“Favorite Sarasota Breakfast Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2013

Each time we visit Sarasota, we make Millie's our last meal of our stay. We love their breakfasts! We make it our "goodbye breakfast" stop!

Everything from stuffed omelets, amazing waffles, traditional egg and bacon meals, blintzes, pancakes, etc. We've always enjoyed whatever meals we have ordered!

The staff is friendly and helpful. The atmosphere is quaint and decorations are not what you'd find at most chain restaurants...very "homey." Food is reasonably priced. The longest we've ever had to wait was on a Sunday morning around 10am. We waited for a table for about 15 minutes.

There's something for everyone at Millie's. I believe you'll enjoy it as much as our family has!

“Friendly service, good breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2013

This is a breakfast & lunch only place. It's one of those old-fashioned looking restaurants- the kind is decorated for every holiday (in this case Easter), with faux-antiques. It's super family friendly, and its menu has everything breakfast.

Our omelet was a little underdone, but the bacon was just as I ordered - crispy - it's amazing how often breakfast places interpret that as "leathery" -- not at Millie's however. Same with the eggs- done to perfection.

The grits are unusually creamy. I liked it, but my husband missed the drier consistency.

Service was very friendly, prompt, attentive.

For those who care: the bathrooms were spotless-- again something that is rarer that it should be.

“This is the place for breakfast and or lunch...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2013 via mobile

This is the place for breakfast and or lunch...the stuffed French toast or the crepes are a must. The owner George is from NY and brings his style to some home style cooking.

“just ok.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2013

read allot of reviews so gave it a try. its just ok. allot of retired locals frequent this restaurant and the staff know this and cater to them. food was ok, i have had better and i have had worse... not impressed and the waitress we had just had so many tables that she really wasn't able to keep up adequately to get us refills etc. it is better than eating at say mcdonalds, or something like that. not really sure if i would go back, maybe, maybe not. not worth waiting say 45 minutes or so. we waited 15.
