Review: Mad Batter (Cape May, NJ)

The Mad Batter is a great spot for breakfast or brunch in downtown Cape May. Housed in an old victorian-turned-hotel, this restaurant has a front porch, main dining room, and garden terrace that seats year round. They have a fair-sized breakfast menu with enough variety for everyone to be happy but not too much that they over extend or you spend 15 minutes studying the menu and feeling undecided and slightly insane.

P and I shared the Bay Benedict, which is eggs benedict with crabmeat, and a vanilla waffle with pecans. Both were great. The eggs in the benedict were perfectly poached, the crab was good quality jumbo lump, ad the hollandaise was light and lemony. It came with really good, simple home fries that had a good amount of crispy crustiness, which I always like. The waffle was deceivingly light and just sweet enough that the maple syrup didn't over-sweeten it. The nuts were an excellent touch. They also have freshly squeezed juices on the menu, and I really enjoyed my fresh carrot orange.

The service was fast and friendly. If we are ever in Cape May again, P and I will definitely be back.

Mmmm! Sounds like a fun meal at a nice spot, I'm especially loving the waffle and carrot orange juice! The homefries look great as well, I love them extra crispy!

Carrot orange juice? Quite interesting. Do you ever feel weird when you take pictures of food at a restaurant? Maybe that's just me lol
