The café is named after Dr. Edgar J.

Edgar and Joe’s Café also offers a wide range of culinary experiences including catered onsite events in our facilities, offsite corporate breakfasts and luncheons, casual gatherings or more formal cocktail receptions. Our catering menu is planned to suit a variety of events, or we can work with you to create a custom, chef-designed menu to fit your specific vision.
