Café & Restaurant
Located in the heart of Fort Greene, Maison May is more than the sum of its pieces. Physically two distinct locations – a brownstone and a café – it offers its guests multiple spaces: Private rooms for celebrations; a showroom displaying and selling meaningful objects for the home; and a café to eat and unwind in.
Mostly though, Maison May is the true expression of Catherine May‘s belief that by inviting people into her home and feeding them, every meal turns into a celebration.
We invite all of our guests to join in that celebration.
Open everyday / 8am to 5pm
Opened in 2016, Maison May Vanderbilt is a labor of love and the authentic expression of owner Catherine May’s aesthetic.
Around the corner from the original Brownstone – at the border of Fort Greene and Clinton Hill – it invites bypassers to take a break and enjoy a light and healthy all-day breakfast and lunch fare, gluten-free pastries, or a glass of natural, biodynamic wine. Our no laptop policy helps you to decompress and to take a closer look at the beautiful items that owner Catherine May handpicks every season.
The seasonal, market-driven breakfast and lunch menu is available all day from 8 am to 5 pm. Enjoy it at one of our communal tables or outside on the terrace while taking in the charm of Fort Greene.
Open Saturday & Sunday / 10am to 3pm
Maison May Dekalb is the mainstay of the Maison May lifestyle brand. As a restaurant staple in the rapidly changing neighborhood of Fort Greene, the Brownstone has drawn Brooklyn residents for breakfast, lunch, and dinner for many years.
Recently, the Dekalb location has focussed increasingly on its growing demand as an event location. However, the Brownstone is still open for weekend brunch in the garden and keeps attracting a steady crowd. Insiders value the lush, hidden garden for its tranquility and the seasonal brunch and lunch menu.
Maison May Dekalb is a sought after destination for all kind of events – from baby showers over birthdays celebrations to weddings. Hence, weekend brunch guests always have a good chance to catch a glimpse of a ceremony or a celebration lunch taking place in the one of a kind Fort Greene garden.
Fabulous little place. Came for brunch to check out their food and atmosphere, and will be having an event here in the future. Food was excellent, the truffle poached eggs and grits were a hit. The Rosemary lemonade was SO GOOD. Really nice decor and the perfect "vibe", love the outside seating. Service was friendly, great little neighborhood spot.
(...) Came here for Sunday brunch because Olea was too crowded, and didn't have to wait much for 3 and absolutely loved our choice. Service slightly slow since there seemed to be only one person waiting most tables, but we weren't in a rush and the meal was perfect. We asked for the most recommended baked goods and each got a GF sweet potato muffin. It was chewy but soft (not like a fluffy cake texture) and warm, just delightful. (...) Would love to come back any day.
Absolutely beautiful inside. The owner was extremely friendly. The food was good and the smoothie/blended drink was delicious. The prices were slightly on the high side, but there's a no tipping/no gratuity policy so that makes it pretty reasonable. There's lots of seating so it's a good spot to sit and chat and relax.
Came here on a Sunday afternoon for a quick bite to eat. This place is absolutely adorable. The decor is beautiful, there are plenty of places to sit and relax with your meal and its quiet. The service was very welcoming, warm and the food came out very quickly. (...) I really like the food here and it is a good spot if you're looking for something simple yet satisfying.
(...) I feel it's wonderful to have a place in the neighborhood where one can just chill and read a book or draw, or write letters or read the newspaper, which by the way Maison May provides free of charge. I too am one of the laptop workers and I just go elsewhere for my work needs and go to Maison May when I need a break from all that screen time.(...)
