Vince Cannone came to Walla Walla in 1988, bringing with him the culinary knowledge only a Sicilian heritage and a childhood spent in New York-style restaurants can produce. He and his wife, Kelle, have owned Jacobi’s Café twice during the restaurant’s existence: once from 1989 to 2000 and currently, since it reopened in 2009. Over the years, the Cannone family has carefully and lovingly maintained the depot’s historic charm and aesthetic. They’ve overseen its repairs and updates, and made sure little has been altered or removed. Vince and Kelle’s children, Anthony and Francheska, nearly grew up in the depot, learning the ins and outs of the building and considering it a second home as their parents worked in the kitchen and dining rooms of Jacobi’s Café.

Today, the Cannone family not only operates Jacobi’s from the staff offices, they prepare and cook quality artisanal meals in the kitchen, they bus and wait tables, they greet guests and they always take time to visit with diners. They bring “family owned and operated” to a new level, continually extending their Italian hospitality and feeding guests the hearty, authentic recipes the Cannone family has passed down from generation to generation. When you visit Jacobi’s Café, you are invited to experience the history of one of Walla Walla’s most iconic buildings while you dine like a true Italian; like you’re a part of the family.
