Notes: Mammy's Restaurant was located in Atlantic City at Boardwalk and Pennsylvania Ave. at the entrance to Steeplechase Pier. Elia Lasker Tendler, wife of the famous left-handed boxer Lew Tendler, operated Mammy's. The Tendlers also owned Lew Tendler's restaurants in Atlantic City and Philadelphia. Mammy's Restaurant was most famous for donuts and waffles. The boardwalk-facing window allowed people to see the mechanized production of donuts being fried and sugared and then served to patrons in the restaurant or offered as take out. Mammy's served Boscul coffee, a brand which originated in Camden, N.J. The restaurant closed in the late 1970s.
