Had an early morning breakfast here. Decided upon this spot due to the high rating on trip advisor. Breakfast was delicious. My daughter had the special of the day, strawberry stuffed French toast. It was delicious! I had more of a traditional breakfast and it was very good. Service was quick and we had no wait to get seated, however... More

You never see a waterfall from this cafe. We had Breakfast and were not impressed with service or food. Bacon was not cooked and coffee was not great. Service was fair and no one was at the entrance to help you with seating.

While staying next door at the the Inn @ Mill Falls Chase House we enjoyed breakfast several times at the Waterfall. We found the space very pleasant, the staff extremely friendly and helpful and the food well presented and consistently good. The chef obviously cares about each dish that leaves the kitchen. We also enjoyed the coffee. It really was... More

A small but very pleasant cafe. Good range of snacks and more substantial meals. Smiling and helpful staff. It's in the Mill Falls Marketplace and is good for a break from browsing. Particularly enjoyed the coffee here.

We've eaten at the Waterfall Cafe multiple times over several trips. It's always great food, very good service, reasonably priced and an overall nice experience. We typically go for a late breakfast. They are busy during peak hours, but the service is quick and tables turn over fairly quickly...we've never waited for a table. It is a small cafe with... More

The food at the Waterfall Cafe is always good. If you are going for lunch make sure and get there early as they get busy fast and there is limited seating.

Our last two lunches at the cafe confirm that they know food and how to prepare it. The atmosphere is very pleasant except for the occasional whiff of chlorine from the hotel pool. Why can't the hotel do something more about that? Even so, it is worth eating here. The prices are reasonable and it is one of the best... More

Thank you for the terrific review of the Waterfall Café! We pride ourselves on fresh breakfast and lunch items with delicious specials that change daily! I appreciate your comments about the pool aroma - certainly not something enjoyable while dining! I had not realized that this was an issue and I am happy to check our ventilation system to see...
