Mae’s Market & Cafe opens in Old Town

Mae’s Market & Cafe is open for business at the sprawling Atrium Building in Old Town.

The coffee shop/all-day food market opened last week in space formally occupied by Society Fare. The Atrium Building was built in 1978 and is undergoing an upgrade with other new tenants, including ALX Community.

Mae’s is owned by Nicole Jones, the owner of Stomping Ground in Del Ray. It’s named after her grandmother who taught her how to cook, and serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. The menu includes made-from-scratch sandwiches, salads and baked goods.

Jones is also reportedly opening a wine bar named “Virginia’s Darling“, inside The Atrium Building next month.

The coffee shop and market is also hiring for all positions, and interested candidates should email [email protected]

Mae’s Marker & Cafe is closed Mondays, but is open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. every other day of the week.
