We love Mammitas. The coffee (and horchata) are great. The food is authentic and tasty and the service is always fast and cheerful.

This place is truly incredible, the coffee is my favorite in all of Iowa City and the food and pastries are mouth wateringly good. They have smoothies that will literally blow your mind. The owner is also super nice and has a lovely flower shop in the back. All in all its an excellent place.

Tried Mammitas for the first time today and the horchata and espresso drink is AMAZING. Also tried their pastry and it was delicious. Staff are very friendly and welcoming. A local business I'm happy to continue to support!

The atmosphere was lovely, the workers are super friendly and sweet. The Tres Leche cake is delicious as is their coffee. It made my day! Definitely will be a study spot come the end of covid! Definitely bringing my parents here and referring it to others.

Super friendly, family-oriented, genuinely kind owners; you can tell they clearly care about their business.

The most amazing coffee shop and food service I have been too. It is ran by a whole family and every time I go there I see all of them working together to make my experience amazing. The smoothies and energy drinks are so good on a hot day but don’t forget to try their signature coffees like the Horchata. My family and I loves to com ... read more

My new favorite place!! Such a cute and welcoming environment and everything I have had from their menu is delicious. Their chorizo burrito is to die for and don't get me started on the horchata. A must visit!

Stopped by on our way through town, great local spot with fantastic breakfast burritos (just started serving hot food) and awesome coffee. Very friendly owner and practicing all COVID precautionary measures which was greatly appreciated.

I went in on Saturday looking for something for my mom for mother's day. I called to make sure I could come inside, because of social distancing and I called a minute after they opened! They were so sweet and I was able to get my mom a beautiful flower arrangement that she loved for a nice, fair price. I also picked up a latte for me ... read more

Great service and delicious drinks. Very flexible when making your order/drink, they allow you to switch many things out with different alternatives. Best dulce de leche i've ever had.
Robert McAuliffe via - Apr 29, 2020
Delicious coffee, and include some unique twists, such as a dulce de leche or horchata latte (I got the latter, and it was great). Also have friendly and warm staff, and some delicious looking baked goods I wasn't able to try. Definitely stop by if you're in town.

A very nice little shop - a welcome break from the other options in downtown which are always loud, overcrowded, and cookie cutter. The owner is very friendly and the coffee is incredible.
Hannah Bott via - Mar 16, 2020
Amazing find. The hot horchata was great! From Houston, TX and every time I'm in Iowa City, I'm stopping here.

It is nice to see a Latinx owned coffee shop in the area, and Mammitas serves up some really solid drinks. Their horchata with espresso was delicious, as was the concha. My girlfriend got a mango smoothie and it was very smooth and tasty. Overall I had a very great experience with the new shop. My only critiques is being confused on ... read more

A great new coffee shop here in Iowa City. I have only been there once, but it is already my favorite in the city. The coffee, service, and environment are all incredible. The woman who owns the shop is very kind and sweet. I would 100% recommend this coffee shop to anyone who is looking for a great experience (and great coffee).
Jarod Smith via - Feb 16, 2020
Mammitas is going to be my new coffee shop. The horchata coffee is to die for and Jacqueline (the owner) is a sweetheart. I would 10/10 recommend this place to anyone who likes a warm and inclusive environment. The drinks feel like home in a cup.
Nichole Shaw via - Feb 16, 2020
The owner of the shop is so kind and friendly that her alone deserves 5 stars. But the coffee as well was quite simply superb. I’ll be coming back again for sure ... read more
