This is our favorite place to go for breakfast. We try to go at least once a week. We travel a lot and have not found a better place for breakfast. The staff is friendly and attentive. They have the best pancakes I have ever eaten. If you go on the weekend, go early or there could be a short... More

I have visited this establishment many times over the last few years and generally enjoyed the food but always the service has been somewhat lacking and always have felt rushed. The most recent trip was July 4th with a good friend I do not see very often so we were enjoying our catch up time over a tasty 'special omelette'... More

I went with a group of 9 people. We were seated quickly and greated by an upbeat, friendly waitress. I enjoyed the Patriotic Waffle, covered with strawberries, blueberries and whipped cream. The food arrived in a timely fashion. I will return.

I have had breakfast on several occasions. The staff is generally good. This recent trip, the staff seemed rushed even though the place wasn't full. They poured coffee in the cup and on the table. Didn't rush to clean it up. After it was cleaned up, they dumped a stack of napkins on the table as if the mess had... More

Loved the cinnamon roll and sausage, egg, chesse sandwich on english. Food was served hot too. Nice atmosphere and tables were not squished on top of each other.

When I moved to the area almost 15 years ago people told me that there was a great little Cafe on the Oval in Milford, it was small and very popular, serving basic breakfast and lunch fare. Since then the place has changed ownership, expanded and relocated a few doors down. Throughout it has been a place to stop in... More

After a morning of antiquing we decided to stop at the Cafe On The Oval for a bite of lunch. The establishment is clean, inviting, and best of all, food orders are brought up quickly. I ordered breakfast instead of lunch, wanting to try the Sausage Gravy Over Biscuit with two eggs and potatoes. My eggs were done the way... More

Read the many reviews and decided to give it a try. It is a very clean and casual restaurant. The waitstaff are very welcoming and the food was very good. We received our orders very quickly and the portions were very big and hot. Coffee was offered to us often. I will go back again.
