Good breakfast meeting place

Milo's was suggested by a local friend as a place to meet him for breakfast. It was perfect. W hen we got there, it was well attended, but not crowded. Food was good, with manageable portions. Service was attentive but not stifling. This family-run restaurant is a keeper.

My husband liked the crab cake benedict, but my veggie benedict included tasteless tomatoes only. The crispy potatoes with onions were good, and it was nice getting the fruit cup. They do not have an espresso machine, so I missed my latte or cappuccino, although they made a mocha for my husband.

When looking for a small convenient cafe for a quick lunch we spotted the Milo's City Cafe sign and looked in. This is NOT a cafe with extravagant ,luxury atmosphere, but a simple cafe with friendly wait staff that serves promptly and with excellent food. By observing the patrons and overhearing them, you can tell some of them eat at... More

We have eaten at Milo's before and had great food so returned again when we were visiting Portland. We were not disappointed. The menu and food remind us of San Francisco. We had a fantastic meal - pasta for me and vegetarian sandwich for my husband. We shared a yummy salad with craisins, hazelnuts, gorgonzola cheese, and wonderful light lemon... More

Suggested by the hosts at the Lion and the Rose this bistro was a wonderful experience. Ashley was our server and an absolute joy. Lauren the owner came and sat with us share his recipe for his short ribs. We totally enjoyed our meals and a bottle of Oregon Wine. The best

Staying in Portland's Irvington area this summer, we've been to City Cafe a number of times. The food and service is good and consistent but nothing memorable except the Bloody Mary. We like it as a quick breakfast place.

We had 4 breakfasts at Milo's, walking distance from our NE B&B. Most reliable meal is eggs, wonderful pepper bacon, and sourdough toast. You can substitute sautéed or raw spinach for your potatoes. Homemade strawberry jam is a treat. The fruit cup is very nice. Hash did not turn me on; muffins under eggs Benedict are not toasted (obviously you... More
