Mae's

Restaurant Details

With knee-to-ceiling windows on the north and west walls, a wealth of natural light washes across the white counter and the vibrant aqua vinyl stools and chairs. Mae’s is quite clean and decent and suggestive of a fairy-tale era where young love is measured in baseball euphemisms and cigarettes aren’t yet bad for your health. Open until four p.m. every day except Mondays, Mae’s menu is naturally focused toward breakfast and sandwiches. The butter burger is a good bet for lunch: two well-seasoned, hand-formed patties come various ways on a generously buttered bun. While the buildup towards Mae’s opening might have initially brought a few people in, it’s the quality food, mood and reasonable prices that are going to bring them back.
