Cape May has some Old faces in New Places on the Washington Street Mall

July 26th, 2010 by johnmatusiak

The hot new T-shirt in Cape May is titled, “Capemaniac”. For many visitors their trip to Cape May is a ritual, an old habit that is too good to break.

Many have a predetermined plan nurtured and edited over years to provide the perfect getaway.  This may include a walk on the Washington Street Mall or a bike ride to the Cape May Point lighthouse.

For some it is all about “that” store or restaurant. This year has brought some changes. Tisha’s restaurant has been a mainstay of Beach Ave for years. Tisha’s restaurant provided great food with a picture perfect view of the ocean. The convention hall projected forced a move and now the restaurant has moved from the beach to the Washington Street Mall.

Tisha’s restaurant reopened on Friday July 23,2010. Two of our guests here at the Bacchus Inn Bed & Breakfast went to dinner last evening. They loved the ambience and were pleasantly reassured from their dining experience that Tisha’s is still a fine Cape May restaurant. The breakfast ritual at the Bacchus Inn is a review of  the previous night’s dinner. Jim and Joanne,longtime repeat guest, wanted everyone to know …that the new Tisha’s still has the great food while set in an elegant dining room”. So if you loved Tisha’s before on Beach Ave then try it again at its new location on the Washigton Street mall. If you have never been to Tisha’s restaurant then you should make a point to try one of the more refined spots of Cape May.

Tisha’s restaurant has a new neighbor, Bath Time. Bath Time was formerly located across from Swain’s hardware. Now it is conveniently located on the Washington Street Mall. Bath Time  specializes in custom scented bath salts but it also has other supplies for the bathroom.

Both Tisha’s and Bath Time have been long time businesses in Cape May.  They are a custom part of many visitors Cape May experience. Now they are very convenient neighbors to visit on the Washington Street Mall.

Cape May restaurant has a new reservation format

July 24th, 2010 by johnmatusiak

Louisa’s Restaurant is a guest favorite at the Bacchus Inn Bed & Breakfast. It is a charming little secret tucked away on Jackson St. Louisa’s does food simply well. It is not a fussy place.

It is a close restaurant with ,french cafe style, close sitting. If you can deal with that you are in for a treat. The menu is on a chalk board. It consist on several fishes, crab cakes, and a poultry dish. The salads are fabulous. There are several salad choices each with there own unique identity. The desserts are homemade with love and care. Indulge in dessert it is soooooo worth it.

Louisa’s is usually a challenging reservation. They have made the process a little easier. Now you can make reservations one week in advance. If you want to try Louisa’s I strongly recommend booking the week before. Then just relax and enjoy a simple meal cooked with care.

Cape May Theater

June 24th, 2010 by johnmatusiak

Cape May has a lot to offer any vacationer. One attraction that stands out consistently is the Cape May Stage. The stage is located in the center of Cape May just minutes from the bed & breakfast, hotels, and vacations homes. You wouldn’t know that during the show. You may think you are in the Big Apple. The actors and plays are first rate performances. The Cape May Stage has always been good but under the guidance of Roy Steinberg it has become something more.

I Hate Hamlet, directed by Roy Steinberg, is currently on stage June 16th to July 17. Patrons rave about the comic poke at Shakespeare.

Patrons appreciate the updated seating. The stage received a grant a couple of years ago and constructed a theater seating arrangement with comfortable chairs and good sight lines throughout.

Next time you visit Cape May try the Cape May Stage. It is an evening out you won’t regret.
