Great breakfasts, great prices

Love the different choices for breakfast, including burritos, home made coffee cake (yum!), eggadillas, and other interesting specials. Food is great, service is friendly, and efficient. It's a cozy place, and you often have to wait, especially on the weekends, and occasionally in the summer... read more

It's a cozy place, and you often have to wait, especially on the weekends, and occasionally in the summer. Worth the wait, and worth the drive of 15 miles for us!

This breakfast and lunch coffee shop has been at the same location as long as I remember. The food remains unchanged and it is always good. I come here periodically with friends and family members. I appreciate that the standard is the same - there are never any surprises. For a typical American breakfast and lunch I recommend Millies Kitchen.

Millie's is so popular, that you have to time your visit to get a seat. get there in between the rush hours of breakfast and lunch. Parking is very limited, and the resturant up a small hill...not good for disabled. Metered street parking. Home-style food, friendly service. Large servings. That's why all the local work crews stop here.

Not a lot of parking, but worth the effort---great breakfast--great food--excellent service---try the Millie's Omelete---or the Millie's Benedict!! Looks small from outside, but larger inside----might have to walk uphill to get in---but when you are through---it's all downhill!!

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... 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.
