How Godmothers Came to Be...


Built in 1924, our building originally served Cape May as a private doctors office and a pharmacy. As the years passed, it became a trim shop, a luncheonette, Jullie’s Ice Cream Parlor and several restaurants including Tony’s Parkside Restaurant and The Old Ship Inn.  In 1983, Godmother’s was founded and became Cape May’s first Italian Restaurant. Godmothers has become a favorite of many Cape May residents as well as those on vacation.


Godmothers is known for providing a warm, inviting atmosphere and excellent service from a staff that is personable and professional. The simple philosophy of chef Hubert and our kitchen is to utilize the freshest local Jersey produce, the abundant seafood of our shores, combined with the choice cuts of beef, veal chicken and of course, pasta. Godmothers menu offers a wide selection of traditional and untraditional Italian fair, home baked desserts, pasta and much more.


While dining at Godmothers you’ll be greeted with warm smiles and friendly faces and 100% smoke-free environment. And as with many of Cape May’s fine restaurants, Godmothers welcomes you to bring your own selection of wine and beer. We offer a selection of the local wines frm the Cape May vineyards.
