We try to get to the Cafe on the Oval at least once a month for breakfast. The Omelets are very good and my wife enjoys the pancakes. We have enjoyed great service on all visits. I recommend the Cafe in the Oval, you will not be disappointed.

Wife and I have visited Milford many times, but this was our first time at the Cafe on the oval. Service was prompt and waitress very pleasant. Definitely will for a breakfast or lunch. Prices very reasonable.

The Cafe on the oval is a nice friendly place for breakfast and lunch. The food is very good many homemade specialties to choose from. It's no frills just a good ole home town diner/cafe.

Wonderful experience dining here!!, Parking easy to access around the oval or behind the building. Food is very fresh, not overwhelming portions, place is clean and nicely decorated. Fast and friendly waitstaff that don't hurry if you want another cup of coffee to linger longer!
