The Sign Says "Eat Here" - You Should

I've had dozens of meals at Milt's over the years. I should have penned this review long ago. After all of those meals it's simple to see that this coffee shop is very consistent. The food is that way with a few twists and I believe the restaurant staff is about the same as when I first visited... read more

I wondered into Mitt's Café one night when Hodel's was packed. I was not disappointed. The wait staff was very friendly and helpful. The café was like stepping back in time to the days of ole malt/coffee shops. I did not know what to order so I ordered a piece of pie and coffee. They brought me a mini cherry... More

Fantastic cinnamon rolls made fresh in-house. We've had some very big cinnamon rolls, some very sweet cinnamon rolls and good homemade cinnamon rolls, but the one we had at Milt's was tops in every category. The topping included a sweet melted frosting that included plenty of butter. The combination was a great sweet/buttery treat, topped with ground cinnamon. Wow! We've... More

I really liked this coffee shop, although they were quite busy and our service did suffer. We had to ask for several things more than once. The food was quite good, especially chicken salad, steak fries, potato soup.

By staring at a neighboring table's "goods" I was coerced into one of the best Bloody Mary's I've ever had...just enough zing. And the pumpkin pancakes and special butter? Heaven! Had to try it since Guy had it here! Yep, numlicious. Service was spot on. I look forward to this place again. Definitely where I wanna go for breakfast. A... More

Fifties Diner sort of feel. We were coming back from LA, and stopped in for breakfast. I had the short stack of blueberry pancakes, and they were delicious!

Milt is an iconic Bakersfield diner. Nothing fancy as far as decor. But let's talk food! They have both the usual breakfast fare and a bunch of specialty dishes ranging from fried artichokes n eggs to a pastrami omelet and more. Their pumpkin pancakes were reconfigure featured on diners, drive-ins and dives. In addition to amazing food, the service rocks.... More
