We had ventured out of our neighborhood to Northeast Broadway and stumbled across Milo's. There were people waiting for tables, so we went elsewhere, but made a note to return. We returned for an early dinner on a week night and this time there was no line. We were seated and presented with a menu. I would describe Milo's as... More

Milo's Cafe is one of my favorite restaurants located in the Lloyd District. It is a family owned and operated business. From the moment that you enter the restaurant you are greeted by the friendly staff. The chef is the owner, his wife and brother-in-law waits on the tables. The food is always a surprise. The specials are creatively flavored... More

We stopped in to Milo's at approximately 9 a.m. on a Wednesday morning and were seated immediately. Our server was busy, but friendly, although he never introduced himself. I had the Dungeness Crab Cakes & Eggs, with wheat toast. They were fantastic. The crab cakes were mostly crab, not breading, and were so fresh. The home fries (Potatoes) were yummy,... More

We went here based on the reviews in TA and were surprised by the great feedback they have received. This place was nothing to get excited about. I had a prawn curry special which was more spicy than flavorful and my wife had a risotto with shrimp that she described as "institutional." The Caesar salad lacked any flavor. On a... More

What's not to like about fabulous food and service! We all ordered something a little different but everyone at our table agreed that this was a scrumptious breakfast.

Food was pretty good -- no sign of the "butter sauce" on the butternut squash ravioli, and my companion had to ask for dressing on the salad. The bread was fantastic. Service brought my rating down from "very good" to "average". When the server finally arrived, we asked to order our food since we didn't want any drinks, and she... More

The food, wine, and service helped us enjoy an excellent dinner for our 58th wedding anniversary. It is a great neighborhood café with a caring and competent staff.

The food here is quite satisfying, although not cutting-edge creative nor super gourmet. The menu is eclectic: pasta, steak, seafood, some Italian dishes, some Pacific Northwest dishes, and a few more miscellaneous items such as pulled pork, Greek salad, etc. Everything from the appetizer to dessert was good, and the service was excellent. It's not the type of place you'd... More
