From the South Orange Village Center Alliance:
It’s open! Jackie & Son is a new American-Mediterranean Eatery and Bakery with full espresso, coffee, and juice bar located at 136 South Orange Avenue (corner of Prospect St.) that just opened this morning. It’s owned by South Orange resident Jackie Podhurst, and as you can see by the menu, it’s going to be amazing!! Thanks to Jackie and her family for bringing this great new eating establishment to South Orange Village Center. Hours of operation are 7 a.m. – 4 p.m., 7 days a week.
Kitchen a la Mode owner Ben Salmon is one of the first to give Jackie & Son the thumbs-up on Facebook: “The food was amazing, which is particularly impressive considering this is their first day of their soft opening. I’m a bit of a coffee snob; the coffee was the best I’ve had in a while. You can tell the beans were roasted in the last few days.”
The opening of Jackie & Son follows on the debut of BayLeaf Indian Cuisine at 115 South Orange Avenue last week. BayLeaf is getting rave reviews online.
