Great value for money in Mom's Cafe, it's not possible to leave the place hungry. Staff are always friendly and polite, such a welcoming atmosphere.

Nothing to dislike about Mom's (although some may try). Combine good food with generous portions, add a smile and friendly service and I think I'm in Mayberry (may have dated myself). Quick, somebody pinch me! Traveled as a group of four and stopped in for a bite (based on the number of locals inside). Between the four of us, had... More

Mom's is big portions of good wholesome food. Comfy booths to sit in, great service, 'all you can eat fish & chips' on Wednesdays! Relax in a homey atmosphere. PIES to die for!! All made in house. Worth the visit!

Friendly staff with a varied menu. Breakfast was very good. Very much home cooking in what was an old diner. This place is very well known in town and frequented by the locals.

We had to line up to get a table at this little café but it was worth the wait. We enjoyed what turned out to be an enormous breakfast that would have satisfied a lumberjack! Good value, good meal.

We were travelling through Sooke today and ended up staying because of snow this afternoon. Decided to have dinner here after looking through the reviews, and were not disappointed. As we walked in a number of diners were leaving. Each one had a number of take out containers, and they were not take out meals. Plates were very full as... More

Mom's Cafe proudly offers its community a good old fashioned mum & pop shop experience to remind us that life isn't quite yet all starbucks and hybrid cars. No frills, no fancy dining room, but a real life rural sit down joint that people line up for every weekend. And line up they do... be prepared to wait if you... More

Great food and service, starting to become regulars! Anytime of day the food is great! Large portions, friendly service and down home cooking. The place is very very clean, you can also see in the kitchen from the order window and most definitely clean is as important as yummy! Morning breakfast is great, meatloaf is delicious.....ok enough said....off I go... More

We went for breakfast and it was great, exhibiting a down home feel just like my own Mom used to make. The bacon was crispy, the eggs were over easy and unbroken, the hash browns were made properly (not that shredded crap). Service was great also, along with the coffee.

We have eaten lunch here before but this time we came for breakfast. We were disappointed. The eggs Benny were done OK but the rest of the plate was very disappointing. Would go again for lunch but for breakfast I will make my choices as plain as possible
