My first visit to the Milford Diner was about 7 years ago. I was in town for a job interview and was surprised and disappointed to find the Bob Evan's restaurant wasn't open early, so I crossed the street to the Milford Diner, which was open. I had a good breakfast, and decided the Bob Evan's didn't need my business.
Over the years I've been back to the Milford Diner, on rare occasions, for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The food has always been good, though sometimes the kitchen is slow. The service has always been good.
This morning my wife and I stopped there at lunch time, though we both ordered breakfast. Again the kitchen was slow, but the food and the service were a step above what we would normally expect. And we barely exceeded a $10 tab.
I understand the diner has changed hands recently. The outside has benefited from a new coat of paint. The interior remains classic diner, in a good way. The place is clean and the atmosphere pleasant. The locals may grumble that it isn't what it was, but you'd expect that. I've been in many diners and the Milford Diner, past or present, is one of the better ones.
One way they have departed from tradition is they now take credit cards. The previous owners only took cash. The world changes, and even diners need to evolve, a little.
