Good Food is Here...

On a Sunday evening, our choices for supper, was limited. We found Mom's to fit our hunger. It is a blast from the past, as the menu items reminded you of Gram's kitchen. Very tasty down home cooking. The highlight had to be the desserts. The mile high (literally) apple pie was enjoyed by our... read more

We were on our way to Sheringham Point Lighthouse and stopped for breakfast on our drive from Victoria. We both had breakfast burritos. Mine had sausage. My friend's had roasted red peppers. Both came with about 2 servings of sautéed & seasoned red potatoes. The entries on the menu were clever like the afore mentioned waffle logger. Paintings & witty... More

After a whole day of beach visits in Sooke we, a party of 18, arrived at this restaurant. PRO: We already made a reservation a week ahead so they are able to accommodate. The menu offers many choices and the waitress is able to accommodate minor changes to the menu which is nice. The ingredients are fresh and everything came... More

Food was great. But $70 for a light dinner (burgers etc) for 2 adults and 2 kids? That's a lot. Drinks were $2.75 each I think. For pop?

This place is a must-visit. Arborite tables, mile-high pies, huge servings. The food was delicious and the place was packed. No surprise!

We ate here twice while in Sooke for our sons wedding, very good food at good prices, coming from England we were surprised at the amount of food we were served and the constant topping up of our coffee cups, we get charged for each cup here, no free refills.

Our server was accommodating. We had read other reviews and decided to start with pie and not risk disappointment! Great plan! After the huge pie we had a huge breakfast! It was delicious. Options for the meat and non meat eaters. A very clean establishment.

We went to MOM's Café in the centre of sooke. which is a Rock'n Roll Style café - restaurant, from the early 1960's, which has not changed very much. The food is excellent, simple and we are always going there when we are in this neck of the woods so to speak.

Mom's Cafe was recommended to us by a Sooke local and she did not steer us wrong - the food was delicious and the waitstaff was very friendly and attentive. Only thing that was a little off-putting at first was a bit of an odor in the back area where we were seated. However, it's an old wood building with... More
