Before you start your busy day in Cape May. Go out for a walk or bike ride along the beautiful boardwalk and get yourself breakfast her. You are right on the ocean. View is to die for.

We came across McGlade's by accident while walking on the boardwalk in Cape May and so glad we did. It is a sweet little eclectic restaurant right on the beach that allows dogs and if you are a dog owner, you know pet friendly places are few and far between in the northeast! Our dog, Lizzie, sat right at the... More

This is the one place that I make sure to get to for breakfast. The food is excellent, and it is located right on the edge of the beach. Sometimes you can even see the dolphins swimming past.

McGlades on the Pier has been our go to place when friends and family are in town. The omelettes are amazing and the view is spectacular. Who could as for anything more! Service is usually great too! Don't for get to bring some champagne for a special brunch. They are totally prepared to keep your bubbly chilled!

My husband and I were staying in Ocean City, NJ, but took a drive one day to Cape May. We wanted to eat overlooking the ocean, but being a mid-September weekday, not many places were open. McGlade's happened to be, so we went in. For a while, we were the only customers. I ordered shrimp salad on a croissant and... More

Lunch here is always a pleasant and good choice. Sitting out on the screened porch you have the chance to view the ocean and all the pesky seagulls who would love to have a bite of your food. We usually have breakfast, even at luncbut you can't lose no matter what you choose. Really like the BLT's

The beach was right outside of the screened patio we ate on. The food and selector was pretty good. We went for breakfast and the selection of omelets was good and they had their clever names related to, presumably, the restaurant family. The food came quickly and the waitstaff was friendly and attentive. I would certainly return.

Thank Chuck D
