about us

Welcome to Jeffersonville’s first corner-casual gourmet.

Café on Meigs is your neighborhood café in the heart of downtown Jeffersonville. Just off Court Avenue, we are located at 425 Meigs Avenue.

It was a need to offer neighbors, family, friends (and soon-to-be friends) a quality dining experience in a homey atmosphere. Come on in, pull up chair and let’s eat!

    Getting Started

    This week was chock-full of activity. Began working with a wonderful web designer, Sean Harrington and he blew me away with his design! Also, we opened the front rooms up to make the flow seamless. Next week, internet, phones and appliances will be delivered. Love it when a plan starts to come together!
