We’re working on a Re-Imagining!
Sorry for any inconvenience! While Jack’s Cafe is best been known for chocolate malts and chicken salad, it also has a history of change and innovation. In the past 107 years we’ve enjoyed several different iterations of our beloved cafe and in 2018 we are excited to explore yet another. We will not be serving in the cafe until later on this year while we take care to re-imagine the best version yet! Stay tuned for updates as they will be coming soon.
Our gift shop will also be enjoying a remodel over the next two months. We will be closing our doors on Sunday, January 28 in order to ensure a timely change over. However, we will be opening our doors during our down time and would love to see you at all of our below pop ups!

Did you know? In 1928 Jack and Tony (our resident ice cream maker) served a landmark 36,582 malts. 89 years later and we're still making them the same way.
Another Fun Fact! In 1937 the ice cream flavor Fudge Ripple was discovered right here at Jack Andrea's! Our ice cream maker Antonio Giantonio accidentally used a can of fudge when attempting to make a batch of famous Andrea's homemade chocolate ice cream. Whereas chocolate syrup would have mixed in nicely creating a creamy rich chocolate ice cream, the can of fudge rippled throughout our vanilla base and a classic flavor was born! Jack sold the patent for the fudge rippling process to Johnson Ice Cream for $100.
