About Us


The Atomic Cafe's first shop opened in Beverly, MA in 1996, fulfilling a dream (seriously, like one that comes when you're sleeping, not a daydream) that Andrew Mahoney had shared with his brother, John, a few years earlier. John was initially skeptical. "We don't know the first thing about running a cafe," he would object, to which Andrew is famously said to have replied, "How hard could it be?" with a cavalier shrug. Turns out, it can be pretty hard. Operating a cafe takes, not only an enthusiasm for coffee, food and culture (which the Mahoney brothers have plenty of) but also it takes some gruelingly hard work, a committed, and likewise enthusiastic staff of baristas, as well as a lot of luck.

The Atomic Cafe has since expanded into roasting coffee for its three cafes (the second one in Marblehead, MA and a third opened at the beginning of 2014 in Newburyport, MA) as well as for mail-order and wholesale customers throughout the country and garnered a reputation for providing the highest level of quality, consistency and service. We look forward to the opportunity, likewise, to impress you!
