A South Shore breakfast and lunch spot that has been featured by our sister site may be moving to a space where a longtime restaurant currently resides.
According to a source, the Mad Hatter Cafe in Weymouth is looking to move from its current home on Main Street to the Hajjar's space on Washington Street, with a Twitter post from @scanweymouth seeming to confirm this, showing a hearing agenda page that says the Mad Hatter is seeking the liquor license from Hajjar's to open in that restaurant's space. It is not known what changes might be in store for the Mad Hatter if it does move into the new space, nor is it known when the move might happen, so stay tuned for updates.
The Mad Hatter Cafe is known in part for its Irish-influenced breakfast and lunch items, including a traditional Irish breakfast, an Irish breakfast roll, beef stew, shepherd's pie, and chicken curry with rice. The dining spot has been mentioned on the Boston's Hidden Restaurants site as an under-the-radar spot to go to, with the review being found here:
Hajjar's traces its history back to a roller-skating rink that was established in the 1950s and was converted into a fitness club with a dining area in the 1980s before becoming a full-fledged restaurant.
The current address for the Mad Hatter Cafe is 119 Main Street while the address for Hajjar's is 969 Washington Street. The website for the Mad Hatter can be found at http://madhattercafe.us/ and the site for Hajjar's is at http://hajjars.net/
