The New York Times calls Cape May the food capital of New Jersey and as far as I can tell, for good reason. I for one, did not expect to be so wowed by all the yummy things we ate. Some of the places we dined at (The Washington Inn and Union Park) were found through recommendations from our b&b, but most were discovered through a fun food tour we embarked on.

Normally, I like to discover good food on my own but since we were spending such a short time in Cape May, I thought it wise to put our trust in a well-reviewed walking food tour and sample a little bit of everything. Our guide could not have been more delightful and more informed about the best restaurants and dishes around. Bob and I were so satisfied with what we ate that we actually returned to a few of the places we had visited.

As Bob and I walked to our tour meeting point that afternoon, we quickly realized we were the only ones touring for the day. Private tour for two, it is! Say that 5X really fast (personally, I have trouble with it).

fudge

The Original Fudge Kitchen 

The Fudge Kitchen makes the smoothest, most melt-in-your-mouth fudge I’ve ever tastest. I had to talk Bob down from buying a whole pound to a quarter pound. We’re trying to take our time with it, but I’m sure it’ll be done before the weekend hits. Yep.

And here is where I’ll stop torturing you to tell you that I want you to go to Cape May (Please go? It’s so amazing!) for the beach, for the beauty, for the history, but also for the love of FOOD!
