Ellie’s Table is a celebration of Eleanor Mastroianni, who’s cooking and baking skills helped turn Jay’s Catering into a true catering dynasty. As a husband and wife team, Jay + Eleanor Mastroianni began a small catering business out of their home in 1967. Today, the company is considered one of Orange County’s best caterers.
Ellie’s Table completes a circle of food industry experience, beginning with Eleanor’s first job at Conway’s Corner—a small diner in Rochester, P.A.—and culminating in this café. Even though she was a trained nurse, Eleanor took her first steps toward a career in food service at Conway’s, which is also where she met her future husband, Jay. After marrying in 1953, Jay’s mother taught Eleanor how to prepare classic Italian Mastroianni family recipes.
Decades later, Ellie’s Table has opened in homage to this matriarch’s incredible culinary talents. Our café offers up some of her most famous dishes, like Ellie’s Potato Salad + Ellie’s Famous Cinnamon Rolls. While our cuisine is lovingly rooted in family tradition, our chefs also relish in producing innovative takes on Eleanor’s classics. Their recipes are both imaginative + true to the essence of Ellie’s cooking; an essence that is perfectly encompassed in our slogan: “Happiness is Homemade”.
