Been here many times and have never been disappointed. Portions are large and tasty and then there's the awesome pies! Pic shows how they "build" their apple pie.

Mom’s has been in Sooke forever and locals love it. My husband had meat loaf with all the trimmings and I enjoyed fish and chips (halibut). Both meals delicious. They also serve mile high home made pies!

I've been to Mom's a couple of times, and always been happy with the good portions, well cooked. The staff are awesome, and really engaged with the community - helping out each other as well as being super friendly to everyone visiting Sooke

Went with a large group shortly before closing. Food menu was surprisingly broad for a diner, but service was friendly, food was tasty, and the pies were tallest I've ever seen (seriously, a slice of apple pie stood a good 5 inches tall!) though not...More

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.
