Every website I looked at suggested Mama D'Souza would be open for business but there was a small chain across the steps to the door saying that they were closed. Don't know if it is just for a week or until Spring.More

We thoroughly enjoyed our breakfast the other day. The coffee was delicious, and I got to choose my own mug! The food was good, and served by a friendly and gracious host. It's the kind of place where you want to linger.

We almost didn't eat here since it was cash only but decided to give it a try and glad we did. The atmosphere was nice and the owner and staff friendly. They have soups, salads, sandwiches, muffins, and cookies. Our choices tasted great.

This was our second attempt to eat here and it was not worth the effort. It's a disorganized "come what may attitude" from the owner to the staff, there is no official check in desk and getting the attention of an employee to request a...More
