My husband and I went there for lunch on more than one occasion. There service was always attentive, and the food great. A good value for home cooked food. Highly recommend

We had a great lunch. I had a BLT and sweet potato fries. Service was prompt and food was hot and tasty. We had a great view of the river.

I've only been here for breakfast (top-notch) but I've seen the lunch menu- it's pretty impressive! They have awesome servers and delicious food. Arrive early for a good seat!

The Compost Heap here is amazing. My kids love the French Toast. If it looks busy, be ready to wait at least 45 minutes for your food and 25 minutes for your check. Try to stop in when it is not too busy (early on a weekday morning! - no on a weekend!). The coffee is not so great. Maybe... More

This is a must stop for breakfast or lunch. Great burgers! Right on the oval in Milford. Upgrade to the sweet potato fries.

Super breakfast place. Well worth the wait. Local sourced sausage and other foods. Not your ordinary breakfast.

Wee love this place. Our only complaint would be that it is so popular we almost always have to wait for a table,but it is worth it! The staff is awesome! The food is great! And the cost is very reasonable. This is our go to place for breakfast even in the middle of the day.

We arrived on a Saturday about 1:15 or so and easily got a table for our party. It is kind of a smaller place, so If you have more than 5 or 6 I could see why there could be a wait. The server was very friendly and the atmosphere was old school New England cafe in the square of... More
