One cannot pass through Sooke, visiting or living in Sooke without trying Mom's Cafe. It's delightful as a retro 50's cafe and has a lot of old collector item conversation pieces. It can be a bit loud since its renovations several years back now that...More

Bring an appetite and come early. This hole in the wall is best in town & everyone knows it. Prepare to wait to get a seat as a lot of singles take up 4 seat booths. It’s worth the wait for the food quality.

This place seems okay until you get your bill. Menu is decent for this style of restaurant, however be aware that they upsale you gravy for your fries and then charge $3.50 per serving for bland gravy to go with a $12 burger platter. $3.50...More

We enjoy Mom's Cafe and have been several times recently. The food is good, portions are fair, the staff are friendly and the prices are pretty fair. We also like the "diner" experience.

We arrived at Mom's Cafe just before 11:00am. 1 couple in line before us, they were seated and no one ever inquired about us. We stood and waited and the person would only take the attention of people walking up to pay their cheque. So...More

The resto was quite busy - to our surprise there were no desserts that day due to the family-day holiday. One guest wanted a turkey club but was told there was no turkey - she ended up with a grilled cheese - we ordered 2...More

Definitely not what it once was - young staff just going through the motions and more interested in each other than the customers and food was mediocre. Pies are great but that’s about it. Not going back as we were here 4 years ago and...More

Got take out to eat in our hotel. Staff were very kind and food was made fast. The salmon chowder was good; the rest of the food we got (poutine and a mandarin chicken salad) was pretty average diner food, not necessarily homemade.

They have been open for over thirty five years that I know of. It is an old building and looks like a 1960 style place. They have a nice old juke box at the entrance. Contact them for exact opening date.
