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!

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.

I must say that does seem like quite a wait, however, we are a small CAFE, our kitchen crew is 3 and when large parties come in it does push things back. Thank for your review and we do try very hard to please. I'm...More

We almost didn't eat here since it was cash only but decided to give it a try and glad we did. The atmosphere was nice and the owner and staff friendly. They have soups, salads, sandwiches, muffins, and cookies. Our choices tasted great.
