While visiting friends they suggested we have breakfast here. We were so delighted at the choices they provided for breakfast, all made from fresh ingredients. We wanted to return but ran out of time to do so.

Found this quite by accident looking for a place to have breakfast, and it turned out to be a great find! The coffee was excellent and you just keep helping yourself to as much as you want. The Belgian waffles were super, eggs done right. A bit pricey, but it is a tourist location and seasonal besides so I can... More

We were on our way out and we went to have breakfast before we drove to Portland to fly out. Great little breakfast shop. Kids had waffells, I had eggs. Good service, great food and really decent price. I would stop there again in the future for breakfast. I really enjoyed it.

The thing to remember about Mama D's is that they have "rules". Many, many rules on how their customers must act in order to receive courteous service from their unenthusiastic waitstaff. And I'm not talking about common sense customer etiquette that should be expected of every restaurant patron; no, the Mama D's rules are unusual (like "no parties larger than... More

In town breakfast. Casual service, self serve coffee, multiple flavors, very good coffee. Tea options as well. Breakfast special, Eggs, Hash, Toast, all well cooked, should though have asked if the hash was prepared in-house. It was cooked decently with good browing but definitely a canned variety. Would have liked a jam for the toast along with the butter packets.... More
