Scrumptious coffeecake and local ambiance

Old fashioned breakfast with amazing coffeecake. Folks were lined up even on a weekday morning (but the line moved quickly). It's a local hangout, set back from the road, but worth finding. Metered parking on the street.

Millies Kitchen is a renovated house turned restaurant.and a favorite amongst the locals... It is quite quaint and you feel like your eating at grandmas. iAll the bakery items are prepared fresh. Millies is best known for their coffee cake, light moist cake with a sweet crumb topppin and melted butter. I prefer the cake without the addition of butter.it... More

Millie's is a little bit of Lafayette history. It's been a part of Lafayette forever. The food is simple and good. The servers are nice and friendly.

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. 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!!

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...
