Millie's Diner Restaurant Review

: American cuisine blends with college-town casual in an unprepossessing atmosphere. The line cooks dressed in T-shirts are positioned up by the front window so counter sitters can watch the action. If you’re seated elsewhere, you’ll miss out on some of the fun. The dinner menu changes often, but you might start with Thai spicy shrimp, then move on to seared steelhead trout with bok choy, crispy sweetbreads, smoked ham hock and ginger-mushroom broth and top it off with pumpkin gelato with caramel sauce. For lunch or brunch, specials abound, like the savory Dutch pancake with duck confit. Still, it would be a sin to bypass Devil’s Mess, an open-face omelet with spicy sausage, onions, peppers, garlic, tomatoes, melted white cheddar, avocado and a kiss of curry. Whenever you come, you’ll probably face a wait. You’ll also surely eat very well, so hang in there.
