May 7 We came here for our breakfast. Though we have been here before about six years ago, It is not the easiest to find. It is tucked into the back of the hill in the middle of a busy, busy, street that leads to the freeway on ramp. Parking is plentiful and free. It is a real cafe in... read more

This place, our friends told us, was unique. They were right. Small, carved out of a hillside, cramped parking area - but really good breakfasts. We didn't have any issues with the servers, the parking or the food. Had a leisurely breakfast and enjoyed it. It's a funky place, but funk doesn't cut it if the food/service isn't good. Both...

Food is acceptable and overpriced. This place is always over packed in the weekend, even though there are a lot of servers, the service is slow as molasses.

Milles Kitchen is an "old stand-by" restaurant which serves very nice servings of good food. It is particularly busy on weekends so I suggest to get there early.

There's nothing like a Sunday morning trip to Millies to kick start a great Sunday. Get there early or come after church, the food is worth the wait. Parking can be a little tough at times but theres plenty of metered street parking. We typically start off with a piece of home made coffee cake, ask them to warm it... More

Small diner in what was a house at one time. Very clean & from the back room a view of the great cooks preparing the food. Great breakfast food, the variety will please any taste. Well worth a stop.

Decided to visit Millie's Kitchen on the day after Christmas. After enduring the holiday "feeding frenzy" that started on Christmas Eve, a good old-fashioned breakfast was the ticket! Although Millie's is a local favorite and there was a bit of a wait, we were seated in good time and were tended to immediately. I ordered the Crab Omelette Special. It... More

If you are looking for traditional breakfast this is the place. Eggs, bacon, and hash brown potatoes are cooked just as I ordered. My friend just visiting from Sweden longed for Eggs Benedicts, she was not disappointed. While the lines are often long, the server are fast, efficient and friendly. I recommend this small restaurant.

Small place with food like mama's kitchen. You sit close and eat with friends. The ladies here are great and quick and the food is always hot and good....get there early for the breakfast cake it goes quick. Don't miss it.

The food at Millie’s is good. The service is good. The prices are outrageous. (This is in LaFayette where everything is ridiculously overpriced. Get used to it.) What puzzled me is why anyone would rave about the food, or why the line is so long to get in. This is standard diner breakfast food. That's all. Then it dawned on... More
