Great food, snappy service!

Mom's looks like a diner from the 50's inside! The food is tasty and the service attentive and fast (even though it was very busy). We had lunch, look forward to trying breakfast next time.

We recently enjoyed breakfast at Mom's Cafe. Wow it was terrific! I enjoyed the July breakfast special, chorizo eggs, potatoes and cheese. Huge portion and very tasty. My wife enjoyed an omelet which she enjoyed very much. Huge portions, we took some home and enjoyed both for breakfast the next morning. Service was kind, courteous, and especially welcoming and spot... More

Usually my wife and I, while traveling and staying in one place (like Sooke) for several days,we try to sample as many restaurants as possible.But the food,the ambience and the service at "Mom's" were so good,that we returned many times for either breakfast,lunch or dinner.In a world full of brass outfitted bistros and generic chain restaurants,a visit to "Mom's" is...

mom's cafe was recommended by our hosts in Sooke, for breakfast mainly. It was a great place to eat lunch before heading back home! It seems all quite typical american to me, meaning lots of eggs and bacon, we had a huuuge salad (I took half of it home) with garlic bread, bacon and everything that belongs on top of... More

We thought we'd give this place a try after 5 years ago receiving blah food for a hefty price. I was disappointed once again. When I received my breakfast, I was disgusted by the distinct flavour of margarine in their 'homemade' Hollandaise. I don't eat margarine at home, and certainly would never expect to find it on a half order... More

Very large portions and good food. The soup varieties change each day and are very good. A favorite is the egg benedict.

I wouldn't rush back to eat . Ate there because of Diners & Dives. Cinnamon bun was not home cooked there and not that fresh, salmon eggs benny were pretty good most of the salmon cooked to well.

Enjoyed breakfast. The French toast is huge. The pancakes delicious. The service is ok -- I have a pet peeve about servers handing dishes over other diners even when there is space to walk around. Fruit juice is expensive. The bathroom desperately needs a good scrubbing. The back room can get noisy.

Great food from a out of the way place. So many items I wanted to try. I played it safe for the first time. Food and service were enjoyable. People seemed to enjoy working at Mom's Cafe and it shows. We returned four hours after our first trip and got pie. We got back to our room and we had... More
