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 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.

The people are friendly, the portions are huge, the food typical. A large crispy-on-the-edges pancake was particularly good. And I appreciate the extra maple syrup on the table. I thought ugly the potatoes were boring, even with the extra onions and peppers. Also my husbands omelet looked over cooked. I bet the Greek specialties are good and may try those... More

Every visit to Mils is fantastic. Whether it is your first visit or your 1000th. The Staff is great and everyone is welcome. You can't go wrong with any item you choose, from Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner. All menu items served all day. The soups, that are made fresh, every morning by the owner Louie are really good and after... More

Mil's serves the best breakfasts. The french toast is excellently seasoned and cooked to perfection. There is a breakfast special list that includes a lot of favorites. The eggs are always cooked to they way they were ordered (never over/underdone), the country potatoes simply scrumptious and the bacon is the best I have eaten in a long time. To top... More
