Bustling cafe with both outdoor and indoor seating. We both had the chicken salad (with walnuts and grapes) on a brioche bun and enjoyed our lunch immensely. Despite the business, our waitress was very attentive and helpful.

Food is very good! Great people and atmosphere! Save room for the tasty desserts. At times it can be crowded, it is worth the wait if you are not in a rush. Always pleasant people to converse with. I enjoy the breakfast and lunch.

My husband and I stopped here for lunch while in the area visiting waterfalls. The food was great. We had the Vietnamese sandwich and the prosciutto and goat cheese sandwich. Both were large sandwiches, so we didn't have room for dessert, but the desserts did look delicious too. We would have gone back for coffee and dessert in the afternoon,... More

Stopped by for a quick lunch. The pizzas are outstanding, especially 3 cheese. Desserts are very fresh. Great pie. Will return and try their homemade Roast Beef which looked amazing. Great atmosphere. Outdoor seating available right near a nice flowing creek.

We tried the Mediterranean platter and the Vietnamese sandwich and coffee. All were fine. They get busy at lunch but the wait wasn't too long. Quaint restaurant with lot of sandwiches and salads.

The Water Wheel Cafe would fit in nicely either in Provincetown, or on a side street in Bar Harbor. It has a very hip, sort of earth-mother vibe that is both interesting and very relaxing at the same time. The building is obviously very old, and it probably housed a real water wheel originally because it is almost at the... More

We love this place, and it is our favorite for breakfast and lunch as well as for a live music and socializing in the bar some se nights. You cannot go wrong with their pies: apple, cherry, rubbarb, and cakes and French pastery. It is very nice to seat outside on the patio if the weather is not horrible hot... More

I have been in here several times. Dinner, lunch, dessert and coffee... we have not been disappointed yet. Very nice staff, pretty location, unique menu. Be sure to take the self guided tour of the water wheel!

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.
