Fabulous Down Home Fare!!!

Mom's is a great place to go if you're Hungry! We had a breakfast item and a burger with salad. The Breakfast was absolutely wonderful eggs done right (Truly) However the burger was undercooked and obviously pre formed and originally frozen ( a real* shame) the balance of the meal - caesar... read more

Friendly staff, food is diner style but a lot comes from the freezer. They are known for their huge pies! Honestly have to see to believe. Cornmeal fish is good too.

We found this little gem by accident and are glad we did. Friendly staff and locals. Huge meal portions, excellent fries and oh my, the mile high pies! Apple pie consists of 35 to 40 apples per pie, then it's covered in their crust. Meringue pie just as tall filled with more lemon than you'd think possible. Excellent!

My girlfriend and I have been to Mom's twice now. The first time we got there just before noon and missed the breakfast menu. They serve breakfast for most of the day, but after 11:30 it's a reduced menu which still had my favourite on it. Primarily they leave off the pancakes and waffles. The next day we went for... More

Cranberries out of a can, packaged frozen vegetables and turkey roll are not what I call home cooking. What a disappointment!

On a one way street with limited parking closeby. Service is quick. Food choices range from hamburgers, wraps, fish and chips to breakfasts and other lunch fare. Portions are large. The turkey wrap came with a very large salad. Burgers were filling. Apple and lemon merange pie where huge. Interesting paintiongs for sale on the wall. Tip for the owners.... More

Yummy. That sums up this cafe. The food is fresh and not greasy. Large portions and plenty of good coffee. We really enjoyed our breakfasts. My omelet was especially good, so light and fluffy and stuffed with meat. Great home style hash browns too. Would have liked to try the delicious looking pies but we were too full.

I tried the pork (or was it veal?) schniztle and was disappointed. The meat was cut thin and breaded and tough. I should have asked for a steak knife. And put some beef stock in that gravy! I usually love my meals at Mom's but will stick with the baron of beef or the Monte Cristo sandwich, yum! I found... More

We always eat breakfast here when in Sooke. Great service, delicious diner food, best and biggest pies we have ever seen. It's good home cooking. It's a must.
