OK, let me just say that I am in love with The Red Store and with Cape May Point. I am really embarrassed to admit that all of these years that I have been vacationing in Cape May, NJ ~ I was unaware of the sheer cuteness of this western Borough of Cape May. On one of our many bike rides around town we discovered paradise in paradise. Just down Sunset Blvd, past the hustle and bustle of the downtown corridor of Cape May sits one of the most charming places I have ever been. When you arrive in Cape May Point, it feels almost like you have entered another era. It’s so quaint and peaceful ~ I felt like I stepped into a Norman Rockwell painting. Families are gathered at the circle playing volleyball, enjoying picnics, walking their dogs and conversing in front of The Red Store!
Deanna Ebner along with husband, Lucas Manteca (The Ebbitt Room’s Executive Chef) are bringing their love of farm to table goodness to the restaurant which is situated in the back of the general store. Our lunch was simply divine. We sat outside on a gorgeous summer day, sipped on Ginger Lemonade (highly recommend), chatted with locals, made friends with local canines and just enjoyed every second of a perfectly peaceful afternoon. The restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner!
Simply amazing Guacamole and home-made chips
My lobster roll, divine!
Hub’s delicious Fish Tacos
And don’t forget to give a warm greeting to Miss Emma, Deanna’s rescue pit bull little girl who is the sweetest doggie ever. But, don’t try to talk to Emma because she can’t hear you ~ darling Emma is deaf but, she enjoys a big hug and kiss from all patrons (and Emma likes to sneak in a couple licks herself)!
The Red Store is a local gathering spot where you can pick up some bananas, a beach ball and enjoy an afternoon ice cream cone.
Directly across the street from The Red Store is a quintessential small town, Catholic Church, St. Agnes.
Cape May Point and The Red Store along with its darling restaurant is a must experience adventure on your next trip to Cape May, NJ!
