Cute little restaurant! Excellent food at a reasonable price. Good service, the waitress we had was so helpful and a delight to interact with. The art on the wall was interesting and available for purchase.

Mom's is a pleasantly simple diner that doesn't do anything too crazy or unexpected. You can get solid sandwiches and burgers, and entrees and pastas after 4pm. It's refreshing sometimes to go somewhere and just get some solid, dependable food with good service. The highlight...More

This place is tucked away on a little side street in a little building so you have to look for it if you are new to town like we were, but worth the search. After a couple of locals recommended Mom's for lunch we decided...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.
