Cuddled-up in the corner of the South Jersey Marina is this wonderful little Saltwater Cafe. Their breakfast selections are plentiful and the meals served are divine. We enjoyed a couple of the best omelettes from memory and their delicious coffee hit the spot. Customer service...was second to none and the prices were exactly inline with what we were expecting. We’ll definitely return.More

Looked good but they forgot our order and we had to leave. We won’t be back. Seemed a bit pricey but not getting a chance to try the food, difficult to judge the value.

We visited Cape May on our last day in the area. We made a reservation here because it stated it had a view to the water. It happens to face the marina. The hostess was nice and seated us quickly. The food was delicious! I...had the classic eggs benedict and it was very good. Not salty and just the right amount of everything. The home fries were delicious too. The service was good and our waitress was wonderful. The food came out quickly and warm. I would definitely eat here again if I am in the area.More

Excellent lunch with a beautiful view of the marina...the specialty juices are delicious. Napa club is fantastic - so fresh! Brioche french toast - outstanding. Perfect place for a relaxing break and great food.

Very friendly with great service and food, they are located only a block from the Cape May Whale Watching Cruise so it was a perfect way to end a perfect day trip. My family loved their food; the waffles and chicken were still good three...hours later at home...and that was just cold out of the container. Will definitely eat here again.More

The breakfast is excellent. The bacon is very salty and so good. The waffles are also excellent. The service is very good and the dinning area is very nice,

The french toast with bourbon butter is something to look forward to as a difference maker from your run of the mill french toast. The staff is very attentive and very personable. The fact one can dine outside is just a huge plus.

After taking the 2 hour Salt Water Skimmer we saw this restaurant nearby. I had the reuben with turkey and my friend had a salad. both were delicious! It was a beautiful day and we sat outside where we could enjoy the view of the...boats and water. It was very reasonable. Unfortunately they close soon for the winter, but I will be back next time they are open.More

Finally got around to getting here for breakfast. We I think of Cape May, I think of the 1 second view coming across the metal bridge past the marina. The Saltwater Cafe sites right on the marina and I could think of a better way...to start the day. Fantastic breakfast, great coffee and OJ. The service was fast and friendly. A couple of places come to mind for breakfast or lunch, but the now there is only one spot on my short list.More
