|Bay Breeze Cafe at Larsen’s Marina|
The Bay Breeze Cafe is a tiny, almost hidden, gem that is right outside of Sea Isle City – a neighboring island of Ocean City, NJ. Connected to Larsen’s Marina, the rustic building hugs the waterside and is literally wafted by salt-scented breezes. Seating is at the counter or at tables on a enclosed porch surrounded with windows.
But you need to visit for the food.
Serving Breakfast and Lunch, the food is fresh, local, and imaginatively prepared. There are certainly familiar favorites – generously-sized crab cakes or Philly cheesesteaks, for instance – but also some offerings that have a bit of a California-vibe (inspired by the owner’s time in that state). For example, there’s quesadillas, home-made salsa, and delicious fresh salads. When we visited, the family had been berry picking to supply blueberries for breakfast pancakes. Special selections are based on what’s fresh and in season making for delicious surprises each time you visit. And always the emphasis is on quality ingredients…carefully prepared.
The Bay Breeze Cafe is about a 20-minute drive from the Scarborough Inn, but a little tricky to find, so please ask for directions. Lunch at the cafe would be a great respite when exploring Cape May County!
