Weekend Brunch

Monday, January 17th, 2011

It’s the weekend. You don’t need to eat cereal. And you certainly don’t need to wake up early.

Mars Cafe serves delicious variations on french toast along with other breakfast favorites every Saturday and Sunday from 9am to 1pm 10am to 2pm. Pair it with delicately balanced and skillfully made pour-over coffee (Chemex) to share and you’ll make a wonderful start to your weekend.

Find our brunch menu listed under the “Menu” navigation heading.

*update: our brunch hours have shifted. brunch starts at 9am and ends at 1pm.

Pour-over Coffee

Thursday, November 25th, 2010

June 22, 1960, Chemex

A lot of people keep asking the obvious question when the Chemex brewers (or other pour-over coffee brewers) get brought up:

What is so great that makes pour-over coffee better?


Bottom-line, the coffee just tastes better. There are a lot of variables we could talk about, but I’ll save those for a more in-depth Coffee Tasting. Most pour-over brewers give the user more control of all the variables that go into making a good cup of coffee after the roasting stage. That means that you can make a quality cup of coffee at home just the same as Mars Cafe or some other place. Granted, greater control of all the variables also means your end result will be just as consistent as you are with your process.

PS. They make a fantastic gift. Ask about our Chemex Pack (includes filters + 1/2lb coffee).

If you want to learn more, stop in for a Coffee Tasting. We host them every Saturday at 9am.
