Madeline Becomes Mars Cafe (And Stuff is Half Off For Their Grand Opening)

Yesterday Lunch’er Kate emailed in to let us know that Madeline, the catering company/take out place on 39th btw. 5+6th, has closed and Mars Cafe is now open in its place.  She says it’s more of a generic deli now, with a self serve hot food bar, “sandwiches, salads, burgers wraps, mexican food, apparently korean food (Bibimbap, bulgogi, spicy pork bulgogi, and LA Galbi), fresh squeezed juices and smoothies, etc etc.” And the best part is… “they’re having a 50% all hot foods for the rest of the week for their grand opening.” Could be good! Early adopters, let us know how it is in the comments.

    Stopped by to take a look and it is not good. There were only a handful of people inside when I arrived and those people in line looked pretty pissed off due to what I can only assume had been a long wait for terrible looking for. As far as their “half-off” hot food, it only includes their insipid looking by-the-lb steam table. And they are charging $4.99 a lb, so on a normal day it would be $10/lb. That is just outrageous. I couldn’t get out of the place fast enough. I didn’t get any food but I certainly wouldn’t recommend it to anyone!

    yup..i went in today too, saw a sign on the wall that said they were discontinuing the 50% off as of Sep 6, except for coffee and some smaller items…

  • I had a similar experience. Thankfully, it is right next to Lan Sheng so all is forgiven.

    I went and ate it. It was all right. For $5 it is not too bad. I miss Madeline’s really.

    Is the by the pound discount still available today?
