Our Story.

Founded in 2017 in the City of Mount Vernon, L&J Café is sophisticated bar, restaurant and lounge. The owners Lin & Joe created the concept behind their menu by simply combining both of their cultures. Lin being Latin from Dominican descendant and Joe’s family that migrated from Italy in the 1950’s, shared a passion for their traditions and decided combined them and share it with the public by opening a modern style café. The combination of Latin herbs, spices, and homemade Italian pasta is just a small piece of the foundation for what we call Latin-Italian fusion. If you love Latin food and appreciate homemade Italian dishes or just interested in trying a combination then give us a try. Here at L&J Café we try our best to provide great music, amazing conversation, and mouth-watering delights. Come and have the L&J experience!!!
