that will last us the rest of our lives.

Yes , the food here is great. Start to finish. But the real star was our server, Dawn. Dawn puts her heart into what she does. When she tells you what the special is for the night she doesn't just tell you off a list of items, she creates for you the experience of what each dish is and tells... More

A beautifully maintained Victorian guest house. The granola and yogurt are a great combination. The fresh fruit cup was also very good. the omelettes were done to perfection. I especially enjoyed the smoked mozzarella. The French toast flavored with orange liquor and pecans was tasty. The restaurant was very busy for an off season morning in October. perhaps they could...

Went there and had the "early diner special". A three course meal for $25.00. Even was excellent including the service. We ate on the porch and could see the ocean. I highly recommend.

We had dinner there our first night and we had a great meal. Lovely young lady as our server. We did make reservations and it was full but not too bad for off season. We stayed at the inn so we also had breakfast both days and everything was exceptional.

We had outstanding breakfasts at Aleathea's restaurant on two occasions during out stay in Cape May. They have crab and lobster benedicts which are excellent and the custom omelet I ordered was so good I had to comment on just how exceptional it was. Reports on the waffles and pancakes were also wow reviews. I loved being out on this... More
