We are so excited about the opening of Nan’s New Orleans Café and Poboy later this summer. As we work do complete the restaurant to absolute perfection, we wanted to thank everyone who is already supporting this new adventure. With over 25 years experience in the food service arena, we are bringing our knowledge and passion to Mandeville.
Jack’s Café and Catering was our first venture into our own food service and catering company. We have been so fortunate to be able to make so many special parties, weddings, and events even better with our delicious food. The loyal customer base that we have been blessed with at Jack’s is what has given us the expansion with our sister restaurant, Nan’s.
Our vision for Nan’s New Orleans Café and Poboy was to be able to turn back the clock and build upon the foundation of good ole New Orleans lifestyle cooking. If you are from the area then you understand that cooking is not just cooking. It is an event. Drawing on that same feel good memory of Sundays are for all day family lunches that lasted into dinner, we want to create that same feeling. Southern food represents the heart and soul of pulling families together and that is our goal with Nan’s.
While our full menu will be on our website closer to opening day, we can tell you that we will be delivering our own embellishments on favorite Creole dishes that everyone enjoys. We will be serving a variety of choices so that everyone will be sure to find something to love. We pride ourselves on making all our meals from scratch. We will even hand craft our salad dressings and we know they will be a hit. Local produce and sea food will be a constant on our menu. We believe in supporting local growers and fisherman.
We want to make a lunch or dinner at Nan’s New Orleans Café and Poboy a part of your family tradition for casual meals together, or for special occasions. We make cooking a lifestyle, and want you to become part of our life with your family. Each item on our menu will be something that means something special to us that we want to share with our customers.
Again, many thanks for all the support and enthusiasm. We are blessed as members of the North Shore community here in Mandeville to share our passion for family dining with each of you. Lovingly referred to as “makin’ groceries” we cannot wait to make groceries for your family.
