Greeted w/ a smile and seated quickly. Order taken quickly and drinks arrived right away. So far so good......I had the "Chicken Little" omelette; very tasty! ( Chicken apple sausage, grilled yellow onion, spinach mozzarella cheese and pesto.) I skipped the potatoes and ordered fresh fruit for a $2 up charge; so worth it!! My dining companion ordered biscuits and... More

Mom's is a wonderful addition to the culinary fare in Chico. They do a great breakfast and utilize mostly locally sourced ingredients. I have become a big fan of the lunch and especially their roast beef dip sandwich with fries. The au jus is so rich and incredible and the portion of beef is very generous. My wife and I... More

Although we both went to college at Cal State, Chico we rarely get back for visits so this was a special stop for brunch. Mom's is a warm, comfortable cafe serving some of the best brunch items we've ever had. The corned beef hash over potatoes with melting Swiss cheese was fantastic as was the eggs Benedict with delicious hollandaise... More

The food is pretty great at Mom's but the service is soooooo slow. There always seems to be a ton of people working but food,drinks, bill, always take too long to get.

I had been to Mom's for breakfast several years ago and thought .... meh. So it was my kid's 21st birthday and she couldn't wait to order her first cocktail and if it were up to her we would have gone at 7:00 a.m. but 11:00 we went and the place was packed. Its neat, bustling place, resembling a larger... More

I went to Chico for a class. When I asked the instructor for a great breakfast joint, he said Mom's and one other place were the best in town. I went to Mom's and found it to be WAY above average for a place serving breakfast. The ambiance was warm and cozy, which is a Really Good Thing on a... More

So we heard that Mom's just began serving dinner. Three of us has the yellowtail and one had the fried chicken. It was really delicious! Sorry to say, but those of us that ate the yellowtail had digestive problems that night...if you know what I mean :( Maybe the fish just wasn't as fresh as it should have been. We'll... More

First time at Mom's two weeks ago. We were a large group, 9 people on a Sunday morning. Staff was friendly and willing to substitute items. Food was great. Everybody at our table enjoyed their meal. We will all definitely be back! On the way to the restroom is a display of ladies/moms cologne bottles. I have to say I... More

Our son goes to Chico State and looks forward to parent visits for good food as well as seeing us. On this last trip, he asked to go to Mom's Restaurant for brunch. The line out front the day before clued us in to this eatery's popularity. When we arrived for brunch, the line was less than the day before.... More

I have been visiting Mom's over the years when in Chico visiting family. It is a great family restaurant. Large portions of tasty old fashioned home cooking is the best way I can describe the food here. Anytime of the day that you go there, your going to get something tasty. I highly recommend Mom's for a meal when your... More
