Founded by the visionary Julie Keane, Ivy Cafe has swiftly transformed from a mere concept to a thriving reality in the span of just a year and a half. Keane’s dedication to her vision has made Ivy Cafe a cornerstone of the Clayton food scene, earning it a devoted following and rave reviews. In addition to its flagship location, Ivy Cafe has expanded its footprint with a satellite location conveniently situated across the street in the newly built Commerce Bank Tower. This strategic move has further solidified Ivy Cafe’s presence in the area and allowed more diners to indulge in its culinary delights.

What sets Ivy Cafe apart is not just its mouthwatering menu, but also its commitment to providing a tranquil and welcoming environment and its unwavering commitment to local sourcing. The botanical accents adorning the dining space create an oasis of serenity amidst the bustling streets of Clayton, inviting patrons to relax and savor their culinary experience. Every ingredient, from farm-fresh produce to the aromatic Queens Coffee that graces every cup, is meticulously selected from nearby vendors. This dedication to supporting local suppliers not only ensures freshness and quality but also fosters a sense of community stewardship.

Julie Keane attributes part of Ivy Cafe’s success to her partnership with Justine PETERSEN. Keane recalls that she initially chose JP due to favorable interest rates and the exceptional responsiveness of their team in meeting her business needs promptly. As a satisfied JP client, she has not only recommended their services to others but also intends to continue doing so in the future. As Ivy Cafe continues to flourish and delight palates in Clayton, its story serves as a testament to the power of passion, vision, and community support in the culinary world. With Julie Keane at the helm and a dedicated team behind her, Ivy Cafe is poised to remain a cherished destination for food enthusiasts for years to come.
