I've been coming down to Cape May every summer for the past 20 years, but I just never noticed Freda's Cafe, right next to the Washington Mall. Since in the past we've had bad experiences at some other Cape May establishments, I decided to take a look at TripAdvisor and chose Freda's. We got there around 8 and luckily there was space for a table of 4 no reservation. There is a main menu and then a specials menu, the latter looking much better. We ordered a goat cheese salad with pecans which was great. We forgot it was BYOB but the key lime raspberry lemonade was delicious! I got the sesame ahi tun, which was a bit dry but very passable. However, my brother and mom got the crab cakes and THEY WERE TO DIE FOR! I agree with the other reviewer who said that Freda's had the best crab cake in Cape May. Jumbo crab mean with a mango sauce and delicious whipped potatoes and green beans; a far cry from bread-crumb-filled crabcakes! We were too full to order dessert, but they looked good. The one thing about Freda's is that it is on the expensive side. The average entree hovered around $28-30, although that did include salad. Overall, I'd definitely recommend Freda's Cafe!
