Came here for breakfast and was definitely satisfied with the food! Good pancakes and other grub. Fiancé wasn't too happy with the crepes. But otherwise it was a good meal!

Mama's has a wide variety of food for brunch, pretty much anything you could want. What is special is the decor, filling the walls with pop and local Marin memorabilia. On the weekend you have some great piano accompaniment for your brunch.

Brunch on the weekends is a must in this funky little restaurant. It includes a piano player - great fun and the food is very good. A family of six and smile all around.

Breakfast was pretty good. Got huevos rancheros that weren't very authentic but ingredients were fresh and it tasted above average. The waffles & French toast were absolutely done right & delicious. It's a very unique cafe as you've probably noticed in the other reviews, it's...More
