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

Visited with friends in Bakersfield and decided to go out to eat one night. Everyone didn't want to go out, so about 4 of us decided to try Milt's. It was close by, and we heard the chicken was good. So.. two orders of the fried chicken, an order of the bbq brisket, and one order of the salmon dip..... More

We were greeted by a very friendly casher who took our information. now if I'm being nitpicky here the only thing that annoyed me was our table was ready, however she would not seat us until my daughter got...

Milt's Coffee Shop and Family Restaurant is a place that once you have been you will keep going back all your life! Recently it was featured on Diners, Drive-in's and Dives, Milt Huggs is the founder of Milt's and his son Mark is the owner of their sister restaurant the wildly popular 24th Street Cafe!

While driving through Bakersfield on a road trip we were seeking real food, not fast food. We got lucky! Good food, good servicer. Great find.

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!
