Found this place while in IA City for an appointment. Everything was amazing! The girl who was working (owner's daughter?) was so friendly and helpful! We ordered the iced horchata lattes with oat milk and they were so good! For food we tried the Cuban sandwich and pan tostado con jamón y queso ( toasted ham and cheese). Both are ama ... read more

All around great experience! Impressive family run establishment that clearly knows what it is doing. We stumbled across Mammitas by chance and so glad we did. The staff could not have been more friendly and inviting. To top it off the coffee and food were absolutely incredible. Highly recommend!

Delicious guava pastry! I ordered the dulce de leche latte but they actually made me horchata latte. The horchata latte was so delicious I didn’t mind getting the wrong one! The shop is super cute with a nice little fireplace and tv. Will definitely be back.

The coffee was delicious, the baked sweets were delicious, and the chorizo breakfast burrito and that homemade salsa were out of this world perfect. Great size and portions, and can not say enough about the quality of service and friendliest owners and staff overall. Stop in for a horchata latte and traditional pastry (and chorizo br ... read more

In the warmer months I love taking visiting friends out for lunch in their backyard/patio. Always a hit. The burritos are so good too! Delicious, huge, and super satisfying.

Update: I'm eating the Cuban burrito again. This time I got a photo. It's huge and so flavorful. Skip pancheros and Chipotle and eat this! Yummmmm! The Cuban burrito is magical. I intended to take a picture of it, but it was so good that I ate it so fast a picture was not possible. The guava pastry is also magical!

I'm pretty sure the woman who laughed at me as I ate my tres leches as an appetizer was the owner. I hope she was.

WOWOWOWOW 10/10 Im so grateful that I listened to the reviews!! This spot was so good. Made a stop in Iowa City while on a road trip. The place is so cute and warm but amazing customer service. It's family owned and the food is 10/10. The chorizo burrito is a must AND the guava pastries. They're their family recipe and we ordered 10!

I love this place. I was visiting Iowa City from Brooklyn, NY with a band and just happened to walk past and decided to stop in.

Great morning coffee stop, the light roast (Rainforest) is my favorite. For lunch, eating their Cubano sandwich is as pleasurable as listening to Ibrahim Ferrer sing. The patio is open in decent weather and hasn't been crowded in my experience. It's around the side of the building, easy to miss.

This place deserves ALL the praise. When you're in need of a treat combined with a coffee, look no further than the horchata and espresso - it comes in frappe, iced or hot combo!
