Mae’s Market and Cafe Is a New Gourmet Grocery Store in Alexandria


Chia seed pudding swirled with passion fruit puree. Roasted beets tossed in pomegranate molasses. A yogurt parfait layered with sweet mascarpone. These are a few of the gourmet prepared foods that await you at Mae’s Market and Cafe. The new neighborhood market boasts a large lineup of grab-and-go goods, as well as made to order sandwiches (for lunch and breakfast), baked treats, salads, and specialty coffee drinks.

Stop in for breakfast to warm up with a latte and a biscuit breakfast sandwich stuffed with fennel sausage and roasted strawberry preserves. Or enjoy a slice of the herby frittata infused with fresh greens, or maybe a fried egg and cheese with parsley-shallot butter on a croissant. Craving something sweet? Pair your coffee with a raspberry-peach scone or a pear danish. For lunch, treat yourself to a fresh sandwich such as the roast beef, Italian grinder, or classic BLT with organic greens. Complement the sammy with some house-made lemonade or Blue Ridge Bucha—organic kombucha that Mae’s keeps on tap. You can even swing by after work for a glass of wine or a craft beer with some cheese and charcuterie—take home some extra when you find something you like!
