All of the usual breakfast items. The food is good. The coffee is good. The waitresses are friendly. But what makes this place special is how fast the service is. You can come at the busiest time, and your food will be on the table minutes after ordering! They have things down to a science!!

Love Cafe on the Oval! Great for breakfast or lunch. Our grandkids enjoyed the food and the casual ambience.My favorite breakfasts are the grilled cinnamon roll and the pumpkin bread pudding that they serve in the fall.

I had thirty minutes to grab a lunch, based on experience I figured that I would use parking availability to decide my restaurant choice, i.e. if there was a spot open by the Red Arrow I would go there, otherwise I knew that a spot would be available behind the Cafe on the Oval and I would go there. Nothing... More

If you want good food, friendly service and nice atmosphere, Café on the Oval is the place to go for your Sunday morning breakfast or brunch. A well run establishment! My husband and I go here often. Sometimes we have to wait a few minutes, but it's always worth it. I've taken my brother here several times and he always... More

Located on the oval in Milford where parking can be difficult, this is a great place for breakfast or lunch. It has excellent version of all expected diner breakfast and lunch meals and daily specials. Good food, quick service and reasonable prices. What's not to like?

The experience was very good, everyone was pleased with their orders. We were seated and served quickly. The staff was efficient and friendly. The food was fresh and... More
