Whenever possible, I like to avoid chain restaurants and eat "local." Not only is Millie's local, but this restaurant serves good grub and has for years. I go often for breakfast with friends and frequently choose the buttermilk pancakes, which are light and tasty. The potato pancakes remind me of my grandmother's wonderful creations. French toast, waffle and egg dishes... More

Great local spot in Tucson for breakfast, especially pancakes. Their special apple pancake takes 20 minutes so you have to wait, but its worth it. Any of their egg breakfasts are also good. My fav is the veggie omlete. Their selection of toast includes some of their own baked bread! Service good and friendly. You can buy a loaf of... More

I had high hopes going in. First thing that happened was we ordered and then were left sitting for 20 minutes, no coffee refill, no nothing. Then a very apologetic manager came out with coffee refills and stated that our waitress was sick and had to leave so they were now short staffed. Um, ew. Last thing I want is... More

I went to Millie's with my parents because they found a coupon in the paper. My parents are both in their 80's and it can difficult to wait on them but Kim did a great job of speaking loudly enough, not taking anything personally, and smiling. We went to try the German Potato Pancakes and compare them to a German... More

Both of my daughters and my 20-something niece swear by a Millie's Pancake Breakfast and whenever I'm in town I set aside the half hour required for Millie's gigantic pancake to arrive from the oven. I spend the previous day fasting so I can finish off the most sumptuous pancake I've ever enjoyed anywhere. I'm so glad I have Millie's... More

Absolutely love their breakfast. Their seasonal pumpkin pancakes are amazing. Omelets are wow! And their breakfast potatoes...yum! Really have not had anything here that we did not like. The staff is so friendly and attentive. Really a great restaurant.

I do not agree with the bad reviews. We have been there twice in Oct. The service was excellent. The food was cooked properly and served by very pleasant people. The atmosphere is comfortable and relaxing. Were were there on a week day so it wad not crowded. Perhaps on weekends they are very busy and service could be compromised.... More

We were looking for a good local breakfast place. Very disappointed! Pancakes were small, undercooked and tasteless. Try the Good Egg or Cracker Barrel for better breakfast!
