Sweet Mama’s original Northport location is a pleasant step-back in time. It’s all about Nostalgia. From the moment we entered and saw the 50’s-60’s decor, I was recalling my youth. Wooden floors, booths, tables and full-height counter covered with vinyl, addedd to my feelings.
It is unfortunate that this venue, where “comfort food lives…” (web) is not handicapped-accessible. There are two, stone steps to get to the double-doors, and another low step through the doors to the large waiting area. The narrow, single-occupancy restrooms are not handicapped acessible either, although there is a handrail on one wall. Navigating to the booths and tables is doable, some areas are easier to access than others. If you can manage these things, we definitely think Sweet Mama’s is a place to try.
Mama’s was great for our late lunch on a Saturday afternoon. Besides the decor evoking nostalgia, the menu does as well. Comfort food, does indeed, seem to live here. Just looking at the menu says it all. From great breakfast choices, to mac and cheese, meatloaf, southern fried chicken, shakes and ice cream sodas, the past is here for the tasting. Our server was delightful and got everything right. Each of our choices was delicious. Pots of coffee left on our table were a treat.
As always, we at Destination Accessible advise you to check a venue’s website, www.sweetmamasli.com, when planning a visit, to “know before you go.”
