Wow! This place is must visit, for either breakfast, lunch, dinner or even just for dessert of one of their many pies or cheesecakes. We visited on the Easter weekend Saturday for late breakfast and it was well worth the short wait! These two servers were running the show up front on their own, I was incredibly impressed with their... More

Would never go back, $3.50 for a tiny side of gravy??!! Excellent service and very friendly staff however - feel like you are visiting old friends but sadly food is like the quality you get from the freezer aisle in a grocery store :/ Sorry, really really was hoping this review would be different.

We're new in this region and popped into Mom's Cafe. The place was packed which is a testament to good comfort foods and decent prices. We had breakfast here twice in the past 4 months and both visits were very pleasant and enjoyable. The staff is particularly good. Will be back.

Mom's has flexible menu and my Celiac wife can eat here. Staff point out that the food is gluten friendly, but the kitchen is also used for all other preparation.

We went for breakfast and liked. it so much came back for dinner the same night. Portions are large. Staff are very friendly and engaging. If you have a large appetite save room for a piece of pie. They are massive.

Large portions - well rounded menu - excellent service - easy to find and lots of parking. Lunch time is very busy so the may be a short wait.

I had a liver and onions meal, The liver was overcooked and dry, my friend had a salad with chicken salad was good, but the chicken was dry. Most of the complaints at our table of 6 was about the meat, over cooked and or... More

We had a late supper here of fish and chips. Very good fish and large pieces. Service was good. Next time we would go earlier as they were cleaning up the restaurant when we were eating.

Wow! Pretty much sums it up. Ordered cod and chips this time and as usual was blown away by the size of the meal. The fish was huge and done to perfection. I have been coming to Mom's Cafe for years and it never ceases to amaze me. Definitely worth the drive to Sooke to check this gem out! Thanks... More
