We love this spot. The coffee is great as are the sweets and bagels. Best of all is the ambiance that goes with the great cup of cappuccino!

This could be your "third place" in Cape May. Cozy and friendly atmosphere, great coffee selections, Pastries and other bottled beverages, teas, smoothies, etc. etc. A great place to sit down to read, talk, computer over coffee and other drinks.

Stopped by late morning for iced chai latte. Nice vibe & good retreat from touristy walking mall area. Baristas were friendly & efficient. Chai was a little weak, but added pepper & cinnamon on the side bar helped to bolden the flavor.

My family visits Cape May every July and we get our coffee here- every day. It boasts great quality coffee, a small bakery and a quite environment which is great for anyone wanting to bring their lap top and catch up on work. Highly recommend!

We've been stopping here for several years to grab our morning coffees - always a delight! They have a great menu, pastries and non-dairy options.

Great baked goods - but get there early. The croissants disappear quickly. The service is pleasant and the selection of drinks is extensive.

I felt blessed and liberated to find a quality option for coffee beyond Tommy's Folly in Congress Hall right under my nose. If staying in Cape May (and in particular in Congress Hall hotel), look no further -- Magic Brain is the solution. It's quaint,...More
