Jackie's Cafe is a café in EarthBound. It is shown to be a somewhat unpopular café.[1] In the Japanese version of the game, the café is actually a bar, which serves alcoholic drinks instead of coffee.


During the time when Paula was kidnapped, Ness and Jeff visit and then hear commotion on the outside. Everdred is found lying on the outside badly wounded. He informs Ness that he stole the Mani-Mani Statue from Happy Happy Village and brought it to Fourside, but it was stolen from him by Geldegarde Monotoli. He tells Ness to check behind the cafe counter before walking away. When Ness examines the space behind the counter, he is taken to the dimension of Moonside, dark backwards parallel to Fourside. The duo find the Mani-Mani Statue and destroy it, when that happens it is revealed that Moonside was actually the cafe warehouse and Moonside was an illusion created by the Mani-Mani Statue. According to the mouse in the room, the two were walking around in circles in the room for a long time. It is later revealed that Monotoli visited here and he had hidden the Mani-Mani Statue in the warehouse.

As they are leaving, Ness receives a call from Apple Kid who is going to send his invention, Gourmet Yogurt Dispenser, via Escargo Express' neglected class.

After Porky escapes on the Monotoli helicopter, Aloysius Minch can be found here. He makes Ness swear not to inform Lardna Minch about his whereabouts.


  • In the background of the music, a sample of the theme of the 1930s film Our Gang and a part of Star-Spangled Banner is faintly heard.
