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.

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.
