Jim's Cafe at Innisport

Jim's Cafe was founded in 1946 by Jim Smith. At that time, Jim was a sergeant in the United States Army, who had just finished a tour of duty in Europe. Ready to begin civilian life, he settled down in the sleepy town of Innisport with his wife, Charlotte, and their son, James Jr.

Taking a second mortgage out on his home, he purchased a run-down book shop in downtown Innisport and set about realizing his dream of owning a successful restaurant. The first few years were lean, but as the town of Innisport grew and prospered, Jim's Cafe became a favorite place for lunch breaks and Saturday night dinners.

For over 60 years, Jim's Cafe has been renowned for excellent service, a dazzling variety of dishes and appetizers, and scenic location. Use the links below to read more:

Reputation for Quality Service

Jim's Cafe was an immediate success. The little cafe quickly garnered a reputation for friendly service and delicious food. Jim worked in the kitchen, while his wife and sister-in-law took care of the customers. Early on, the two sisters created a code which they decided to use to ensure that their reputation stayed strong. That code, which is still honored by the staff of Jim's Cafe today, reads as follows:


Dishes and Appetizers

Over the years, the menu at Jim's Cafe has grown and grown. As customers requested new dishes, Jim would add them to the menu.
