“Local Flavor”
Reviewed 5 June 2013 via mobile

I agree with the good reviews posted already. I would add that as a non-coffee drinker who loves the coffeehouse atmosphere & has coffee-loving friends, I appreciate that they offer wonderful hot teas...in dignified tea pots!

“Yum!”
Reviewed 19 May 2013

Great quality coffee! My husband had the white chocolate smoothie, oh my! I was jealous of his drink even though mine was great too. This place is Christian based business and has some great gifts that support women in developing countries. They also must support an orphanage because on the walls it says something about coffee for orphans. Very nice employees and fun atmosphere.

“Great coffee, friendly atmosphere!”
Reviewed 21 November 2011

For coffee snobs, tastes in coffee vary widely. I might be considered one of those snobs, because I REALLY like a good cup of coffee. Popular choices in Fayetteville include the ubiquitous Starbucks and local Arsaga's, both good. But to my tastes, the best coffee in Fayetteville (my hometown) is found at Mama Carmen's on N. College across from Shake's.

Mama Carmen's imports its own beans through it association with some local agricultural experts who really know and appreciate good coffee. They roast and grind fresh onsite. But perhaps what makes the biggest difference at Mama Carmen's is the caring attitude of everyone who works there. They are on-a-mission to spread the word about the good work of Mama Carmen, herself, as she cares for children in Honduras -- and every cup of coffee helps the work she does. This fact seems to make the coffee taste a little better.

Perhaps its this knowledge or perhaps its the fast, free internet service -- but there's also a friendly atmosphere among customers at Mama Carmen's that is always contagious and encouraging. All in all, a great coffee shop.
