Jake’s Diner Pizzeria & Deli
Looking for delicious food with warm, friendly service? Jake’s has a been staple of the Yarmouth experience for over 25 years, and one of the best places to grab a quick bite.
Lisa and Joey Habib are the co-owners of this family-based restaurant. Customers have a wide menu of foods to choose from, including pizzas, salads, pitas, fish, chicken, and their extremely popular donairs. Jake’s also offers an ever-expanding Mediterranean menu, which includes dishes such as hummus, shish taouk, and falafel.
What’s your signature product?
Right now it would have to be donairs. It’s just what we seem to be known for. I think they’re so popular because of our secret recipe, of course, the love and the care that we put into each one, and the fact that they’re personalized for your liking.
How did you get started?
My father-in-law had a vision. We had restaurants in Halifax and he was looking to expand. He drove across the province and drove across Canada. And came to Yarmouth and fell in love. He pulled up to our previous location and went and spoke to the Trasks who owned the property, and the rest is history. We’ve been here ever since.
What inspires you to do what you do?
We really have a passion for feeding people. We just love to create, and we love to see happy customers. It’s really all about the customers, and the desire to make sure that they’re taken care of and that they leave here happy and full.
