My daughter and I were shopping in Helena and decided to go somewhere different for lunch. Not the usual fast food fare. Stopped at MaMa Knows and were delighted by the unusual menu (changes daily). I chose the quiche & salad. My daughter had soup & sandwich. Very good flavors and reasonably priced. The salad dressings are made fresh every... More

Very excellent service and home cooking. The menu is limited but they serve food that we like. The home made pies are fabulous and the quiche is outstanding. We are definately going to eat breakfast her again

There is a limited menu that changes daily, but every item on it is fabulous! There are always quiches, scones, soups, salads, sandwiches, great deserts, and lots of creative extras. I fall in love with items I would have never ordered. There is a separate gluten free food storage area, grills, and pans, so there is no worry of cross... More

We had breakfast here and the stuffed lemon French toast was really good along with the egg scramble was good too! It wasn't too busy so that was nice. Would like to go back and try a piece of pie.

This has got to be the worst food Helena has to offer. My husband and I went there for breakfast. We were greeted and seated and handed a paper menu. It looked like a child colored them. There were 5 people working and we were the only ones in the place at 9 am...bad sign. The menu said all the... More

The menu changes daily, but it is reliably yummy. The service is very fast, so this is a great lunch place during the work week.
