Thank goodness there is a decent organic coffee place in Cape May. It is a little bit hard to find but once you know where it is it is very close. Actually a nice walk in the morning if you are staying on the beach...More

Had the quiche and fruit, and the Hemp Seed Bagel with Egg and Cheese, a Peanut Butter Banana Almond Milk smoothie, and coffee. It was truly amazing! It cost us $23 dollars plus $5 tip so I would not do this on a regular basis,...More

Truly fine coffees, organic foods, a pleasant place to lounge and enjoy reading, conversation, or to just sit and watch the passing scene. Indoor "living-room" and outdoor garden seating.
