- Mama's Cafe's new design will be based on a gas station-turned-cafe aesthetic.
According to the restaurant’s website, Cappy Lawton opened Mama’s Cafe in 1981 and operated it until 1988. In December of last year, the Lawton family regained ownership of Mama’s and began renovations on the space located at 2442 Nacogdoches Road.
Renovations include the addition of a nearly 1,250 square foot outdoor dining space, as well as updated neon signs and interior space.
The Lawtons told MySA the new iteration of the longtime cafe will not completely lose the original feel, but the new design will be based on a gas station-turned-cafe aesthetic.
The family has not shared a concrete opening date.
