Mom’s Kitchen is a hidden treasure. No browns in and out of our Western Omelette - eggs perfect - temperature and presentation

Although they were out of a few things on my visit, they make up with the good quality of food. Best place to eat if your waiting on your car to get fixed or smogged it's walking distance from an auto repair.

We had lunch at Mom's on a recommendation and found the experience to be extremely delightful. Good food, friendly staff, and the "Moms Picture Displays" on the walls were fascinating. A clean, wholesome environment and a great menu.

First of all the owner has little to no interest in his own food. The food isn't fresh, it isn't good and I will not be back. It's disappointing to find a local business I cAnt support. Close your doors and move on friend. Breakfast is not you "jam"

This little spot is one of my favorites. Homey and yummy! The food is great. (The scrambled eggs, potatoes, and pancakes are my favorite!) The owner, Mike, is a sweetheart. Well worth a visit!

What a find! Tried the early bird special (before 9am). I chose 1 egg, bacon, hash browns for $4. Everything cooked perfectly. Came hot. Server was friendly, cheery, helpful. There are tons of pictures of moms on the walls.

The best breakfast ever! I ordered the chicken fried steak and eggs. It's the best and I don't even like chicken fries streak. Will be back.

Delicious food, tasty coffee, hearty portions, reasonable prices, and impeccable service. My husband and I got hungry on our way up to Lake Tahoe and happened upon this gem. We'll be sure to make trips up to Auburn just for breakfast :)

I've been here twice now and both times the food and the service are outstanding. It must be the owner who greets you, runs the kitchen, serves your food, buses your table, and rings you up at the end. Nicest guy in the history of nice guys. Best service you could ever ask for. How's the food you ask. Have a salad and ask for the homemade ranch dressing. Amazing! And have whatever is on special. Today I had the Gyro and homemade potato salad. Weird combination? Yep, but the flavors were excellent! Last time I had a burger and fries. It literally gave any burger joint in town a run for their money. and, yes, that includes Burger and Cream. Do yourself a favor and come her for breakfast or lunch. Treat yourself!

There is so much to love about this restaurant. The first thing I feel in love with are all of the personal photos covering many different generations. I also have become a big fan of the owner who is very personal with his customers. Every time I go in he greets me with a smile. He knows about my passion for football and asks me how my team is doing. I enjoy visiting this place any time I can.

Off the road and across from a car repair shop is an unassuming breakfast & lunch joint. A round, red sign has "Mom's Kitchen: Breakfast & Lunch" in white facing the road on its brick wall. Inside is an expansive white walled - lined with bright red trim - where a variety of mom photos hang. It's a peculiar sight to be watched by so many motherly smiles and stares, but that's part of its theme. The cashier sits to the back left where the kitchen can be seen through the order-up window to its left. Seating is all to the right of the entrance. Short red-checkerboard topped tables are placed in the center of the grey floor while some taller tables line the windows. We were greeted with a smile by a employee who did triple duty as the main bus-person, waiter for every table, and who'd occasionally man the cashier. A laminated menu held all sorts of All-American dishes like scrambles, benedicts, pancakes 'n' waffles, and sandwiches for lunch. The potato pancakes seemed interesting. What came was a large plate occupied mostly by two large hash-brown-esque potato pancakes, a bowl of fruit, and two saucers - one with sour cream, one with salsa. By itself it had a nice, subtle, savory, potato-y flavor mellowed by egg and I believe some cheese. Add some of the sour cream and mild salsa, and you got a good start to the day sans the usual pancake or bacon. Not quite a latka but still quite delicious on its own accord. A nice thing to note was the quality of the fruit salad. Tangerines, apples, and bananas all put together but thankfully without the slime found some places. Overall, it's a pretty good place to nab a bit of comfort food housed in a peculiarly themed place with armed with friendly staff. For the price, it stands as one of Auburn's better options. It get's a good 4 (since I can't do 3.5).

My husband and I went in here on Valentine's Day, it wasn't our first visit. The prices are low, the food is in good proportions and very good. But, the service was awesome! I wish I would have caught his name, but I believe he is the owner. Very nice and was always smiling, such a pleasant place. Thank you for an amazing breakfast!
