This spot is great and I'd come back here again in a heartbeat, but each time I went there the baristas were pretty young and seemed frazzled. One didn't even know they supposedly sold soup, or what kind it was, or even where it was,...More

Went for a ride through Woodstock and Pheonecia with my family and we decided to stop and possibly get a cup of coffee or something small from Mama's Boy Market. Upon pulling up to the building we realized the building was a little run down...More

Normally I try not to respond to negative reviews because responses just come off as argumentative, but I obviously need to respond here as your accusations are very serious. First of all, the tamales are not moldy, discoloration in corn husks occur naturally. We buy...More

Their pecan pie isn't too sweet (hard to find), the peach pie has the right acidity, and all the crusts are properly flaky. I never know what pie they'll have -- I just get a piece because after all my visits, I know I'll love...More

Mama's boy is a homey, funky, coffee shop in the heart of Phoenicia. Michael has created his own blend to create the best cup of coffee for miles around. The food is homemade style comfort food. His soups are deeelish. My wife likes the pulled...More

Clean, shabby, friendly and with delicious food. The establishment has a "Pay it Forward" blackboard where people can buy coffee or baked goods for those less fortunate than themselves. It is clearly a community minded establishment. The bakery goods and coffee are excellent. They also...More

We went to mama's Boy based on a recommendation, and from it's cool website. I am an annoying coffee snob so take this as you wish. The coffee was weak and not flavorful. They claim "best coffee in Phonecia" so I thought it worth mentioning....More

Well, when you're right you're right. Here's what likely happened.. Our coffee brewer broke down on a busy weekend in September and I was forced to go out and buy a less-that-ideal temporary replacement until our new brewer arrived. During that period, we may have...More

Loved the eclectic, unpretentious decor and unbelievably friendly service, not to mention the creamy, foamy lattes. Will come back - often!

Phone: 845-688-3050 This cafe/market opened at the end of May 2010, and we discovered it when we visited Phoenicia for a weekend in October 2010. It features homemade and local-sourced food in a very casual atmosphere (no table service - you order and pay for your food, then have a seat). We stopped by three times because we enjoyed the food so much and we thought the owner (Michael) was great. He is supporting the community in tangible ways (sponsoring scarecrow-making and a Halloween parade) while serving delicious food. They are even serving s'mores by a campfire in front of the store on Friday and Saturday evenings! Makes me want to live in Phoenicia.....
Mama's Boy serves Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner; you can stop in for a cup of coffee/tea/hot chocolate, dessert, or a whole meal. Michael will make you feel welcome no matter what.
