Pyschedelic Comfort Food

Mama's Royal Cafe

Colin wanted a different breakfast experience one morning, so I took him to Mama's Royal Cafe in Mill Valley. If the colors of this place don't wake and cheer you, nothing will.

Mama's Interior

The interior is historically colorful.

And it remains whimsical with only subtle shifts over time. With such a wild interior, I was puzzled as to how Colin could forget coming here with me and his mother and sister a few years ago. And it was nicer then to reintroduce him.

Eggs Benedict

Colin had an eggs benedict which had a fanciful name that I have since forgotten. It seemed to be the standard with the addition of fresh avocados. Colin approved.

My benedict type was without meat, and included a sliced grilled tomato and sauteed mushrooms. I definitely approved. Mama's is still dependably good.

As I write this I am staying in Fresno where I had quite an interesting dining experience. I can't wait to arrive home with photos of the fun places I've eaten on this trip.

Oh my gosh! Normally I steer clear of breakfast - - - just don't like what the choices are. But in this case I'd go for it. How absolutely appealing. Thanks for sharing.

This is an absolutely fun and tasty place easily found in Mill Valley. My twin niece and nephew love it too and request it when visiting from Long Beach!

Thanks for your comments!

Stayed in Sausalito and hit Mama's on the way up to Wine Country. You have to love a place where everything looks like it was stolen from the 60's and 70's. Food was real, service was so so. But service at breakfast is overrated. It was worth it for the local flavor. Really like this blog.
