Restaurant Review

The Saltwater Cafe is popular breakfast lunch spot for diners who are looking for creatively prepared food and want to get away from the many traditonal pancake & eggs that populate the cape may/wildwood dining scene.

Saltwater Cafe is located dockside at South Jersey Marina overlooking the water and boats, formerly the home of Dock Mike's.

The kitchen is run by Chef Rob Guldin, formely Chef at the Carriage House Cafe & Tea Room in Cape May. who oversees the creative preparation of of some of Cape May's top breakfast items.

The ambiance and decor is attractive with a view of the marina from most tables. The interior is tastefully decorated giving off a nautical vibe with walls adorned nautical artwork.

There is outside dining on the patio ovelooking the marina

Open all year with seasonal hours. During the summer season they are open seven days/week from May Through October, 8:00am – 3:00pm Daily

Parking is available on-site with overflow street parking

How Do We Review (analyze) Restaurants?

New Jersey Leisure Guide strives to provide analytic restaurant reviews .

The methodology used is research, analysis driven --- as opposed to that of a single restaurant critic or a viewer comment posting board.

Data is gathered from our viewers e-mail restaurant comments, Internet research, and professional restaurant critics. The data is sorted, (weeding out the obvious biased, "bone to pick",  and out of consensus comments), analyzed, and the review is created.
