Cape May Café is a table-service restaurant in Disney's Beach Club Resort. They host a very popular clambake buffet dinner in the evenings but in the am hours Goofy, Minnie and Donald host breakfast in their snazzy beach attire. We like to finish each of our trips with a character meal whenever possible Cape May Café was nice and close, so it was the obvious choice. We had a bad experience here a long time ago at dinner, so had some reservations, but in the end convenience with a 4 month old was the top priority and we decided to give it a second chance. We are not fine diners normally, so we think it's pretty hard to get breakfast wrong!
Checking InCheck in is at the podium outside the restaurant, to the left of the main entrance if you're coming in from the pool side of the resort. Our reservation was for 9am and we probably had the longest wait of any dining reservation here.
The pagers work throughout the gift shop and lobby, so we spent some time exploring the resort and checking out what was on offer until we were seated.
Theming and DécorCape May Café carries on the theming of the Beach Club Resort as a whole, which is supposed to be a New England-style beach house. Lots of white trim, pastel colours and beach umbrella carpet (ok so that last one probably isn't found in traditional New England beach houses).
The restaurant has two seating areas, the main dining room and then a smaller room to the right as you enter. We were seated in the main dining room and were very grateful to have been. I would probably request this specifically if we return here, as it was nice to be a part of the action and close to the buffet.
