Jig’s Corner Stop Cafe is excited to serve Porcupine Plain & Area

we are a multi-generational family-owned business who, during COVID lockdown in Spring 2020, had a crazy notion to try something new! Thus began the inquiry into “what’s going on with the old Double J building”!  

We called and asked questions, but in the end just had to be patient until that FOR SALE sign was placed on the building. Thankfully, all our stars aligned and we were successful in securing the building for our new adventure! 

Many hours have been put in from three generations of our family to get the café on the highway up and running, and we are excited to share it with you!  We are kicking our journey off with a limited menu to start, which will include a small variety of burgers, subs, sides, appetizers and ice cream.  We will slowly expand our menu and ice cream bar as time passes, so be on the lookout for what is new at Jig’s Café!

While we may not be able to offer dine-in service at this time, we look forward to the day when we can host you in our establishment.  At this time, we are able to serve you at our drive-through or at counter for take-out!

Visit their Facebook page to check out their Menu, and phone 306-278-3090 to place your order for pick-up! 

BEHIND THE NAME:  Little Jig is a name our son/grandson/nephew, Reed, acquired from his great Auntie Gail when he and his mamma were living with her in Saskatoon.  It was a name that stuck!  It is something we all still call him when we are reliving our memories we had with him.
