About Cape May Food Tours

I’ve always loved showing friends around my city of Cape May, eating delicious freshly prepared foods at local restaurants, relating interesting stories of Cape May history, and pointing out the elements of various styles of our charming Victorian buildings.

In 2011 on a visit to my daughter’s university in Athens, Georgia, I pick up a brochure about a Food Tour and read, “Great Food, Fun History, Beautiful Architecture”.


This is what I had been doing with my friends and I thought, maybe there were others who would like to experience Cape May’s Great Food, Fun History, and Beautiful Architecture.

After much research, a crash course on Food Tourism in Chicago, lots of tastings and planning, Cape May Food Tours launched it’s signature Historic Downtown Food Tour in August 2012 and has been going strong ever since.

I’m a big believer in following your passions and talents and giving back to others. Cape May Food Tours has given me that platform. In 2019 we partnered with the Lymphoma Research Foundation. A portion of each ticket sale is donated to Lymphoma Research Foundation annually.   We are very excited to support this wonderful organization!
