good ol comfort food, love millie, best place, bad service, great brunch spot, bad food, reasonable prices
This coffee shop is always so busy, especially for weekend breakfast. They even have vegetarian biscuits and gravy!
Brunch Good for Me, but not my Buddy.
I showed up Sunday morning around 11:30am and waited to be seated outside for only a few minutes.
I asked the waitress if she would recommend the vegetarian reuben. She barely said a word about it other than it was a sandwich (brilliant). So I ordered the tofu scramble.
My dish was delicious; spinach, tofu and peppers with a little spice. No tabasco needed. It was one of the better tofu scrambles I have had and it was a healthy serving for $9.
My friend ordered a BLT and was shocked it didn't come with turkey. In addition to that, it was not the type of sandwich that was worth $10+
She requested turkey and they brought her a side with a ton of turkey on a plate and tried charging her $4.50 for it. She got it docked down to $2.50.
She felt the waitress was inadequate . . . she was purely functional. An empty vessel with no soul.
There was a gentleman that checked on us, gave her dog water, went out of his way to make sure we were happy. I wish he got our tip.
I also liked everyone that sat next to us, so its a neat little spot.
Bad, bad service, awesome food.. The food is as delicious as the service is horrible. Every single time I've gone I've sat at a table for at least 10 minutes before a server even came by the table (even if there are less than 5 tables sat!). Once the order is taken don't expect to see the server again until your food comes. Once they bring the food ask for anything you'll need cuz you won't see them till they drop the check. The bussers are awesome! They help you with everything else if you give them puppy dog eyes. =) I'd still go just because the food's that good. I just wish I could tip the bussers instead of the servers. They seem to do alot of nothing.
come hungry, leave slowly.
omigod i'm full.
Happy mess, devil's mess, rosemary potatoes, coffee, bacon. And waffles, too.
This is breakfast, and really done right.
Our server was very nice, although a little overwhelmed, but it didn't seem to affect things too much.
Food is delicious, and ample. You actually get what you pay for.
Millie's has a neighborhood feel, and you find yourself in conversations with those around you as you pass the tapatio and syrup back and forth; this is a good thing, unless you're the hollywood type that avoids talking to lesser beings.
Perfect on any sunday, or any day you want to feel like sunday.
Great Breakfast/Lunch Spot in Silver Lake.
Millie's is a fantastic choice for breakfast or lunch in Silver Lake. Try the Eleanor R. special for breakfast -- the rosemary potatoes with eggs, cheese, guacamole, salsa and sour cream will get you coming back for more. Another highlight are the banana walnut pancakes -- yummy! I've also had the BLT for lunch, which was fantastic.
On top of the food, it's a great spot to enjoy the sunshine at one of the sidewalk tables. Also great for Silver Lake people watching. One tip -- like all breakfast spots in Silver Lake (and probably everywhere else on the planet) get there early or late unless you want to wait for a table.
The only place to have breakfast in Silver Feliz. For years I enjoyed the food at Millie's sister location in Richmond, VA. So, when able to visit Los Angeles I had a destination in mind. Neeedless to say I was not disapppointed, but I will say it anyways, I was not disappointed! Everytime I make the trip to see the women I love (i am from Utah) I grab my fiance by the hand and we go visit my second love MILLIES. Try the turkey tacos and bring an appetite.
Great hole in a wall place. Ever since my boyfriend took me to this dive, I've been craving their food whenever the lazy weekend rolls around. Maybe its all that time sitting at the counter where you watch those cooks working up a sweat to conjure up plates after plates of good ol' comfort food. I have tried their signature dish the devil's mess, banana walnut pancakes, and huevos rancheros and my, my I always end up satisfied and wanting more and more each weekend that passes. (I swear the people there must recognize our faces since we are always at the counter--its the best place to see what kind of dish you want to order for the next time your are there). The prices are reasonable considering they give you a pretty hefty portion. It does get pretty full during peak hours especially if you want to eat outside. If you want to save time, watch some good action in the kitchen, and not mind smelling like the grill then the counter is good for you. The service is great--they are very attentive and always ready to give you more water or coffee. Beware of parking though. Don't park in the strip mall next door, we almost got towed on our 4th visit!
ROUTE 66 ICON. Folks...this was one of the highlights during our Route 66 trip. The grilled cheese sandwich I got one one of the best I have ever eaten! I would recommend it to anyone...and I'm an out of towner. Just go an enjoy.
Good greasy spoon. Any of the egg breakfasts with potatoes are great. You can't go wrong.
Old Faithful. It's true the place is not pristine, and that parking can be a hassle, but the food is good, the prices are reasonable, and the service is dependable. I especially like the breakfast scrambles and tuna melts. Yum!
Best Breakfast in LA!. My boyfriend just brought me there a few weeks back and I have to say Millie's is one of the best breakfast spots I've tried in all of LA. It's inexpensive and everything seems homemade. I love it.
