History of Jane's Gourmet Deli

Jane’s Gourmet Deli opened its doors in 1993. Then, it was a small gourmet sandwich shop hoping to bring a little extra something to the Lafayette, Indiana area. Soon, our love for experimentation and delicious foods earned us local success and helped us grow our restaurant and catering services while opening up our gourmet store. In the last 22 years, Jane’s has continued to be passionate about bringing good taste and great gourmet goods to the greater Lafayette community.


About The Owner

Jane opened Jane’s Gourmet Deli and Catering in 1993 in Lafayette, Indiana. She was far from her Minnesota home and her alma mater in Boston, but her passion for delicious, locally-sourced food found a home right here in the Lafayette community. Jane had always loved cooking with friends, and Lafayette allowed her to put that love to good use, something she simply could not do in Boston. Over the last 22 years, thanks to incredible staff and wonderfully supportive clientele, Jane has expanded her restaurant 3 times, kept her catering business fantastically busy and added her shop of unique gourmet gifts. A locavore, Jane’s love of fresh food has allowed her to incorporate a variety of locally-sourced ingredients and foods into the Lafayette community!


Organic Selections

At Jane's we hold ourselves to the highest standards of quality when it comes to the food we serve, but we also care about making your experience with us a natural and healthy one. Therefore, we proudly use only organic selections in our deli to ensure that all our guests ever taste is their food.


Of course, quality is paramount to us here at Jane's and we take great care to carry only the highest quality products in our store and to serve only the finest foods to our dining guests.

Our Happy Customers

Over the years and years that Jane's has been serving the community, many of our guests have truly become like family to us. We know them by name, and we know what they like.

It is an important aspect of our business that we create an atmosphere of warmth and comfort and that we treat each and every guest as an individual and not just a face in the crowd. We enjoy getting to know our clients, and that's what allows us to provide the high level of service and quality for which we are known.

See what our clients say about us.

Yum is right. It's an odd location, I have been to weddings and other events at this location and it always comes off. Jane and her staff do their best for this town that can barely support high quality places. I had Jane bake a birthday cake a month after 9/11 for my daughter's second birthday... It was a great cake, we needed something to smile about and Jane and everyone needed the work. Jane is a perfectionist and I appreciate her art. I wish I would stop in more often. I wish this establishment the best and it is worth it.

Great wine selection, I wish I wasn't on such a budget!

My daughter is such a picky eater, but she loves going to Jane's and creating her own sandwich and lunch selections. That is our mommy/daughter lunch date place as she calls it. Jane's will always be a special place for us.
