Great food with attitude! That’s the motto at the Jersey Girl Cafe. The casual cafe, located at 731 Route 33 in Hamilton, serves a fresh and innovative menu seven days a week. The cafe specializes in local ingredients, which Chef Kathy Rana uses to bring diners amazing omelets and breakfasts, fantastic paninis, quesadillas, and sandwiches, the freshest salads and soups, and homemade cookies and treats.
Not only does Chef Kathy serve her wonderful meals at the Jersey Girl Cafe, she also offers special event catering and daily corporate catering. Best of all, the menu is not the same every day. “We try to mix it up a bit each day, so that if you are having a week of meetings you don’t get tired of seeing the same thing day after day,” says Chef Kathy. Catered lunch can include hot and cold items, the paninis, which the restaurant is so well-known for, and fresh salads, vegetarian and gluten-free items, and of course, dessert. All of the meals are made fresh at the cafe. “We don’t serve frozen food and we don’t take shortcuts. We use the freshest ingredients, and always shop locally for in-season ingredients,” she adds.
Jersey Girl Cafe also caters for special events — “We will make meals for two to 200 diners,” says Chef Kathy. Holiday dinners, parties, showers, or other occasions will be more festive with food from the Jersey Girl Cafe. Events can be held at the cafe after 6 p.m. or anytime at your own location.
The cafe also has a wide variety of special events, from Sunday Acoustic Jams to Tarot Card readings. Just check their calendar online at www.jerseygirlcafenj.com for the latest events.
