Old time breakfast with communal tables

All the basic traditional breakfast offerings and sometimes regional inspired dishes. Large portions and lots of coffee refills. About half the seating is at long shared tables. Everything is good, nothing is fantastic, but it is breakfast. Early am tends to be people on way to/from work... read more

Good, country-style breakfast! Small place, and you might have to sit with another diner, but great food and service! Beats a hotel breakfast any day.

Millies has been serving no-frills, country-style, hearty breakfasts for as long as I can remember (back to the 1970's anyway). The converted post-war bungalow in the shade of the freeway make Millies the antithesis of a franchise restaurant. When you eat at Millies, you are going to meet-up with your local friends and families. You are going to have a... More

Great food located around the BART station. We did not come at a busy time so we sat right away. The food was served promptly as well. It worth a look if you are in the area.

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!
