Don't skip the scone!

Mom’s Café, on the main crossroads in town, was in an 1887 building. It attracted locals, coal workers, and travelers like ourselves. We both had lunch platters that came with navy bean soup and scones. He had a chicken fried steak and I had chicken fingers. They were served with mashed potatoes... read more

Great pancakes and coffee. Don't pass this place by without at least trying the scones! Worth the quick detour to bypass Denny's.

While on a motorcycle trip with another couple three days ago, our unanimous choice for breakfast was Mom's! We all love this historical eatery. The memorabilia on the walls will keep you busy for the short time it will take to get your order. The service is great and the food will bring you back when you're in the area.... More

Great home style cooking. Mom's is an institution in this part of Utah and should not be missed by anyone traveling through the area

This was a cute downtown old fashioned restaurant with typical food offerings that were well done. If you want a respite from the chains, this is a good one. It's in downtown Selina, not far from interstate 70 on the way to Vegas.

Read about this local restaurant so went there for dinner on our road trip through Utah. Food was good. Enjoy eating at local places. They advertise scones as a specialty. These are not your typical scone. They are more like fried bread we have had in other places.

This is my 2nd visit here. Great breakfast and the scone (not like a bakery scone) is awesome. It's nice to eat at a place like this rather than your usual chain restaurant.

I used to love the burgers at Mom's Cafe but something changed this last time I was there. They have new buns which were ok but I would guess they changed the patties they use as this one was dry and tasteless. Ordered the Chicken soup that used to have amazing dumplings yet this time not a single dumpling. Too... More

My daughter said that the chicken noodle and dumpling soup was "AMAZING". The waitress recommended the scones and honey butter. It was delicious!

I find it hard to believe that Mom's ranks lower than "Denny's" on trip adviser. We travel a lot by auto and like to find "hometown" restaurants whenever possible. Mom's is one of our all time favorites. Breakfast if outstanding, the service was 'owner operated attentive. And get a piece of homemade pie to go when you leave.
