excellent breakfast

With traditional, as well as interesting specials, the menu at Millies should satisfy most anyone. Not super fancy, just good. It gets quite busy in the AM and thins out at lunch. Best breakfast in town.

Yes, I know. Bacon is not great for your health. However, ever so often my husband and I wander down to Millie's for a delicious plate of fried eggs, crispy bacon and hash brown potatoes. It is the best breakfast in Lafayette.

Food was delicious and we had a wonderful server - friendly and efficient. The fan was a bit much and made it a little chilly but when we asked to turn it down they did and it made a difference. I might suggest a better way to describe the location since it is tucked away on the hill and easily... More

Millie's is a respectable 'home style' eatery with really friendly service and a nice, varied menu. Only open for breakfast & lunch, there's often a wait - but it's worth it if you are looking for quality and fresh eats. Be sure to have a piece of their house-made coffee cake - it's deeeeelish. While not inexpensive, Millie's is a... More

I have been going to Millies for 25 years and it has never disappointed in the consistency of the food. I especially like going there very early in the morning when the smells from the kitchen are a great wake up. Try the pancakes and a good cup of coffee and you are set for the day to begin.

Great little place to get a great meal-----has a tendency to fill up and parking is tricky---might have to park on a hill---or try to find a spot on the street. Great menu---can't beat the Millie's Benedict!!Great food---great service

Food here is excellent and is a mix of good old downhome food and more avant-garde dishes. I have only been for brunch but it was excellent. Generous portions.

Great food, great service, loved it! The scramble was filled with fresh veggies and the coffee hot and good. Was there in a Saturday morning and it was crowded but I was seated quickly.

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 or the gym. 830-930 weekdays lots of mom groups who have dropped kids... More
