There are several new businesses in Cape May, that means new shopping and dining adventures! Though you won’t need it when staying at Leith Hall, as breakfast is supplied by Elan, there’s a new breakfast place near the Acme called Egg and Dart. If you’ve ever shopped at Galvanic, Cape May’s own little bit of Williamsburgh, Brooklyn, you’ll be happy to know that there will be a second location at 208 Ocean Street for the summer. So, if you’re young, cool, and slim, you know where to go. (I’m none of those things, so I don’t fit in the clothes.) Their first store is mostly black, so this one is mostly white. Very nice.
On Carpenter’s Lane (the parking street just before the Washington Street Mall) the Italian bath shop has been replaced with Quirk & Co, which is a gift shop specializing in items made within one hundred miles of Cape May. At the far end of the Mall, across from the Victorian Motel and Congress Hall, the popcorn shop has been replaced by new home of Victorious. You may know Victorious as the home of wonderful and interesting accessories and jewelry. They always have the most stylish and carefully chosen things, and I’m sure they will continue that great tradition in the new location. Speaking of jewelry, The new estate jewelry store that replaced Artisan’s Alcove at Ocean Street and Lafayette has a second location in Congress Hall. They are both called Queen May estate jewelry.
Most important, there’s a new bakery in town! On Beach Avenue, in the old movie house, is Madison’s Bakery – just right for coffee and a nosh during a hard day of lying in the sun.
Give us a call when you have a longing for a Cape May B&B. We’re here with breakfast, afternoon tea, and ocean views all ready.
