A Little Bit About Us

In the summer of 1994 John and Monica Tartufo decided it was time to get back into the restaurant business. By mid August they found the perfect little Café along Rt. 54, 2 miles from the beach and 10 miles from their home in the country; hence the name Countryside Café. The doors were opened on September 1, 1994 and by the next year business was booming!

John and Monica’s daughters, Bethany and Ashley, would spend endless weekends and summers at the restaurant trying to earn a little bit of money and learning to do everything from waitress to cook. Soon enough our little Café became known not only for the great food, but also for the friendly environment provided by the family and staff. Customers began to know the girls as if they were their own and we began to know our customers as family. Monica and John Tartufo value community service.
