“A Gem in the Heart of Godalming”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

Café Mila, just off Godalming’s historic High Street, is a wonderful spot. What makes it so special is the combination of its setting (a sheltered courtyard away from the traffic) and the warm, welcoming atmosphere created by owner Steve and his cheerful staff. It's one of the most friendly places I've been to in a long while.

It helps that the coffee is good, while the cakes and food, all baked/made on the premises, are excellent. I liked it so much that I visited twice, once with a friend for Sunday brunch (which was excellent) and then again one afternoon the following week for a more extended visit.

It's a great place to sit outside since the courtyard is away from the traffic, while if you want to sit inside, you have a choice between the bustling downstairs and the quieter, more relaxed upstairs. If you can't find the perfect spot for you, it's probably because someone else has got there first!

“What a find”
Reviewed September 8, 2013 via mobile

Really liked the character of this place, only niggle was receiving your cake before your tea. Would have been nicer to enjoy it all together, will be back soon.

“Cafe Mila, Godalming”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

A delightful little cafe set back from the main high street in Godalming. I have to say in my opinion, the best coffee in town. But please please don't serve those small cups without anywhere to put your fingers. Anyone with arthritis wouldn't be able to cope :-/

And as for being pricey, well you get what you pay for.

“Very good”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

We stopped off at this café on a recent trip to Godalming after seeing the reviews on TA. We had a lovely lunch - their all-day vegi breakfast was great! Their selection of food was fantastic and it all looked really fresh, tasty and well presented. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend it - they are what you would like all cafes to be like!
