We went for breakfast and felt that as a tourist I was getting authentic food. They don't take cards, but you are able to pay in US dollars and will get change in their currency. The food was traditional (stewed chicken, mackerel, saltfish, ackee, etc.) however you can order back and eggs if you're looking for an American breakfast as... More

The Chicken soup was to die for! We had curry goat and it was the very best I've ever had. A truly authentic experience.

Mom's is a place I visit every time I go to Jamaica. Visited twice this trip. Had curry goat first time and oxtail the second. Both times the food was excellent. For good food go early as some dishes run out quickly.

Mom's is a satisfactory diner serving some decent Jamaican fare. Nice place to grab some breakfast and they've got a killer oxtail going for them. Good value place but their signage is super small and easily overlooked.

If you really want to experience the real Jamaican CUISINE this is the place to go it is not expensive and anything you need from the Jamaican menu is here...the place is clean and the staff is friendly if you do not see something on the menu they will be happy to make it.

We've been to this place everyday since we arrived on the island. Very good authentic Jamaican food and the ladies are nice. It's a convenient location and did I mention the food was delicious. Yes, even our children clean their plates. Great little place for us returning locals and not expensive.

Thank Fern B
