Thank You For Choosing
Ganim’s Juno Beach Café
Hello and Welcome! My name is Don. My wife, Mary Ann and I know you have so many restaurants to choose from so we are honored you chose to stop at Juno Beach Café! We take pride in offering a diversified and creative menu. Our food is never pre-mixed, pre-measured or pre-done. This takes a bit longer, so please have patience and be assured our team is working as quickly as possible to serve you a fresh, hot meal. Please sit back and relax while your meal is prepared and enjoy the beautiful South Florida weather while we share with you how Juno Beach Café came to be…
Uncle Eddie was my uncle who owned eight pancake houses in and around Great Falls, Montana in the 1950’s and 1960’s. Many summers I would visit Uncle Eddie and began learning the restaurant business from him. Uncle Eddie would let me mix the batter, but he would always prepare the secret ingredients he called the “dynamite.” It wasn’t until 1989 when Mary Ann and I opened a restaurant in Key Largo that we finally got the recipe for the “dynamite!” When we moved from Key Largo in 1998 to open Ganim’s Juno Beach Café we brought the secret recipe with us. JBC continues to honor Uncle Eddie today by proudly serving his 65-year+-pancake recipe, affectionately known as “UEPs!”
If you’re new to JBC, we want to introduce our family to you! The oldest in the family is Christine who is married to Juan and has two daughters, Angelica and Diana. They live in Key Largo where they own and operate Juan Velizaroff Lawn Service. Angelica, a junior and Diana, a sophomore, are enjoying the teenage life as they make their way through high school and soon into college!
Stephanie, (the youngest!) her husband, “Tiger” and Stephanie’s three boys live in Tavernier, FL. Stephanie is a schoolteacher and the three boys, too, are managing teenage life. Jacob is a senior and getting accepted to multiple colleges! Can’t wait to find out which one he chooses! Zack is a soccer superstar and navigating high school with finesse. Luke is pushing through 8th grade and leaving his mark! He is an AMAZING baseball player and possesses a great talent in the sport! School, sports, jobs and “college shopping” keep their family extremely busy!
Terri (middle child!) manages the day-to day-operations of JBC. She and her husband, Keith, have two children, Jack and Olivia. Jack is 8 ½ years old and very into school, football and baseball. Olivia just turned 7 on New Year’s Day and loves 1st grade! She is a whiz on her bike, dotes on her brother and takes good care of her baby dolls. To continue the family tradition, both kids “work” at the restaurant on Saturday mornings!
We have been so blessed and God continues those blessings on us everyday. We are grateful for all our guests who have been with us for many years and those guests whom we meet daily. We ask God to watch over you and your families during your travels and look forward to the next time we meet.
We hope you enjoy the experience!!
Don and Mary Ann
