Close Enough Café’s mission statement is simple: Providing our lovely locals with benevolent baked goods and luscious lunch options. If you have a hunger, we’re here to sate it!

The new eatery is located at 250 Spring Street in downtown Jeffersonville, and is owned by Chris Palmer and Daniel Mahony, who previously launched The Alcove bar and Bad Cat Boutique. Brooke McAfee has coverage at the News and Tribune.

The business offers both hot and cold sandwiches and coffee, and for brunch, customers can enjoy alcoholic beverages such as Bloody Mary cocktails and mimosas…Palmer’s wife, Rachel Klein-Palmer, manages Close Enough Cafe with Alli Nolan. They have built the business from “the ground-up,” Klein-Palmer said.

“We knew that downtown Jeff needed like a grab-and-go kind of sandwich place,” she said. “So people come in, they get a quick bite and they can go back to their office jobs or whatever. That’s kind of the business model we were trying to run with.”

Close Enough Cafe’s hours are 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Monday, Thursday and Friday, and 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
