Mom's is as the name implies, an older dinner with average food. Not busy but still a wait for service and food. Was under charged on ticket. Pointed out the error and was then over charged! Oh well.

We ate here twice on our stay in Sooke. Both visits were thoroughly enjoyable (Brunch & Lunch). On both visits Service & food were great and substantial, we had an early lunch one day - and that was the only meal we needed that day! Thanks all for a lovely experience!

The pie was huge but overpriced and not great. We were pretty disappointed. Also, it would have been nice to have a refill on the coffee.

Recommended by the hotel we had a real home cooked breakfast and it was great. Good sized portions and lots to choose from, this diner would be an excellent start to anyone's day. They say the pie is awesome as well but we just didn't have room for it.

I can't remember the last time my family and I had to roll out of a restaurant after eating. The amount of food you are given is amazing in our opinion. We ate 2 breakfasts here and was by far the best breakfasts we had during our 10 day trip to BC. The omelette was essentially exploding due to the... More

This is an amazing diner – a true diner. According to the staff this diner has been in existence for 60 years, was upgraded 12 years ago and is still in immaculate condition.
