Description: 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.

We toured the working grist mill, which can be observed through the glass in the restaurant & bar. Excellent wine & beer list. Awesome breakfasts (2) best pancakes & French toast! Also enjoyed lunch & sampled their apple pie & berry pie, all made in house. An unusual menu, with American & Vietnamese choices, friendly attentive servers. Would highly recommend.

many nice selections on menu. Try the home made mint iced tea. Not much air conditioning on a hot day.

My wife and I went there twice while on vacation in Milford, once for breakfast and then for lunch the next day. The food was excellent both times with very good service. For lunch, sit outside so you can see and hear the Sawkill creek which runs next to the restaurant.
