If you walk by Mama’s between the hours of 12pm and 2pm, you’ll likely see a line down the street. That’s because Mama’s has some of the best vegetarian food in the area. Their falafel sandwich is what they’re best known for, but they also have plates of things like marinated eggplant served with hummus, vegetables, and pita that’s perfect for a quick, filling weekday lunch.
Mama’s Vegetarian is permanently closed.
