Went there twice for breakfast and loved it both times. The breakfast burrito was huge, and my boyfriend loved ordering the three topping omelet with "bacon, cheese, and more bacon!". Cute atmosphere and the coffee was delicious.

Our server was very personable and gave great service. Food wasn't bad. We had the cinnamon roll french toast and a bowl of oatmeal. On a Sunday morning we had to wait quite a while for a table, so it appears to be popular. I would go back because they were friendly and the service was so good, but the... More

This is a great little place. Friendly people and great food. Weekends are very busy, which is always a good sign.

I had the chorizo burrito and it was great. The atmosphere is not for everyone since it is a strip mall near acupuncture and chiropractic clinic but it was great fit me. A good local find and well worth the visit

I've tried a lot of other places, but no one compares to Mama Kat's. This is my go to place for breakfast. The food is excellent and the servers are friendly without being fake. The wait can be considerable on weekend mornings, but they have coffee outside so you can chat and sip until they call your name. The interior... More

Stopped here for breakfast on our way to LA. The entire experience was enjoyable. The decor is cute and updated. The restaurant was clean. My girls had the kids pancakes and the kids biscuits and gravy, I had Eggs Benedict with spinach and my husband had biscuits and gravy. Every plate was completely clean. It was delicious. Staff was attentive... More

Stopped in for breakfast early on a weekday. Bacon & eggs, hash browns and toast were good and moderately priced. The server was friendly and provided excellent service.

I've eaten numerous items on the menu, for both breakfast and lunch and every one of them has been delicious. It is obvious they use high quality ingredients, and although it is not the cheapest place in town, you really do get what you pay for. All the staff there really make you feel welcome and like one of the... More
