Mary’s on Davie bids farewell after more than four decades

It’s the end of an era as Mary’s on Davie — also known as Hamburger Mary’s — has announced it is shutting its doors.

The retro diner, which has been a mainstay in the 2SLGBTQ+ community since it opened, has stood in the same location in the heart of Davie Village for more than four decades.

“Hamburger Mary’s stands as Canada’s longest-standing globally inclusive restaurant, originating in 1979 under the creative vision of local drag luminary, Mrs. G.,” the owners said in its farewell statement on social media.

The venue is known for its support of local charitable organizations such as A Loving Spoonful, which provides free meals for people living with HIV.

It is also known for its drag shows.

There may be some hope for the restaurant, however. In their goodbye post, the owners hint at the possiblity of relocation.

“As the partners of Mary’s on Davie embark on new adventures, we invite you to stay tuned for our next exciting venture, soon to be unveiled to the public,” it said.

Mary’s will close March 13.
