My husband and I ate here for breakfast one morning, and we were pleasantly surprised! It doesn't look like much from the road, but once we were inside, we fell in love with this restaurant's charm. Our server, Lisa, was an absolute sweetheart. She was very attentive to us, ensuring our food was good and our drinks were full. The... More

Was pleasantly surprised when visiting the Mills. Small on the inside, but very cozy with fun decor. Huge menu, I didn't even know where to start! Food was excellent, as well as the service. Coffee and water served immediately upon sitting is not common these days. Try the skillet breakfasts. Owners were clearly present, also very friendly. Can't wait to... More

Not good, first (& probably last) visit. Huevos Ranchero were cold, French toast also cold, thankfully coffee was hot! Waitress stated coffee and tea were endless but only brought hot water when Jane asked for more tea?? Not worth $30 for 2 breakfasts!

Mark F, Owner at The Mills Restaurant, responded to this review

We're sorry you decided to write a negative review rather than allow us to try to satisfy you when you voiced your displeasure. In the interest of accuracy for those reading, the Rancheros is a dish with both hot, and chilled elements, the carnitas, eggs and tortillas are served hot, whereas the home made pic de gallo, corn and black...

I'm a local and pop in and out for breakfast at different times of the year. Food is consistently good, usually crowded, but a bit pricey.

This is a hidden gem! The breakfasts are fantastic, the food is always fresh and served in abundance, and the service is very good. The only down side is that you often have to wait during the summer months (not usually too long, and worth it!). This is an old family favorite!

We have stopped by several times. This time it was for lunch. Coffee was good. The server suggested the (seasonal) squash soup. So we tried it and we also had a grilled cheese sandwich. Both were very good. The grilled cheeze was nice browned and had been on the grill long enough so that the cheeze was beautifully warmed through... More

Stopped at Mills while passing by on our way west. Good catch, everything appears to be home made and by someone who knows what they are doing. Pancakes were nice and light and the home fries were great. My wife hit the jackpot with her selection of French toast, that had almonds embedded in it and fresh strawberries on the... More

Perfect size place, amazing food and the staff was quite pleasant. Lisa was amazing, definitely a new favorite. Small inside but just how we like it. It gets busy so the earlier you get there the better. We didn't have a wait. Just fantastic!

The are a number of decent breakfast places on the Upper Cape, but this is hands down the best of the group. We have enjoyed a good number of their breakfast and lunch dishes and none has ever disappointed. Local ingredients and very friendly staff make it extra special.

Off the beaten path and a bit of a wait on weekends but definitely a great place for breakfast on the mid-Cape.
