Mama D’s Coffee

Story Time Catelyn Picco Story Time Kids Music Live music at Mama D's Wales Waukesha Genesee Depot Lake Country Family Fun

Mama D’s Coffee brings charm, warmth, and exceptional coffee at three locations (Wales, Waukesha, and Genesee Depot).  Each building we call home has history and character, and we are fortunate to have been welcomed by each community with loving arms and smiling faces. In fact, Mama D’s Coffee was voted Best Coffeehouse in the greater Milwaukee area for 2016 and 2017! From students, dog-walkers, work commuters, bicycle enthusiasts, to anyone searching for a sweet treat, classy coffee, and a cozy destination…you can surely find all of that and more at Mama D’s!
Mama D’s proudly serves Valentine Coffee, roasted in Milwaukee.  We have a full breakfast and lunch menu (also open for dinner in Wales).  Try our famous baked oatmeal or homemade quiche for breakfast (or a waffle in Waukesha or Genesee Depot), a panini (try a turkey pesto), wrap, soup (by The Soup Market), or salad for lunch.  We are so fortunate to have two in-house bakers that provide freshly baked treats for all of our shops (try the pumpkin chocolate chip muffin or our new addition…pie!).  We have gluten-free and vegetarian options. And of course, we have an extensive drink menu of “Mama’s Favorite” flavored lattes, tea, smoothies, seasonal specials, or a simple mug of black coffee…we’ll find something to fill your craving!
