When in Cape May, there’s one place you simply can’t miss out on for brunch: The Mad Batter. It’s booming in the summer with tourists lined up to get in, but on the off season, it’s peaceful and serene, just like the rest of Cape May. My friend, Angel, and I slipped in for a quiet meal on Black Friday and sat on the enclosed back porch by the flowers and fountains. It was the perfect spot to sample fresh-squeezed juice and homemade fruit breads.
I had the Chesapeake Bay Benedict, a delightful spin on traditional Eggs Benedict. The poached eggs sat atop succulent lump crabmeat and covered with caper hollandaise. The homefries were crunchy and well-seasoned. Angel ordered the special omelet of the day, filled with fresh veggies and lobster! She proclaimed it the best omelette of her life.
After a leisurely brunch, we wandered around Cape May to
burn off calories shop. We walked by the beach and the new Convention Center, hit some boutiques, and chatted away the hours. A perfect afternoon!
