MAMA D’S COFFEE

 
Mama D's Wales Mini Markets Waukesa Genesee Coffee Shop

Mama D’s proudly serves Valentine coffee along with tasty food made fresh! And our sweets will satisfy any sweet tooth. We bring charm and warmth to our two locations in Wales and Waukesha. Each building has history and character amidst communities we are proud to serve.

Supporting other local businesses is important to Mama D’s and we are proud in offering Sassy Cow milk from Columbus, WI for our delicious lattes and other specialty coffee drinks, and farm-fresh eggs from Three Brothers Farms for breakfast sandwiches and burritos, egg bakes, and quiches. We also offer a variety of soups from The Soup Market in Milwaukee which change daily and range from the more traditional Loaded Baked Potato to the more exotic African Peanut and Chicken. 

Our baristas are adept at making every drink a work of art and take pride in delivering a product of the best caliber to ‘honor the bean’. Much of what you purchase at Mama D’s is made from scratch. From the baked oatmeal to the daily- made muffins, keeping things fresh. We serve a wide variety of sandwiches to quench all cravings. Gluten-free and vegetarian options are offered as well.

Store hours vary per each location but can be found in detail at MAMADSCOFFEE.COM. You can also visit our Facebook page, Mama D’s Coffee, or follow us on Instagram @mamadscoffee to find out the latest information on open mic nights, poetry readings, or when you can stop in for the next Mama D’s Cares Day in which 10% of our profit goes to a local charity picked by the staff. We look forward to meeting you! – Mama D
