I love Mom's! The food is simple and delicious. The bacon is extra crispy. I think they must put a press on it when they cook it. Service is alway great. Remember...cash only and leave your phone in the car!

Mom's has fast, no nonsense service. These are local people catering to locals, but once they get to know you, it's just like going over to your friends "Mom's" house for breakfast or lunch. Great coffee, and very yummy breakfasts...ALWAYS HOT which I appreciate.

I had heard some good things so thought we would give it a chance. But it was just disappointing. The service was surly and the food was like "mom-is-having-a-bad-day" food. Skip it and go to a diner in Flemington or head on to Lambertville.

Great breakfast choices. A little pricey but home made, fresh, and very tasty. Good coffee, too. Blueberry pancakes were delicious. We also had smoked salmon eggs Benedict and poached eggs over grilled cheese& bacon.

Breakfast is one of our favourite meals to eat out, so we're always on the lookout for a new spot. How delighted we were to find Mothers right in Ringoes. A quaint kitschy breakfast spot, tiny, with sweet decor. Felt very neighbourhood-centric, not unfriendly but we felt a bit like outsiders. We'll simply just have to go back a few... More

A cozy family owned restaurant for breakfast and lunch. Very creative menu items, check out the board at the entrance for the daily specials.

it has been many, many years since visiting Mom's, but was in the area and thought I would give it a try....Food was just OK....service a little on the slow side...and the prices were a little on the high side for the type of food served.....place really hasn't changed much over the years, it was good to revisit...but it might...

This restaurant is an institution in Hunterdon County, NJ. Packed on weekends and an extensive menu. There was a "Mom" and family members still involved. The food delish - best stuffed French toasts - try raspberry cream cheese stuffed toast topped w/raspberry syrup and whipped cream or some of their Mexican breakfast dishes w/a side order of scrapple. Staff always come by to check on your status and see if you'd like a refill of coffee of the like. They're happy to have you and it's at the crossroads of John Ringo and Old York Road!
