Good food, and good servings

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.

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.

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

Any time you are longing for a generous portion of thick slabs of bacon, eggs cooked to your satisfaction, hash brown, and your choice if bread - head for Millie's Kitchen. This place, only open for breakfast and lunch, is a Lafayette landmark. You cannot miss a satisfying meal here.

My problem with breakfast is that I don't like eggs. Millie's has lots of other wonderful and delicious choices. My kids love coming here even now that they are away at college, they love it when they come home!
