I thought I had had great breakfasts but this place took the prize. The food was just amazing and the service really nice. Well worth the small wait we had one day!

This is the place to go on the Cape if you are looking for a good meal that is not tourist food. They offer multiple portion sizes which is a plus.

Delicious food, gracious hospitality. A great way to end a wonderful weekend on the Cape. Even though there is no ocean view, the decor is nice and the screened in patio is very pleasant.

August 24, 2014 - We've come to the Cape for the last 18 years. We always come to Van Rensselaer's for the Breakfast Buffet, never minding the long wait for a table. The Buffet is no longer available, that was disappointing enough. But we waited...More
