Mama's House is located next to the bus station in Fira, and as the name suggests, it is a casual informal joint that dishes out wholesome food for travelers, both, the leisurely ones, as well as those who are in a bit of a rush to grab a mouthful before they move on.
The restaurant is run by Mama (a chatty, humorous and warm person), her husband, her brother Ionas, and of course, her little dog Jesse II, all of who have turned the place into a little family affair.
Mama's specializes in food that's very close to homemade fare. The breakfast at Mama’s is particularly popular and includes blueberry pancakes with maple syrup or home made jam, bacon and eggs, omelets, French toast, hash browns and steak. Other specialty dishes at Mama's include chicken soup with lemon (a staple in Greece), souvlaki, moussaka and the traditional baklava. The pricing is moderate.
