The patrons must have felt sorry for the young mom, because they left behind a $101.79 tip, doubling their total bill.
"A family decided to bless me after I had mentioned to them that I had a baby sleeping at home," West wrote on Facebook.
Making the gesture all the more emotional was the message the patrons left on the receipt: "Happy Mother's Day!"
