The Jac offers mouthwatering, handmade desserts

Visitors can now indulge in a sinfully delicious slice of cake at The Jac. The new scratch kitchen on Periwinkle Way has added Harriette Mattson, a well-known baker who for 37 years owned and operated the popular Harriette’s Restaurant in Key Largo.

Harriette’s Restaurant became a beloved destination for its one-of-a-kind, nearly 8-ounce muffins. Some of the most popular flavors included key lime and coconut, guava and cream cheese and chocolate coconut. Now, Mattson is taking it up a notch at The Jac with mouthwatering cakes.

Whether you have a birthday or anniversary to celebrate, a dinner party to plan or a major sweet tooth to curb, The Jac’s new cakes are a must-have. Mattson’s coconut cake has quickly become a fan favorite. Other delectable options include rum cake, chocolate ganache, strawberry cake, and her authentic key lime cake.

Mattson is also tempting visitors with rice pudding, peach cobbler and a key lime tart with a graham cracker crust. Each oversized slice is just $8, or customers can pre-order an entire cake starting at $30.

Plus, with fall approaching, Mattson is getting ready with seasonal desserts. Soon, visitors to The Jac will be able to enjoy delectable pumpkin spice bread with nuts, and come December, it’ll be time for orange cranberry nut bread.

There’s a sweet reward for everyone at The Jac. Guests who want to let loose can step out to the brand-new Back Bar, open daily from 4 p.m. to midnight, featuring live music every Tuesday-Saturday. The Jac is open for lunch and dinner every day from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. To see The Jac’s menu and full event calendar, visit

  1. My second review.. been going to the Jacaranda for years. Every year we would come, our first stop was the Jacaranda. One of our favs. The Jac is no different now that we are locals.

    Love the new menu. While looking at my bill, I noticed you charge a surcharge for using my credit card. Big mistake. It’s a good way to lose customers.

    1. This has been a common complaint among our patrons, we have decided to include the credit card cost in the item itself rather than a separate charge as of yesterday! Hope to see you again soon!
