New Adventures in Winston-Salem, NC

Welcome to Mary’s Gourmet Diner. They opened their restaurant on June 4, 2010, but they’ve actually been around for a while. This culinary adventure officially began in June 2000, with the opening of a little place called Mary’s Of Course!, a family-owned and run café that served breakfast and lunch 6 days a week. It had come to Mary’s attention that fresh food made from scratch and assembled while you wait, were practically novel ideas to many people.

So, for ten years Mary built a rabid fan base and thriving business that soon outgrew it’s location. At 10 a.m. the coolers would be stocked to the gills, and by 2 p.m. they were bare! The line waiting for the doors to open eventually grew out into the street, and the wait for empty tables grew long! This was especially true on Sundays, when we dispensed with some of the lunch fare (certain soups, salads and sandwiches), and served that delightful meal that is not quite breakfast and not quite lunch; known as Brunch!

In 2008, after numerous offers to start franchises and open more locations, an offer occurred that finally felt like the right thing to do. Mary was shown an old bank building on the edge of the Arts District that “…appeared to me like a pop-up book the first time I walked in!” She envisioned a new kitchen, multiple dining rooms, and outdoor seating like never before!

Bring a friend, have a conversation while you eat, take a moment to enjoy your food, make new friends, bring your sufficiently behaved children, absorb the atmosphere and relax.
