We came here based on a bunch of recommendations and it didn't disappoint. We were there on a Thursday morning, so fortunately we didn't have to wait! Everything was wonderful and we will be back. The food was hot & delicious. Our server was attentive, informative and nice. My only complaint is that there is only one unisex restroom in... More

Me and the family dropped in for breakfast and had the best biscuits...ever. Egg, cheddar and sausage is highly recommended. They blend their own sausage spices and it's really great. The bacon was thick cut and really good too though. All meat is local...ask them about it...pretty cool. Other dishes in the restaurant looked amazing.

Had the pulled pork hash with poached eggs. Pork was super tender, eggs were perfect, and the biscuit velvety. Coffee was fantastic and I'm a coffee snob. If u can find a place to park it's a must-try for Athens. Service superb as well.

My friend and I drove from Commerce, Georgia just to try their famous fluffy giant biscuits. it was so worth it. Although we were not able to eat there due to the waiting time being more than an hour ( that says a lot) we decided to order to go. Make sure to try their Peach toast and their honey... More

I've visited Athens many times, but I had never tried Mama's Boy. The food was filling, but it wasn't too much, the staff were friendly and attentive, and I didn't have to wait too long to be seated or to receive my food. It's really all you'd want in a breakfast place. The prices are a little high, but definitely... More

Great find on TripAdvisor. This place was delicious and the service is top notch. My husband had the peach filled French toast and of course I had a bite 😉and it was a good as it looked. The breakfast biscuits are just as delicious and the serving sizes are huge. Added this one to my favorites.

Excellent bisquits, grits, cinnamon rolls. Good locally roasted coffee. Go hungry, and expect to wait.

I go almost every Tuesday for breakfast with some friends from church. Food is always good and the entire staff has always been friendly. Ask for the poppy-seed butter to go on your biscuit. It's not on the menu, but it's a must have if you are having breakfast.
