  • We have been told that the gentlemen gamblers did not permit ladies inside The Clubhouse, but they invited them to enjoy tea on the veranda in the afternoon. We have changed the rules a little and serve everybody tea inside and outside depending on the season. From 4:00 to 5:00 p.m. daily hot or iced tea, home made sweets, fresh fruit and tea sandwiches or specialty cheese spreads will refresh you after a fun day in old Cape May.
