East State - Made From Scratch - Mary's Market - Cafe & Bakery


Situated on one of Rockford’s main thoroughfares, the East State café is our original flagship location and on the way to just about everywhere. It’s the birthplace of the tantalizing tastes, classic recipes and superior service you’ve come to expect from all of our cafés.


Besides the usual breakfast, lunch and dinner offerings, our convenient location and extensive menu makes this café an ideal space to host any number of events, whether a private, personalized birthday party — our newly renovated banquet room provides the perfect blank canvas for your decorations and can seat up to 75 people — a small business meeting, or nearly anything in between.


After choosing the banquet room or a smaller private dining room, our staff will work with you to create the perfect menu and ambiance so that your event space can be the least of your worries. Need a vegan entrée? Not a problem. Gluten-free guests? We have you covered. Audio-visual presentations? We’re ready to set you up.


Just need a cup of coffee and an afternoon pick-me-up snack? We’re all over that, too.

The food here is so fabulous!!! It’s a treat every time I come!!
