Fantastic Breakfast!

Go here for breakfast and feel like you are having a meal in someone's kitchen! Choose from the shelf of mismatched mugs and fix your own coffee, check out the specials on the chalkboard, and sit at one of the various, again, mismatched tables. I had an omelette from the specials menu, it was fresh... read more

What a great experience this was - a small off-the-beaten path cozy warm restaurant. Atmosphere so inviting - all staff had wonderful attitudes. Big breakfast was just what you need to start a long day of sightseeing. An elderly local gentleman makes the jellies and jams - so fresh and yummy. Hard to walk away without adding on a few...

We have visited Mama D's on vacation for several years. The food is excellent and the service friendly and courteous. From the time you step inside this cute place you are made to feel welcome. There are usually a few specials in additition to eggs, french toast, fresh fruit and breakast sandwiches on bagels or croissants. The fresh fruits bowls... More

Mama D's is one of those quintessential places that will remind you of every downhome local high quality restaurants found in small towns that forbids Mickey D's, BK, and others. Truly excellent food with special twists put on old stand by's. We had a very tasty breakfast special, scrambles with roasted red peppers and other tasty goodies, with home made... More

Food was really good. We first walked in and the seating was crazy they need to be more organized i asked a lady who was working here about sitting and she was nasty about it. Waited 20min to be served.... But over all our waitress was friendly. And food was good

We were so happy to find Mama D's! I wish we had found it on our first morning in Boothbay! Once we found it, we came back the next three mornings! Charming old house across from the top of the harbor. Service was good, but not exactly stellar (but they do a pretty high volume breakfast business). Egg sandwiches and... More

Just returned from a weeks vacation in Boothbay and decided rather than the obligatory Maine salt water taffy, I would bring the office a blueberry pie. I had seen the pie on the Shannon's Unshelled website, as they offer it on occasion. Went in on Friday to order it for Saturday AM pickup. When I arrived Saturday the pie was... More

A short walk from the Rocktide Inn. Excellent food, price and daily specials. Very quaint with a small town atmosphere, and great service. Small local group plays music from 6 to 8 on Wednesdays.

Weird atmosphere. Walked in and looking around no one addressed us. Finally someone said take a seat. Waited for over 5 minutes nothing. It was around 11:15 and apparently they have problems with the transition from breakfast to lunch. Seriously we were told it would be 20 min before they could take our order? We had somewhere to be at... More

We stopped by Mama D's after a recommendation from a co-worker, and she was right. For small-town ambiance with a down East warmth, Mama D's is the place. Small, quaint in and old Maine house, Mama D is willing to come out to chat, and show genuine Maine personality. As for the food, everything was beyond excellent; hot, fresh and... More
