Cheesecake

What's more delicious than our original cheesecake? We tend to believe nothing is. 

Breakfast

Need something a little more substantial than our fresh baked pastries? Well, we've got that covered with our full breakfast menu. 

Lunch & Dinner

That's right. We've got lunch too.

We believe in our food

We cook and bake items that we would want to eat. Everything we serve is made to the standards and quality that we would want to serve to our own families.

We pride ourselves on the craftsmanship of our food.  

Breakfast, coffee, lunch, dessert, gelato - we've got it all. We encourage spending a whole day at one of our cafes. Order a coffee when you come in, one of our egg sandwiches (we call them smashers) for breakfast, a salad for lunch and our hearty burgers for dinner.

And as your night comes to a close be certain to try any one (or more!) of our award -winning desserts including: brownies, cookies, lemon bars, cheesecake, mousse, gelato - and much, much more!

Our Story


Mara's Desserts

Mara Magley and her husband Glenn founded Mara’s Café & Bakery in 1984 at the urging of family and friends. Right from the start, Mara’s began offering customers the highest quality, delectable desserts made fresh in our own bakery, from traditional family recipes. Glenn, a coffee perfectionist, distinguished a unique line of roasted and flavored coffee products using a small industrial roaster. 

This “Mom and Pop” shop became a family affair when sons Ian and Devan joined the business. After nearly twenty years of establishing a reputation for serving up the best coffee and desserts in town, Mara’s knew it was time to expand not only the business, but the menu as well.

Mara's Cafe

In 2004, Mara’s Cafe opened in Denville, NJ in order to provide customers with enhanced product options. Customers from all over soon realized Mara’s was the best place to enjoy a delicious meal in a cozy atmosphere. Mara’s is continually recognized for its excellent food, drinks, service and has been honored with numerous awards and rave reviews!

 

Our future is bright with 5 currently open, or soon to be open, franchises and more on the way. But to get where we are and will be, we have relied upon the wonderful community support each of our cafes have received. Our foundation is built upon good products and you.

Our goal is to create a dining experience for our customers that we would want for ourselves, with a highly qualified and satisfied staff, offering the highest quality coffee, food, desserts, and more!
