Eclectic eats in fun setting; friendly staff and well prepared food in comfortable environs. We had a range of dishes which were all better then expected. Milo's staff go the extra step in describing the dishes, and making you feel 'part of the family'.

Great choice of food and beverages at Milo's. The food is excellent and portions would challenge those with a large apatite. Lots of seating with great friendly service.

Best pan fried oysters EVER ! Perfectly cooked and so fresh ! Had them twice in 6 days. Nathan, our waiter, was very attentive but not overbearing! Friendly and knowledgable. Great place to eat while in Portland. Don't miss it.

Recommended by our hotel concierge, we stopped in for an early lunch. The coconut curry chicken soup which we shared was excellent and incredibly tasty. My husband and I both chose omelettes but with different fillings. My vegetarian one was filled with fresh spinach, button mushrooms, onions and yummy cheese. The omelette itself was very light and fluffy and a... More

We had looked at a few places in the Alberta Arts area, but asked the concierge at the Doubletree for a recommendation and glad we did. This obviously local place had fantastic food and great prices. Mom had the Fancy Pants Bacon Mac-n-cheese, spouse had the oysters and I couldn't decide between two pastas so I let server Nathan decide.... More

Milo's was highly recommended by our innkeeper, and because it was nearby, we went for dinner. Our meals were fresh, delicious and very enjoyable. We especially loved the seafood. A few nights later, we decided to go back again for dinner. Both times, we were well taken care of by our server, Nathan. After dining, we learned from our innkeeper... More

For all the stars and rave reviews Milo's City Cafe gets, I expected even their simple breakfast to be great, but not so. I'm a big potato lover, and theirs were hard squares of deep fried, possibly frozen, dry nuggets. Potato lovers would do better to go elsewhere for breakfast.

Another trip to the Lloyd Center area means a visit to Milo's. I think their breakfasts are the best in the area. Portions tend to be large, which some people like, but the many choices, including twists on classic dishes like eggs Benedict and omelets, are worth trying and perhaps sharing if you prefer smaller portions. Coffee is good, service... More
