Mother's Review

Tourists and locals line up for solid—if unspectacular—down-home eats at this island of blue-collar sincerity amid downtown's glittery hotels. Mother's dispenses baked ham and roast beef po'boys (ask for "debris" on the beef sandwich and the bread will be slathered with meat juices and shreds of meat), home-style biscuits and jambalaya, and chicken and sausage gumbo in a couple of bare-bones—yet charming—dining rooms. Breakfast service is a bit slow, but that doesn't seem to repel the hordes fighting for seats at peak mealtimes. Service is cafeteria style, with a counter or two augmenting the tables.

    not worth the wait

    After reading glowing reviews I too waited in line the obligatory 30 minutes and was not impressed with my breakfast. Dry biscuits, thick tasteless ham, powdered eggs, ok grits, but loved the Bloody Mary.

    Mother's Review

    If you're looking for a gourmet breakfast, this ain't your place. If you want eggs (over lite, not over easy), grits, flour biscuits, big chunks of cured ham, and a big hunk of margarine, (now you're talkin), then this is your place. Give it a try if you're in town. Hang on to your receipt, cause you’ll need it to claim your food.
