I wouldn't suggest the road itself as a tourist destination. It's a great cultural mix, but there's not much to see as a visitor. However, for Asian groceries - particularly Korean foods - it's brilliant. There are also a number of quite good restaurants and cafes.

I don't understand the hype about Mill Road. It's scruffy in parts, and horribly cluttered. If you want to buy fresh fruit or vegetables, or some mysterious asian groceries it's worth the detour, and there's a really EXCELLENT Italian deli - other than that there's really nothing to write home about.

very difficult to drive down, the road is too narrow for cars, truck deliveries and cyclists, not to mention the pedestrians
