This place was recommended to us by the owner of another local restaurant, and our only regret is that we didn't discover it earlier in the weekend. First, they make a REALLY good latte, which always wins points with me. The service was absolutely outstanding,...More

This is a great place to have breakfast and interact with local folks. For healthy eaters they make great oatmeal with creative toppings. For those more indulgent, the daily scramble or multiple omelette options make for a wonderful start to the day. Also enjoy the...More

Normally not a huge fan of breakfast but this place could definitely change my mind. Everything was done to perfection. The waitress was super busy and was doing her very best, you couldn’t have asked for a better server. Definitely bring your appetite.

Enjoyed having lunch at Mama D's. Excellent soup and sandwich. Heard others say good things about breakfast. Maybe breakfast there next summer.

Mama D's is a neighborhood place. Its warm and charming. Laurie and Noel really make it fun too-as well as very tasty. I love Laurie's mushroom/swiss omelets and her delicious muffins. Its fun to sit inside or eat outside. Love it here!

What a lovely neighborhood café! We stayed in the area for two nights and, since continental breakfast at a local hotel is not exactly our cup of tea, we found this gem and enjoyed our breakfast/brunch there twice! Very cosy, fantastic menu choices, everything was...More

Every website I looked at suggested Mama D'Souza would be open for business but there was a small chain across the steps to the door saying that they were closed. Don't know if it is just for a week or until Spring.More

We thoroughly enjoyed our breakfast the other day. The coffee was delicious, and I got to choose my own mug! The food was good, and served by a friendly and gracious host. It's the kind of place where you want to linger.
