Every year at Jack & Diane’s we celebrate Mother’s Day with awesome food and awesome people. A few years ago, we started taking an unofficial tally of our guests to find out what Moms love best about their Mother’s Day experience with us. Overwhelmingly, our moms told us they prioritized time with their family as the #1 best thing about Mother’s Day and spending it here, in our cozy little Fernandina Beach diner, as being the perfect fit.
We cater to family time and love having the kids, dogs and even crazy Uncle Ed join us. One thing we have noticed about our guests who spend Mother’s Day with us it that we get more requests for recipes on Mother’s Day than any other day of the year. What we found even more interesting is that the one item that has the most recipe requests is our homemade jam. That recipe is a closely guarded family secret and grandma is not ready to give it up just yet, but to keep everyone happy and full we made sure to make extra jam this year so we don’t run out.
We will keep working on Grannie to jot this one down for you, but until then, we’ll be sure to serve it up with her island sweet butter and fresh made biscuits. We invite you to join us this Mother’s Day so you, too, can taste what all the fuss is about.
Happy Mother’s Day!
