Very good food and service in a bright cheery setting. I sat at the counter which worked quite well but there is a nice looking outside area that I'd like to try on my next visit.

Well worth the visit. Vintage décor, excellent service and outstanding food. Tastes like it sounds- like mom made it. large helpings of home cooked foods. kept us full all day and the place just seems homey and comfortable.

Although we went at lunch time, GMMC serves breakfast from 8:00 to 2:00 (the times that it is open, Tuesday through Sunday). We both ordered scrambled eggs and potatoes--the portions were huge--enough for two breakfast, so I got a carry-out box for breakfast the next day.

Mamas is never a disappointment when we are in town. The charm of the restaurant brings a sunny disposition no matter the weather outside. Our orders are always taken quickly and accurately, with wonderful service throughout the meal. The restaurant has great bloody Mary's and every food dish we have tried is always delicious. We will keep coming back every... More

Sat. morning is very busy and very noisy here. Sorry, but we found the food to be average breakfast fare. Would not go back on Sat. morning due to the noise inside, which was so loud it was hard to talk and hear at our table.

Several things here. We had a very large group coming in for a celebration. We went someone ahead to secure a table and they would not set anything up for us until we were pretty much all there. In my opinion not a very good way to run a business. Then when we did arrive it took over ten minutes... More

We had a large group and there wasn't a complaint from anybody in our group, which is rare. We had 16 people, which they accommodated. The coffee, food, and service was very good. We were all surprised how fast our food came out to us. Highly recommended place!

This was my third or fourth time at GMM's Cafe and it is consistently busy (20+ minute wait - sooo worth it), energetic, bright and cheery, tasty, and filling. I had bacon and eggs and French toast. The orange juice was fresh. Never disappointed. I'll be back.

With the name I was fully expecting a breakfast like a mama would make. Mama delivered! The coffee was fresh, hot and oh so good! I ordered eggs Benedict and fried potatoes. The eggs Benedict was truly some of the best I've ever had! The atmosphere was noisy yet fun! People of all ages! There is an outdoor eating area... More
