Judkins St. Cafe is celebrating two years at 26th and Judkins today.

Situated deep in the neighborhood and not visible from any of the CD’s major commercial streets, the Cafe (a CDNews sponsor) still manages to pack the house.

As we reported in 2011, Judkins St. Cafe moved into the space after Charlie’s Flame Broiled Burgers closed. The Cafe keeps expanding its music and guest chef events.

Owner Michael McGloin thanked customers and neighbors today in a newsletter:

Hello Everyone,

It is quite hard to believe that today marks the 2nd anniversary of the cafe.

What an adventure it has been! I knew when I started that I had no idea what I was getting myself into and I’m not sure that even now I know what I have gotten myself into. I do know that I still look forward to being at the cafe each day. I am proud of what we have created, proud of our food, proud of our staff, and proud of our neighborhood.

And still it feels like this adventure is just beginning. In the months ahead we are planning many more special dinners and events, more live music and more new items on the menu.

For those of you looking for some good music and food this weekend, come by for a night of live jazz saxophone with Frank ”Stainless” Steele this Saturday 2/16 from 6:30pm until close  or join us for a fine weekend brunch served Saturday and Sunday from 9am until 3pm.

Finally, in celebration of our anniversary we will offer special happy hour prices on beer, wine and mimosas all weekend.

Thank you once again for all your support!

- Michael

  1. I stopped in for lunch for the first time about a month ago and I absolutely LOVED it. Fantastic!! Hearty, comfortable delicious. My only minor complaint is its wish they’d get plates and napkins cause I hate wasting paper. But it won’t stop me from coming back. See you this week!!!

  2. Seriously I don’t know how. Everyone I have been there service was bad and food wasn’t much better. Portion size is also a joke.

    • I go there alot. Lunch, dinner, lemonade on a walk, sometimes for lunch to go and some pie. Service is always good and the food is just what I need when I am in the home cooked meal mood. Michael is a bit strange and I am sure he knows this and has found a way to appreciate it. I have. And who are we all to judge that anyway.

      Stop in and have one of the best burgers in town. Ask to have it however Micheal suggests. This varies, but, expect bacon and perhaps some blue cheese. Burger is great, Meatloaf is good if you want meatloaf (I do), Pie is outstanding, except the pumpkin, but, I don’t often like pumpkin. Manny’s on tap. Uhh. I don’t see where you could go wrong. Perhaps clear the office table in the corner when it gets busy.

      Let’s see some sidwalk tables in a couple of months. See you Friday Michael, I’m out of town for the week.
