Movie Night at NoRa

Want to get out without getting out?  NoRa is setting up an old-fashioned drive-in.  Come and order a cup of coffee, grab a muffin or order a Spicy Mocha.  We can bring it to your car.  We'll be putting up a big screen and showing "moving pictures" to keep you and the kids entertained from the comfort of your own car.  

We plan to start movies around sunset (approximately 7:35 pm).

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 18 wines 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.

Expanded hours

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

Sunday: 8:00 am to 8:00pm
