Oh, Mamma! This place was an incredible find for a traveling Chef finding himself in the South Bend area. These ladies made me look like a hero at a corporate event for 60 people. The quality of product and service are absolutely at top of game. They perfectly pre-cut the cheeses and sliced all of the meats. Everything was set up for me to make an awesome display. Also included was a delightfully curated selection of bread, condiments, and olives. Oh, and on both of my visits, they wouldn't let me leave without a sandwich, just like Mamma.

Best sandwich ever. The ladies working the counter we very nice & educated us on the cheeses and the meats. Very great experience!

Knowledgeable about their meats and cheeses. Their pricing is fair to good, slightly below average from the places I've been. It's still pretty easy to drop 50-75 bucks in about 5 minutes. Well worth it. If you are a foodie in south bend, I've no doubt you will find something to please your taste buds here.This goat cheese chèvre and some crusty bread really is my go-to... everything else is just bonus.

I'm not sure there has ever been a more accurate business name ... If you have never visited Oh Momma's on the Avenue, you are missing out! The 'dealer's choice ' individually curated sandwich is OUT OF THIS WORLD. Selected meats, cheese and fixings to your taste based on a questions about your individual tastes. Best sandwich ever. And the owner is a great teacher about the magic of cheese and reccoem dations on hownto maximize the flavor!

Stopped here on a whim on a Friday afternoon. What a find! Enjoyed the tasty three cheese panini and the woman behind the counter who treated us like old friends. So welcoming and so helpful! Samples lead to purchases and a charcuterie spread back home.

This was such a wonderful visit and surprise for me!! I was in the area for a work thing needed to pick up a quick lunch so came to yelp and asked what's near me! This place popped up, I love all cheese so thought why not it was close and they serve sandwiches. Went in and was blown away by the amount of cheese to pick from. The owner was amazing and so sweet. She explained the different cheeses to me and I decided on the triple cheese grilled to a perfect toasty perfection all melty and warm with the best buttery soft but crunchy homemade bread. Also sampled a couple of signature cheeses goat and cow bought both of them. They were both delicious and I knew they needed to come home with me also I couldn't pick which one I loved better so bought them both. The shop stocks a varied supply of must haves and need to try items! Worth a drive to this gem I definitely will return often!

My wife and I were on a road-trip that brought us through Indiana, so obviously we had to stop by South Bend to see where the most overrated college football team plays. After visiting the beautiful campus of Notre Dame and before heading to our next destination, we stopped by Oh Mamma's and it was by far our best experience in Indiana. Delicious food, great customer service, cute ambiance, and decent prices. If we ever find ourselves in Indiana again we will definitely make it a point to stop by Oh Mama's.

Staff was very welcoming and took the time to answer any questions I had. I ordered the daily special and it was hands down some of the best food I've had in this town. The staff are passionate about what they do and it shows in the taste. Great place to pick up some meats and cheeses to boot.

We came here a few years ago with the team and I wanted to come back this trip. AGAIN everyone was amazed. I had the Italian (many ordered the same) most of the rest had the 3 cheese. One athlete said their peach jam was the holy grail. The Italian with the giardenia was PERFECT!

Great sandwiches made with quality meats, cheese, and bread! The owner was so nice, helped us choose our lunch, and let us sample some of the great deli meats and cheeses around the shop. A worthwhile stop!


Great assortment of imported and local meat. THEY MAKE THEIR OWN CHEESE. And it's delicious! It's almost like our little Italian grocery store back home. They make Italian sandwiches too.

One of the best places in Michiana! Whether you’re picking up a party plate or platter, stopping by for a quick sandwich or exploring the varieties of meats and cheese, the staff is always ready to answer any questions. They’re incredibly helpful, courteous and knowledgeable about the items they sell. If you haven’t been here yet, you are missing out!

A wonderful Italian market for us Jersey Italians! Terrific spot with sandwiches to order and a number of delicious Italian a la carte items.

It's been almost a month after my visit to Oh Mamma's, and I can't stop thinking about the mild Farmhouse sub I enjoyed for lunch. This is an adorable meat/cheese shop right around the corner from the year-round South Bend Farmers Market. You can't miss it with the new colorful mural by local artist Alex Ann Allen! Our group pre-ordered sandwiches for a picnic, and the staff graciously allowed us to pick them up about 15 minutes before they officially opened for the day. We had placed our order the day before via phone, and it was easy peasy. The Farmhouse sub doesn't have meat, but it still stands out to me as one of the best deli sandwiches I've ever had. Comes with fresh cheese and vegetables, and it was so flavorful and filling, I didn't miss meat one bit. I've also heard this is a great spot to pick up charcuterie boards to impress friends and family for special events.

I travel extensively, a medical professional, and have been to 36 states. Raised in Sicily, with Sicilians parents, this place would meet my mothers approval!! I stop here weekly to grab cannoli, and other assorted goods. I am especially fond of the cheeses that are sold here. The staff is AMAZING!!! You have a question about a certain cheese, they have the answer. Lauren & Howard always are a pleasure, and I respect their suggestions!! If you have not stopped in here, it's a MUST!!!
