Being from NJ I am used to going to diners for a healthy, filling meal. Mom's does not disappoint. It is a casual, clean, friendly and well run eating establishment hidden in Oakland Park just a block west of Federal Hwy and 3 blocks south of Holy Cross Hospital. I have had breakfast and lunch here several times (as I... More

My husband and I had breakfast here and enjoyed our morning. The price was good for the food. We enjoyed it and may be back while on our trip. The coffee hit the spot and the biscuits were great with big sausage chucks.

This restaurant has been in business for over 25 years so they must be doing something right. Again basically deli food but good for breakfast or lunch. The staff are friendly and while the restaurant is a bit out of the way and probably off the tourist map it is well worth a visit.

Great little neighborhood place for breakfast. Six of us went on a Sunday morning and the place was packed. They were short handed and the girls were running around like crazy. They missed my breakfast and we couldn't get anyone's attention. Everyone else had a great breakfast. I would try them again.

I have lived in the area for 23 years and this is the first time I have been here. When I used to work close by, some of my employees would go here and tell me how great it was. Not sure why I never came. Today me and my partner had breakfast. The place was packed but their turnover... More

Mom's is not a fancy restaurant. Reminds me of a diner. However, the service is good, portions are decent, and good tasting food served hot. Prices are very resonable.

Just do not understand all the high ratings for this place. We've been a few times for breakfast and lunch and each time we have found everything to tasteless and of very poor quality. Ham rubbery and tasteless. Coffee is just awful. Service can be surly or nice. Portions are large. Always crowded. If you like quality food look elsewhere.

Probably the best service we had in Fort Lauderdale, super speedy and responsive team, food was excellent. Great retro decor, really enjoyed it here for a traditional US diner experience
