First stop on the bucket list….Mama’s Boy!
Who in Athens hasn’t heard of or been to Mama’s boy. It is the go to place for breakfast in Athens. During the weekdays it is possible to get in but if you want to eat there on Saturday or Sunday morning, plan to wait at least an hour for a table. There is limited seating but a lot of charm and character in this small restaurant.
My friends have always raved about it but I had always been weary of waiting for over an hour for a table. My friends finally convinced me to go and boy, was it worth it!!! My experience was great. We went on a Monday morning so there wasn’t near as long of a wait, they actually seated us quite quickly. I ordered the veggie scrambler and it was so yummy, I ate the whole thing.
A few pro tips if you’re planning on making a trip to Mama’s Boy soon:
- Go during the weekday
- Go earlier if you can (the later in the morning the more crowded it gets with hungover college kids!)
- Parking is limited…very limited. Be prepared to circle the lot a few times in order to find a spot. (If you’re within walking distance, I highly recommend walking there)
- make sure to order a biscuit!! They are to die for (Also, the chocolate milk is unbelievable)
Hopefully these few tips can make your next trip to Mama’s Boy as enjoyable as possible!
