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 their own bakery, from traditional family recipes. Glenn, a coffee perfectionist, distinguished a unique line of roasted and flavored coffee products.
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.
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 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!
