|Mom's café offers fine home-cooked meals|
In this day and age with fast food everywhere there are very few restaurants that truly serve homecooked food, but Mom's cafe, as the name suggests, surely does. The proprietor Khun Koong has assigned her eldest son Khun Moo to take care and run this business because she has many businesses to control and take care of such as the Money Exchange Shop in Phuket Town at Talang road, and Thai massage shops in Kata and Cherngtalay. The name Mom's Cafe comes from Khun Koong's love for preparing food. When her family goes out to other restaurants and she discovers delicious new dishes, she learns about the ingredients and then prepares similar dishes herself. She also finds interesting menu options on the Internet. Mom's Cafe was opened last September and before it became a restaurant it was their family home. But they had to move away and leave the house abandoned, and unfortunately, it was robbed, so they decided to turn it into a cafe/ restaurant.
In the beginning, they had a plan to do only a coffee shop, but the customers started to ask for food early on, and as it very big house it became only natural to convert it into a fully-functioning restaurant, designed to serve customers a variety of foods and drinks. The restaurant is very nice with tasty food there is also a swimming pool, so sometimes customer come to have lunch and go swimming. Some customers even ask "Can I stay here?" Khun Koong apologizes, but says Mom's is only a restaurant, not a guest house.
Many customers return to Mom's café, because they feel relaxed and enjoy the homey atmosphere: Mom's also gets many student customers who study and do their homework while waiting on their orders. The price of food is reasonable, especially when you consider the ambiance, caring service and beauty of the home.
Moreover, Khun Koong does everything in the restaurant including cleaning, cooking, taking orders and taking care of her customers. She is friendly, very nice and very hospitable. There's also ample parking space at the restaurant.
