Great down home breakfasts

The people at the Mill Inn cafe are absolutely fantastic. I highly recommend their breakfast, but I bet their lunches are just as good.

Stopped for breakfast on our way out of town. Good food and service. A little pricey for similar restaurants in area. No add ons, just scrambled eggs, toast, bacon, hash browns, small OJ and coffee for me and an meat lovers omelet for my husband with a diet soft drink. With the tip it was close to $30. I would...

This restaurant caters to elderly locals. The food is bland and it's dirty. It was once a service station and the building has a lot of charm, unfortunately it's not being maintained very well. The food was okay, the service though was horrible. Our waitress just disappeared and never returned half way through our meal. Service was very slow even... More

I've eaten here, several times. The food is prepared right and pleasing to the eye. Staff is kind and courteous. Parking is a little rough.

Went for breakfast on a Sunday. Food was ok, nothing special. Waitress was pleasant. Appeared as only one cook on duty so wait time for simple breakfast was long.

The food has carbohydrates and you'll live through it, but go there for a cup of coffee and try to blend with the old cronies who hang out there - their conversation is the most enjoyable thing on the menu.

We live in this little town and had not been to this restaurant in YEARS. We had friends in town and wanted to go for a late breakfast on a Sunday. Went here and what we found was the best little "buffet". While not a big buffet it had absolutely THE best pan fried chicken I have had since my... More

You can tell it has been apart of the town for years, most people are locals and all seem to know each other. Everyone is friendly and service was fast. Good food and a place that we would go back to all the time if we lived in town.

We went here for breakfast two days in a row. The breakfast menu is old school diner with service to match. Our server teased my daughter and her best friend because they ordered the same thing and were wearing the same shirt. This is most assuredly the kind of place where you expect to be called "hon" or "sweetie." It... More

I had a basic breakfast of egg [was cooked exactly as ordered] hash browns [nothing to get excited about, but not at all greasy], and sausage [two big nice patties]. Good service. Fair price. I enjoyed sitting and listening to the natives chatter.
