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. The food is very good and the service is excellent and quick. Portions are generous which made up for the price. Of course, one has to expect... More

The eggs benedict and potato pancakes are excellent - and very large portions! I could have had the half portion and been full. Service is great. We had a very good breakfast here.

My hubby and I took a quick getaway before the hussle and bustle of back to school started and had breakfast at Mom's Cafe both mornings of our stay. The food was great and plentiful, the coffee was really good, and the service was top notch. The girls up front really hussle and the kitchen staff do too. Very comfortable... More

The menu is amazing - you can order anything here. This is an excellent alternative to fine dining. Great for a beer and a burger or fish and chips. Expect a lot of food.

This is a diner style restaurant. The staff were friendly and the portions served were huge!! The decor was dated and certainly not fancy which was part of its charm. I would have loved to have had room for dessert. The pies looked fantastic. The halibut and chips and the salmon and chips were both awesome.

Great food but you must leave room for the lemon merangue pie. Super friendly staff accompany good portions. Salmon corn chowder soup is a fantastic. Don't go through Sooke without stopping in this unassuming place.
