Was told by locals that this somewhat outta the way spot is a good choice for lunch. It was. Counterperson was very pleasant. AC was nice and chilly. Food was reasonably priced. And most importantly, tasty and fresh.

I wish there was another star that I could give to the Depot Market Cafe! We had Depot Market cater two events for our wedding weekend and we found both experiences to be highlights of the wedding. First off, the food is homemade, fresh, delicious and very reasonably priced. We had a house full of guests from Italy who can... More

My daughter celebrated her wedding in Cape May earlier this month. While visiting there in December, a Cape May local told us about the Depot Market Cafe and their delicious food and friendly service. I called to ask about catering and was lucky enough to have Josephine advise us about what foods would work best for family and a large... More

The chef, John, makes the best soups will will ever taste. His fresh sweet pea soup in particular, is unforgettable. This is a small local place worth seeking out.

Visited here on a cold afternoon for a quick lunch. I had the mushroom barley soup, thick with nice-sized chunks of mushrooms and vegetables. My husband had the chili, which impressed him. Rolls, used to sop up the broth, were delicious. Down-home atmosphere and lunch for under $10!

The owners are charming and the sandwiches and soup are excellent. The cooking is done on the premises and just the right amount for a lunch. We were looking for an informal place to have lunch. The Chef should be famous for his soups alone but the sandwiches are so tasty. The building looks unassuming but that's it's charm. It... More

No more "Best kept secret" in Cape May anymore. Josie alone is worth the trip! Their amazing homestyle cooking with a Cuban flair such as the empanadas. It was a perfect solution to feed guests buffet style without heating up my kitchen. Her pickled beets, honey fried chicken and, oh! Those mashed potatoes! One soup is better than the next.... More
