About Us

Located in the quaint town of Sayville and in business for over sixteen years. Chef Owner Steve Sands and Jules Buitron operate this popular, casual European style bistro. Our talented staff offers a diverse American Eclectic menu featuring pasta, veal, chicken, lamb, seafood, the freshest fish available and innovative daily specials. A very popular lunch spot, we offer innovative salads, sandwiches, burgers and we are famous for our creative soups.

Zagat guide boasts "every town should have a restaurant like this."

The dining room displays framed art prints and has a soft glow from floral painted glass light fixtures. Dramatic curtains separate the bar area from the dining room.

A graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, Chef Owner Steve Sands has been pleasing customers for over 30 years. Partner Jules Buitron has been in the restaurant business for over 17 years, learning the business from the ground up at Café Joelle.

At Café Joelle we strive to create a casual, friendly atmosphere with a staff knowledgeable in both food, wine and customer satisfaction.

Cafe Joelle is a hit with the locals, but you don't have to be local to enjoy a great meal in comfortable surroundings at a reasonable price. You can also visit our other restaurant, Pasta Pasta at 234 East Main Street in Port Jefferson, (631) 331-5335.
