Local Comfort Food

When my husband and I travel, we like to eat our meals at the local restaurants, rather than the big chain restaurants. The staff at the Super 8 motel, suggested Mom's Café, in downtown Salinas. We got there about 5:00 PM for dinner and there were a few older couples in the restaurant. We ordered... read more

We got in at 20:00 and asked if we could still get a dinner. The waitress was really cranky but told us there was still dinner available. She looked like she rather wanted to go home. We ordered medium-rare steaks and the veal. The steaks were burned and verryy well done. The fries were swimming in fat and tasteless. The... More

Mom's Café was recommended by the staff at the Super 8 motel. Food was good and we enjoyed the small town atmosphere.

As a foreign tourist I loved the authenticity of this place, Don't expect high quality restaurant food but why should you, the name says it all, this is home style cooking. What it lacks in quality it makes up for in quantity, a fabulous place for a foreign tourist to experience an old fashioned Mom & Pop style eatery

Nice, little local place with good home town cooking - just like mom used to make. Food was tasty and plentiful. Nice menu variety and reasonably priced - they also had a senior menu. About a mile from I-70, but worth the drive. Would recommend.

We stopped here for a late breakfast. It was recommended by our motel owner. I can only give it an okay. My friend's pork chop breakfast had a pork chop that was so overcooked that he had to saw at it with a steak knife My breakfast burrito was alright but nothing out of the ordinary at all. As I...

My Husband and I stayed in Salina a few days. Mom's Café was recommended as a good place to eat. It took us 40 minutes to get a Turkey, Bacon and Avocado sandwich. The bread was hard. The turkey and avocado had no taste and the bacon was hard and old. My husband told the owner about it. Her comment... More

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, plenty of gravy, and corn. The amazing thing... 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.
