BETTER than my mom's cooking!

Very friendly service & excellent 'comfort' food. Don't come here if you're trying to sustain your diet. Throw caution to the winds & order the fish & chips, followed by a huge slice of Mom's apple pie. With whipped cream. Real whipped cream.

I came here for breakfast and it was pretty average. The service was good and the diner was clean and quiet, however the food was poor.

Ever been to a sorority house? Neither have I but, now I can pretend like I did! Visiting the restaurant has left a sour taste in my mouth, and it wasn't the food. Wife and I ordered some sort of special sandwich that I assume was a tuna-like-sandwich but with chicken. Tasted pretty good. Good for a quick bite. However,... More

We have been here now 3x. The first time food was great, service was horrible. Second time my burger was ok my wife's tasted off. Again sub par service. Third time my beef dip tasted so bad I began to gag. Service again was brutal. Was discounted 50% for the beef dip. After traveling the world and tasting food on... More

I am always on the lookout for a Mom's, a Granny's, or Bud's Cafe, with a calendar for art on the walls,and great home cooking on the menu. This place is the real deal. Have a piece of pie, at least.

We've eaten at Mom's Cafe for years, even before we moved to Sooke. The service and meals have always been good, save for the odd period that it was lumpy. Tonight's dinner was terrible from start to finish. When we walked in, the waitress said to take a table in the back so we did. We sat down at a... More

Just a very friendly and down to earth place in the middle of town. Nothing fancy, huge breakfasts, daily specials, and 100% service. Huge portions all around and great value.

This is a terrific lunch place. Friendly diner atmosphere, extensive menu, and sky-high pies. Our meals were fresh, plentiful, and tasty. Service was friendly and speedy.
