“Great little fifties-style dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 March 2014

Nothing to dislike about Mom's (although some may try). Combine good food with generous portions, add a smile and friendly service and I think I'm in Mayberry (may have dated myself). Quick, somebody pinch me! Traveled as a group of four and stopped in for a bite (based on the number of locals inside). Between the four of us, had breakfast and lunch at one sitting. No complaints, in fact, everyone thought their meal was great! No room for pie, so came back the next day. Unbelievable! Check out the size of the apple (they say there are 40 apples sliced in one pie) and lemon meringue (13 egg whites in this puppy) pie. Tasted as good as it looked. Must have been a glutton for punishment, as we came back Wednesday night for the "all you can eat" cod and chips for $11.95 WOW! Overall, nothing fancy just good food. Price range: $-$$

“Memorable little restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2014

Mom's is big portions of good wholesome food. Comfy booths to sit in, great service, 'all you can eat fish & chips' on Wednesdays! Relax in a homey atmosphere. PIES to die for!! All made in house. Worth the visit!

“An old fashioned diner renewed”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2014

Friendly staff with a varied menu. Breakfast was very good. Very much home cooking in what was an old diner. This place is very well known in town and frequented by the locals.

“Huge Breakfast!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2014

We had to line up to get a table at this little café but it was worth the wait. We enjoyed what turned out to be an enormous breakfast that would have satisfied a lumberjack! Good value, good meal.

“Great Diner Great Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 February 2014

We were travelling through Sooke today and ended up staying because of snow this afternoon. Decided to have dinner here after looking through the reviews, and were not disappointed. As we walked in a number of diners were leaving. Each one had a number of take out containers, and they were not take out meals. Plates were very full as they were being delivered to the tables, and it was easy to see why people were taking leftovers home. The décor is reminiscent of a sixties diner, but it was clean and bright. The staff were pleasant, and obviously enjoyed their jobs and the patrons. It is worth looking for this restaurant and you will not be disappointed.
