Three Chicago locations

offering fresh food, plus a full menu of opportunities

Our Mather’s—More Than a Café locations aren’t just restaurants serving delicious, made-to-order meals. For those 50 and better, they offer fulfilling experiences like live entertainment, fitness classes, day trips, and lifelong learning opportunities. From watercolor workshops to lectures on Chicago history to Latin dance classes, there’s something for everyone at Mather’s—More Than a Café. There’s no membership—everyone is welcome to come in, grab a bite or a bottomless cup of coffee, and check out what’s happening that day.

As news of the coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to develop, Mather’s—More Than a Café has taken a proactive stance to close our locations to the public. We will provide updates via Facebook and email as they become available.
