I love bringing all of their delicious desserts to birthday parties and celebrations, I am constantly asked where I get them and it's Mara's every time! I have never been disappointed by this bakery and am always excited to see what tasty treat they'll come up with next! If you're in the area and have time, definitely check them out!... More

The atmosphere here was welcoming and friendly. I was hesitant to try something so rich for a dessert, because I'm not one for sweets; I'm glad my much wiser friend advised me to get dessert. In her words, "it's the best dessert you'll ever have", she wasn't underselling it at all. The meal was delicious from start to finish! I... More

What is not to like. We had a cupcake, cookie and chocolate covered strawberry and they all were great. At 8 on a Saturday night, the place was packed with a line, which is what you want to see. Great improvements and looking forward to having the bakery right next door.

I like to not have dessert at the local places, go for a little walk and stop in here for a nice selection of cakes, pies, ice cream - desserts

Since they opened probably more than a decade ago I wanted to stop by. Somehow we never made it until our first and last visit couple of month ago. I was surprised how run down the place was, appeared shabby and even dirty. I was hoping to discover delicious looking pastries and cakes in the display case and was disappointed.... More

Mara's Cafe and Bakery has continued to be a favorite spot of mine. I have an insatiable sweet-tooth and the Caramel Apple Streudel, Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie, and Kahlua Ganache Cake just always seem to hit the spot, not to mention their great creme filled lattes. I always, always pick one up for lunch. I've also tried their Raspberry Oatmeal... More

A great little nook to have a quick bite or dessert with a hot beverage. You'll definitely want to take some of the baked goods home. Mara's is a household name around these parts and everyone should experience it.

Nice warm place to eat - ranging from lunch to dinner to dessert . We had burgers which were priced reasonable / they toasted the bread and they were very good , average size burgers . Small portion of fries but they were excellent . Their signature sauce is quite spicy. Later we had their original cheesecake . This was... More

I have been coming here for years with my wife and friends. In the last year the place has been dirty and in need of a serious renovation. I have not been here in awhile so I decided to go last night. The place was not clean and the service was horrible.

Mara's is in downtown Denville, a charming town. They offer lunch but are known for their delicious desserts. We often come here after having dinner elsewhere for coffee and dessert. Everything is fresh and the service is great. In the summer there are several tables outside. Even in the cooler weather it seems that the locals still come in. Although... More
