The Portobello mushroom omelette is amaziing!

Milts Coffee Shop has an omelette made with mushroom and wine, which was incredible. We also tried the ham and eggs too. The ham was so tender that you could cut with a fork. All this comes with biscuits and gravy.Very old school.

I enjoyed a great breakfast at this busy, bustling old time diner with three friends before a business meeting. The coffee flowed freely, the omelette was delivered as ordered, and the service was very pleasant. The food took a while to come, but they were busy. Two thumbs up!

Mitl'ts is the place for down to earth people to meet, have great food, drink, and enjoy the friendliest staff with great service! I compare it to the place in the TV show, "Cheers", everybody knows your name and most customer are regulars. It's located right off CA99 at the Olive drive exit. A must stop if you are passing...

Getting lost and finding Milt's Coffee Shop was a great experience for me. However, Milt's is freeway easy. The restaurant is staffed by some of the nicest people. They know we are seeking sustenance. They deliver in spades. The chicken fried steak that I had was cooked old school style, flowered and fresh tasting, not frozen patties typically called "country... More

My wife and I had dinner at Milt's on the 4th of July!!! Very appropriate as it is an All American throw-back. Menu quite varied, with daily specials, we had Fish and Chips, an asked to go easy on the breading! They came very juicy, lightly breaded and delicious. The chips were fries but nicely done, with a good average... More

Even though I've lived in Bakersfield for almost 34 years, this was my first visit to Milt's. It felt like a time travel trip to the late 1950's... an unassuming diner with simple décor, excellent food, and great service. Now I want to go back again. I would recommend it to anyone traveling up or down Highway 99 -- just... More

I really liked this place. It reminded me of a restaurant my parents would stop and have us eat at on the way to visit family in the station wagon. I especially liked the 3-D map of the United States at the entrance and the collection on the wall of 50 decorative plates from each state in the Union. What... More
