Pasquale’s Cafe, located on the corner of Delaware Avenue and Loraine Avenue is one of the most popular of Put-in-Bay restaurants. A whimsical neon sign with a smiley face in the O in OPEN greets you from the window. Come early to break your nightly fast. Try the Hot Mess, a hearty plate of scrambled eggs, hash browns, bacon, sausage gravy, and cheddar Monterrey jack cheese. You will want to wash this down with a multitude of bloody mary’s and sparkling mimosas or some fine Pepsi products. Stick around through lunch and get a taste of Pasquale’s famous PPD Burger, Gloria’s summer salad, the Pompeii Chicken, Bosco sticks, and a Baked Lobster Mac and Cheese you will want to remember forever. These spectacular meals are served with unparalleled cheer by the kind-hearted and appreciative waitstaff.

Bailey L: “We came in with a large group of 9 people and we were fine sitting at different tables but the hostess was able to get us a table for all of us to sit together. It was very busy when we got there and the service was great! Our food was delicious and very affordable when other places on the island were pricey. We wanted to go back the next day for breakfast! Definitely worth a visit while you’re on the island.”

Haddy G: “I LOVE this place, it’s service is great. When we ordered our drinks it looks only a few minutes for them to bring the drinks. They have a wide selection of drinks and my favorite part about this place is they let you choose your own bread (wheat, white, rye). Its style is a mix of modern and old fashion. It is beautiful, and the many plants gives a sense of comfort. The food is also very cheap and fits our price range. Very clean.”

Aaron L: “We visited for lunch while we were on the island, and I had one of the burgers. The burger was absolutely delicious, but the fries could use a little more seasoning. The meals were fairly priced for being on the island, and our waitress was very friendly. We would definitely come back on a return visit.”
