About Ace's Country Cupboard

A Family Restaurant

You're Hosts: Jim and Carol Ace

Jim and Carol grew up in Orchard Park, Jim near Ralph Wilson Stadium and Carol near Chestnut Ridge Park.  It was there that they met, married and started their family.

After camping in the Belfast area for a few years, they felt more at home in this beautiful region, so in 1974 they moved here with their four children - Darlene, Liz, Jim Jr., and Jeanne.

Jim had always wanted his own hot dog or ice cream shop and he grew tired of driving the 3 hour commute to work.  One evening on a drive into town to buy the newspaper, they spotted this building.  Originally built as a feed mill, and later used as a furniture store, they realized it would be a great little place to start a restaurant.

With the help of their children, Carol's parents, Bob and Helen VanRemmen and some good friends, they changed the old feed mill into their restaurant and opened in 1977.  Jim and Carol's daughter, Liz Clayson, still works with them at the restaurant.  Carol's brother Tom joined the crew when he returned from California in 1990.  And of course, a day wouldn't be complete without their grandchildren stopping to "help" out in the family tradition: Sarah, Emily, Hannah, Fletcher, and Sydney Paige.  Daughter-in-law Natalie Ace rounds out the family business.

Today, Ace's Country Cupboard is well known throughout the Southern Tier for their homemade soups and pies, slow roasted meats, specialty sandwiches made on breads you can't find anywhere else, and of course their famous boneless skinless Iceland haddock fish fries.

Whether you're starting the day with the freshest eggs, omelets, pancakes or waffles, refueling at lunch with a specialty sandwich and fresh cut French Fries, or finishing off your delicious dinner with a piece of their homemade fruit or cream pie, you can count on Ace's to give you plenty of the best food at a great price.  And for your special occasions, they offer their specialty catering in your facility or theirs.

Please enjoy your meal and remember....Good friends are always welcome here!
