Situated on the Sawkill Creek, in Milford, PA the Waterwheel Café, Bakery & Bar was started in April of 1989 in a restored 19th century water-powered mill, which is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Originally built in the early 1800's this lively example of American history is now in action and its doors are open to the public. Water rushes over the three-story high water-wheel, driving a series of shafts, gears, pulleys and belts that once powered the stones & grain-milling equipment, all visible through the glass walls of the Café & Bar. Starting at first as a bakery & lunch café the Waterwheel has grown into a full scale restaurant, bakery and bar-serving breakfast

Water Wheele was recommended by everyone in Milford. We had breakfast there and it was great. We loved being in the historical building. Coffee was really good.

Chicken salad is all white meat. Every meal we've had here has been excellent. We normally go for lunch in the café or dinner in the bar.
