We used to be fans of Chef Kelly's cooking when she ran the Checkerberry Inn. We were delighted to recently discover she was now running Kelly Jae's Cafe in Goshen. It is an upscale restaurant (also have private rooms) that specializes in eclectic Tapas dishes, as well as large plate dinners. They use a lot of fresh and local food,... More

What a gem! I booked for a surprise birthday party and got better than I expected! They gave us the back room with no additional charge. The food was amazing and the service fabulous! If you have a chance to dine here, do it!

We stayed at a bed and breakfast in Middlebury, IN. Kelly Jae's was recommended by the owners of the the b&b. We were very please with our meal. The chicken wonton are great,the sauce that they have for them my be a little spicy for some. The grilled veggies are also great.

Always excellent food and nice atmosphere. This is a tapas restaurant - you can keep your entrees to yourself, but they are designed to share. A top chef uses locally grown produce to make flavorful combinations that burst with flavor. We enjoy every bite. We always bring out of town guests here for a delightful meal.

I had the opportunity to eat here during a business trip. I am not a fancy, cutting edge, hipster so I was more than apprehensive when I saw their website and read several reviews. Don't get me wrong, the reviews were great but the menu required me to hire a translator! I was pleasantly surprised when we arrived. The decor... More

I have followed this chef since she was at the Checkerberry Inn a few years ago. She has gone from excellent to outstanding. We were visiting the Goshen area on a short vacation, and the staff were good enough to squeeze us in on an early seating. Even though it was a busy night, the food was perfect. I highly... More

A surprisingly good and trendy spot in the little town of Goshen. Food is always excellent. Sometimes slower as each dish seems to be prepared fresh, but worth the wait.

Haven't been in a few years and delighted that menu was changed missed some of the older items but enjoyed trying the new ones. Be prepared if you are a big eater you will need to order a few dishes and at around $10 per plate choose wisely. We enjoyed sharing the foods so had quite a few different items... More
