Maude's is now NoRa

Maude's has always been the heart of North Raleigh.  To reflect that as well as the expansion of hours (now open to 10 pm Monday-Saturday and 8 pm on Sunday) as well as the addition of wine and beer, we're formally changing the name to NoRa.  The name reflects both the geographic location of NoRa as well as our wonderful neighbors and the sense of community they exhibit during their visits.  We are working on upgrading our kitchen now and will be serving a wider selection of breakfast, lunch and evening small plates.   We look forward to welcoming ALL to your neighborhood meeting spot.

new hours

Monday - saturday: 7:00am to 10:00pm
