Local breakfast diner in Milpitas and it was pretty full when we arrived on a Saturday around 8:30 am. We ordered the corned beef hash and the chorizo egg entree and both came with a choice of toast or pancakes. The pancakes were just ok - I've had better elsewhere. Portion size was huge and the price was excellent. Definitely... More

Mil's Diner consistently has great huge omelets! My favorite is the 4 item. I fill mine with spinach, bacon, mushrooms, and cheddar cheese. I always have leftovers.

Service was prompt and my breakfast came out in under 5 minutes. I had the pancakes with bacon and scrambled eggs which was a special and it was quite good. Extensive menu. Great for a quick in and out before work. Location was easy to get to off the 880 freeway.

A lovely place to go for breakfast, brunch and lunch with different options available from omelette, steaks, pancakes and more. We ordered combo omelette and belgium waffles with strawberries. The liberal use of strawberries with whipped creme was delightful and the crisp bell peppers in the omelette were so juicy and refreshing. The staff is very friendly and gives a... More

I've been coming to this place for years mainly for their breakfasts......good food, friendly service and reasonable prices with that old time diner feel. They have wonderful breakfast specials ..... so take advantage of them. Keep up good work.....and I'll continue to be back.

I found this lovely diner a couple years ago on a business trip to San Jose and I return for breakfast at least once every time I come back to SV. Very good value in a breakfast and LOTS of food. Tasty stuff and fills me up to start my day.
