Mother's Day

Treat mom to a special Dinner at the Ebbitt Room

Overlooking beautiful Jackson Street, this quintessential summer spot offers the relaxing hum of a canvas ceiling fan, the excited chatter of beach-goers ambling by, the clacking of horse drawn carriages and from sea breezes that rustle the leaves of two large Japanese Gingko trees just beyond the porch's banister.

History has been a major influence not just on the dining decor, but on the new drink list as well where inspiration has been drawn from "the golden age of cocktails.” The new drink menu highlights the classics, like the Hemingway Daiquiri and Singapore Gin Sling, which were introduced during the late 19th century.

The farm-to-table philosophy of the Ebbitt Room has also extended to the bar, where the focus is as much farm-to-glass as possible. Hand-crafted cocktails are made with fruits muddled by hand and the natural flavors are infused into the drinks creating a refreshing combination.

There is no better place to end your day or start your evening than Cape May’s favorite front porch while enjoying hand-crafted cocktails and small plates such as cured meat board, pale ale crispy calamari and the raw bar sampler.
