This little gem in Cape May is a must. Food and service were wonderful. The rack of lamb was tender and cooked perfectly. Make a reservation, it's small and quaint.

My wife & I had lunch here before we left to go home. I had the crab cake sandwich & my wife had the spring rolls both were very good. Next time we want to go back for dinner, which is a completely different menu.
