Jim Evy’s Café is a made-to-order restaurant with extended lunchtime hours, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday. The café has house-made sandwiches, pizza, side salads and seasonal specialities like fresh battered fish sandwichs, italian beef and classic reubens. Jim and Evy’s Café offers a warm environment full of natural light.
The Café was made possible as a result of a kind and generous donation from Mr. Jim Johnson, a former resident of Proctor Place. Jim and his wife Evelyn called Proctor Place home in 1999. Evelyn passed away in 2001 and Jim followed years later in 2012. In dedication of the café Jim and Evy’s daughters, Liz and Barb best described the families overall desire for the Café:
“Our parents, Jim and Evy Johnson, as harmonious traveling companions, loved driving down back roads decked by corn fields, exploring a new place to eat, or returning to a favorite, especially Lincoln. They looked for good food, a spirited atmosphere, lively service, and tables supplied with the most necessary ingredient–people.
The best eateries echoed the substance and simplicity of their intimate kitchen–sunshine, lengthy discussions, laughter, and a memory of our dad waiting with the anticipation of a schoolboy for the potpourri plate, an abracadabra, placed before him. Our mom, a cuisine alchemist, could whip up a tasty anything almost instantly from scratch–magical little sandwiches and perfect tiny pickles legendary.
Jim and Evy, formerly contented residents of Proctor Place, would be pleased to welcome you as travelers in life to this café. May you enjoy companionship, fun, and nurturing food for your wellness and wholeness.
May Blessings ring!
Daughters Liz and Barb”
We hope you will join us in Jim Evy’s Café to enjoy our most important ingredient — people.
