I was part of a group of 9 people. We had a reservation and were seated promptly. The server was able to give us separate checks. All of the food came out at the same time and was at the proper temperature. I ordered spiced vegetables over brow rice with cheese. It's hard to believe how tasty this simple dish... More

We loved our baked goods here. Delicious! Wish I could have had one of each! Especially wish that their hours were expanded. We wanted a late lunch/early dinner on a Monday, but they only serve dinners on the weekends and lunch is only until 3:30 on the other days. (I WOULD have ordered a melted open-faced brie with granny smith... More

I just ate the best tuna sandwich of my life with some high quality homemade French onion soup. The place was packed for good reason. I'd drive 30 minutes for a meal this good. It's in a hidden location, but if you're nearby make sure you don't miss it. The value is really good, what a great place. I'll be... More

Within this restored Grist Mill are three separate businesses and an old mill that you can tour (free). We visited on a beautiful sunny day so we ate al fresco overlooking wildflowers and a stream - just a lovely setting. Staff was very helpful and courteous. Our meal was nutrtious and tasty. Glad to have discovered the mill while journeying... More

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 & lunch daily with dinners being served Thursday, Friday & Saturday evenings. Waterwheel's customers are comfortable in a relaxed, casual atmosphere. The kitchen staff consistently prepares a fresh and flavorful eclectic menu that excites not only the palate, but the eye as well.
