Method to the Madness Cafe, a Shakesperean-inspired cafe recently opened its doors to Kenmore locals, serving all-day breakfast and turning into a lively bar by night.

Opening last December 2018, Method to the Madness Cafe pays homage to a famous line from Shakespeare’s Hamlet, “Though this be madness, yet there is method in’t”; and truly, there is more to this cafe than meets the eye, something you’ll discover once you step inside.

Method to the Madness Cafe is located at the corner of Marshall Lane and Moggill Road and owned by Reagan Nongkhlaw and Urvik Bhalani. The venue’s theme is undeniably inspired by the beloved Bard with a dedicated wall filled with his famous quotes, a bookshelf full of Shakespeare’s works, and dishes named after his plays, yet it has a modern and airy atmosphere.
