The food is wonderful and creative, both healthy and luscious, definitely can tell everything is made just for you. Hints of European. The place is very small. The food is so good, we wish they had a few more seats (but not too many). They have gelato.

Yesterday my wife and I had lunch at the May Cafe. What a nice find in downtown Milford. My wife a capreze sandwich and tomato bisque soup and I had a walnut chicken salad sandwich with clam chowder. Both were delicious. I nice comfortable pplce with modest prices.

Although the restaurant is tiny, a new deck has been added for nice weather. The food is really great! Highly recommend!

Hunting for somewhere to eat we accidently found this place. It looks like someone's house. I guess they have a local clientele and arent interested in more business,there is a tiny sign on the door. Anyway the outdoor dining area is very nice. Kind of crowded to eat inside as the people waiting in line are gawking at your food.... More

My son and I stopped in for breakfast (because we have heard such great things about this place) and enjoyed our breakfast outside on the back patio. The people running this place are so nice and the food was fantastic. I just wish they would open a little earlier like maybe 8 am.

Still providing the best coffee and sandwiches in town. It now has 2 shady outside seating areas. One at the rear and one at the side.

The best salmon sandwich ever! Charming place, looks like a French Cafe. Great to seat outside during summer.

Wasn't planning on coffee here, but the other spot in Milford was closed. So glad it was! Had a huge caramel macchiato in a latte cup and a toasted croissant with ricotta cheese and delicious raspberry jam! Sat out front and enjoyed the conversation and the morning!

I had the Cafe Salad, which was fabulous. The romaine lettuce was crisp & perfect (no sad looking pieces of lettuce). My sister had the pick 2: half of chicken salad sandwich & arugula salad. Delicious! My brother liked his roast beef sub. The bread is fresh. The lunch plates came with with nice watermelon slice. The iced tea was... More

Love this place for its home-made deliciousness. We often stop here for lunch and have never been disappointed. It's refreshing to taste freshly made items rather than overly processed food. Wish there were more places like this. Highly recommend.
