Jam’s Breakfast & Brunch Restaurant is switching things up to stay in operation during the COVID-19 pandemic.

When the “breakfast spot” closed down in March due to the pandemic, the sous-chef Jason Lee didn’t want the food in the fridge to go to waste so he suggested offering an affordable family-style meal for curbside pick-up and delivery and the idea took off.

“It has been incredibly well received,” said Jam’s Owner Brad Stefaniuk.

“We wanted to keep it affordable because we know a lot of people are having a hard time financially right now, so it’s $15 a person and you’ve got a great meal made for you that you don’t even have to think about.”

The family meals have included perogies, pork belly, turkey pot pies and fried chicken and sausage, among other delights.

“We cook good, whole food,” said Stefaniuk. “It’s high quality with no short cuts, no refined sugars; we like to do it all from scratch.”

He added that many of the family meals are gluten-free or can be made to order that way.

Stefaniuk opened the restaurant in January and said they barely had a chance to get on their feet before the pandemic hit. He had to lay off four staff and reduce hours but plans to open back up with four or five tables on May 15.

“We are here to stay,” he said. “We may have been thrown a little bit of a curveball, but we want to grow with the city, and we are going to do whatever it takes to bring great food to Airdrie.”

Delivery/pick-up times are from 4 pm to 7 pm every day, just call Stefaniuk at 403-470-3740 to hear about the menu and order.

Also, on Wednesday and Thursday’s, Jam’s is offering perogies for sale by the dozen. The cheddar and potato delights are hand pressed and ready to be cooked. Call 403-470-3740 to order.
