All About Café Ubé
Discover our story and find our about our history, our food, and our name.
We’ve been serving great food to tourists and islanders since the 1960s.
Born at the former Jersey Pottery in Gorey, our cafés started life as a coffee bar offering refreshments to factory visitors. We quickly became known for our fresh and tasty food, and our Jersey Pottery Cafés expanded into St Helier offering snacks, sandwiches, drinks and our tasty homemade soups to hungry office workers and tourists in the town centre.
Times change, and Jersey Pottery eventually switched focus from making plates, to filling plates with food. The ceramics factory and the original Jersey Pottery Café aren’t around any more, but Jersey Pottery’s sister company – JPRestaurants – now has more than ten outlets around the island. This includes our cafés, as well as Banjo, Oyster Box and Jersey Crab Shack restaurants.
As the world went digital, we realised we needed a new name. Customers searching for our soup menu online would stumble across the latest pottery range – and so, it was decided that Jersey Pottery Cafés had to change.
We wanted a name that reflects our local heritage, and we chose the name Café Ubé as a tribute to Mont Ubé dolmen in St Clement. Pronounced “ooh-bay”, we think it has a nice ring to it.
