7 Seas Cafe Purchased By Mudhen’s Parent Company

7 Seas Cafe Purchased By Mudhen’s Parent Company

There was a big property that was sold just recently. According to the New Jersey State Property Transfers, 4601 New Jersey Ave, in Wildwood, sold.

The company that purchased the 7 Seas Cafe was Sciarra Investments LLC. This is the parent company of Poppi’s, Dogtooth, and Mudhen.

For those who were not familiar with the 7 Seas Cafe, it was started in 1933 by Ann and Frank Lebato.

7 Seas Cafe was known for its killer pies, packaged goods, and jumbo sandwiches. (Who else used to get their liverwursts and onion sandwiches?)

By the early 2010s, the business closed for good, ending its phase, “Service the Hungry And Thirty Since 1933.”

After sitting for a few years the building was starting to show its age. In 2017 the building got a brand new facelift. This started speculation that something new was going to take its place.

Unfortunately, at that time there were no plans on opening an establishment inside. The owners wanted to give the facade an updated look so that they could attract investors.

Interestingly enough, the entire inside hasn’t really been touched since its closing.

As you can see from the photo below, the bars are covered in dust and the disco ball is still handing ready for folks to dance.

So what does Sciarra Investments LLC plan to do with the new property? At the moment nothing.

According to an email from Sciarra Investments LLC, they confirmed the purchase of the building but have no plans on what it will be utilized for.

Sciarra Investments LLC did apply for a permit through the city of wildwood for the removal of equipment, trash, and debris.

For now, the building will be idle but we will be sure to keep a close eye on it.

Tune back later for more details.
