Updated Cafe Information


Welcome to Chef Mario's Wycliff Café!


Due to the Current State of affairs, we are carefully watching our Cafe hours and sales. We do appreciate being able to get our customers delicious food, but when daily sales drop below a certain level, we cannot sustain our hours. 

We are taking a short break until after the Memorial Day week to complete a couple of projects and do some future planning! 

We will re-open on June 1, but will be assessing daily if this is sustainable.


Forget the drive through line at your local chain! Come and join us for a delicious lunch Monday through Friday. You can easily park, stroll on in to our Cafe, and get some delicious scratch-made food that you know didn't come from a bag of frozen nuggets, or bag of pre-cut food. You can take your food back to you office or have a seat in our dining room - there are even patio seats if it is a nice day. 

We are a hidden gem located in the lower level of the Dewberry Office building on Wycliff Road just down the street from Rex Hospital. It may take you a few minutes to find us, but you will never forget us! Our Cafe is set up up as Cafeteria style and is served 'to-go' so you can grab a delicious bite on the run without missing a beat! 

We offer Breakfast from 8 am-10 am and lunch from 11:30 am-2:00 pm (NEW: Closed for Breakfast on Wednesdays); featuring a menu made in-house, from scratch. While we do offer a Standard ala Carte Menu, our Best Sellers are found on our Daily Specials menu. Every day we feature a hearty entree, one or more house-made soups, fresh salads, hot sandwiches, scratch-made desserts, and more. We have a large indoor seating area outside the cafe as well as outdoor tables if you want to sit and enjoy! Don't miss out on our Hot and Fresh Fridays! We bake cookies fresh from scratch all through lunch on Friday's. 

Our Daily Specials Menu can be found at the top of this page and will be available by 10:00 every day. So, stop back every morning to see what we have up our sleeves for the day. We also post our menu on Facebook. If you want instant gratification, simply send us your e-mail address through the Contact Us page and we will add you to our Daily Cafe Blast (don't worry, we will not sell your e-mail address to anyone!)
