SJ Pancake House Can’t Open 2 Locations Until Indoor Dining OK’d
Breakfast in New Jersey is a very important part of our culture -- pork roll, diner chocolate milk and food and of course, BRUNCH!
So I consider this next announcement sad news.
Uncle Bill's Pancake House -- which has locations in Cape May, Ocean City 21st, Ocean City 40th, Wildwood, North Cape May, Avalon and Stone Harbor -- has announced that two of their locations will not be opening until indoor dining is given the green light by Governor Phil Murphy.
The Avalon and Stone Harbor locations unfortunately don't have the space to cater to outdoor dining. Plus, manager of the Cape May location, T.J. O'Hara said that, "take-out isn't good for the quality of the overall product."
Kind of makes sense. Pancakes get soggy. Doesn't sound like my cup of tea.
Even though the other five locations are open for takeout and outdoor dining, this set up is only bringing in a fraction of their usual business...especially in tourist towns like Wildwood that rely on July and August to make a majority of their money for the year.
“I thought by now we would be allowed to do 50% capacity inside,” O'Hara said. “What people need to start realizing is that we can do this safely.”
Whenever you can, support local businesses like Uncle Bill's Pancake House because even though the state has started to reopen, businesses are H U R T I N G.
Hold on guys. I am hoping that we will be facing this problem for another few weeks.
