Cafe La De Da Will Open Gourmet Concession A Seastreak Ferry


100 Free Coffees Will Be Provided On Opening Day Thursday, December 8 During The Morning Rush

Seastreak Ferry riders who embark from Highlands, NJ will be thrilled to know that a new café serving gourmet coffee and an array of breakfast foods, yogurt parfaits, sandwiches and baked goods including vegan, dairy-free, keto and gluten-free choices, will be opening on Thursday, December 8.

Cafe La De Da, which also operates a 100% designated gluten-free and Celiac-safe gourmet market & bakery at 71 Waterwitch Avenue, Highlands, is slated to open in the next two weeks. The new concession is located at the ferry terminal at 326 Shore Drive, Highlands, NJ 07732.
To celebrate opening day, Cafe La De Da will provide 100 free coffees during the morning rush. Afficionado is the exclusive coffee purveyor for Cafe La De Da. In addition, Cafe La De Da will be opening another concession at the Seastreak Ferry terminal in Belford, NJ. Announcements will be forthcoming on social media.

Owned by longtime entrepreneur Grace Sepe, known as the ‘gluten-free guru,’ Cafe La De Da at Seastreak Ferry will be more than just a simple morning concession. Sepe is creating a QR code-driven system that will enable pre-ordering of not only coffee and breakfast in the morning, but also prepared meals in the evening. To support other local businesses, Sepe will feature the cuisine of a different restaurant every week at the café. Riders will be able to exit the ferry and enjoy prepared meals from their favorite eateries without having to make extra stops on the way home.

The enhanced client service experience and support of local enterprises will not stop there. Sepe is also curating a unique collection of merchandise from local businesses which will change with the season, bringing even more convenience and ease for riders.
“I am grateful to Seastreak for this amazing opportunity and to be aligned with a company that cares about providing more amenities to clients. I aim to provide ‘the ultimate food service’ as many ferry patrons have expressed an interest in coffee and food concessions over the years. Now this will be a reality,” stated Sepe.

The Story Of Cafe La De Da

Sepe started Cafe La De Da in early 2016 in Middletown, NJ. After the closure of her original location due to the pandemic and increasing demands for gluten-free fare outpacing her second location in North Middletown, Sepe moved her base of operations to Highlands. Her new gourmet market and bakery at 71 Waterwitch Avenue in Highlands offers 100% gluten-free products including fresh baked goods, snacks, packaged treats, pasta, elegant charcuterie boards, an array of decadent desserts, and prepared meals like gourmet pizzas and sandwiches.
Many locals became fans of Café La De Da over the summer as the mobile catering truck was stationed at ‘The Sandbox’ at Seastreak. The food truck is available to the public for private parties and events.
