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.

We don't really eat at diners but the food at this one was very good. Not greasy at all. I had an omelette and it had such great vegetables. Very good food. The server serving us was decent but was clearly having a bad day or just hates her job?

Our group of six had lunch here. All the adults had the seafood chowder which was excellent! Others had salads, burgers etc. The food was great. The service was excellent and accommodating. The decor was slightly rustic but heck, it is called Mom's Cafe! This is clearly a favourite with the Sooke locals which is a good sign. I would... More

When we asked people in Sooke where to get the best fish and chips, we were told of Mom's Café. Not only did they have delicious and generous portions of fish and chips, but also poutine, which my husband considers a 'must have' when in Canada. we were very well satisfied with our meal and followed it with strawberry-rhubarb pie....

Read great reviews but was just ok. Good prices but fish was a little over cooked with fish and chips. Sesame Chicken Salad was drowning in dressing Good service and beer Didn't try the pie

Pies are delicious! But unfortunately the food is not very good- frozen vegetables, boxed mashed potatoes, overdone mushy pasta. Would go back for pie, but not a meal. Service was good- waitresses very friendly.

On our way to embark on the West Coast Trail, we stopped at Mom's to load up on high energy food. The atmosphere was fantastic and the service was excellent. A perfect place to stop.

We visited Mom's while in Sooke. Service was very friendly (although they probably cold have used one more server) and the food "down home". Good salads, sandwiches and the burgers and wraps are huge. The draw here are the homemade pies for dessert - we were very disappointed that they were out of lemon meringue pie during our visit (they... More

Stopped at this restaurant a recommendation. The food was fantastic. As soon as we walked they had two beautiful fresh made Blackberry pies sitting on the shelf. We definitely wanted a piece only to find out that they can't serve it until the eying when the pies set up. Sucks to be us. Blackberries are in season too disappointed but... More
