I frequent this restaurant a lot so it's hard to order "something new." Everything I do eat here is great. The biscuits are HUGE and they are delicious with the raspberry jam. There's usually a wait but they get you in and out fairly quickly without any issues.

....stay for the food. Expect to spend an hour and a half for breakfast on the weekends: 24 to 30 minute wait for a table, then about an hour to order, get served and eat. With that in mind, the food is very food: lots of it. Service is good and the servers are quite proficient and friendly. Two of us had the Milltown Breakfast: eggs, bacon, grits and a biscuit (and, it is a huge homemade biscuit!!!); lots of good food!!!! One in our party had biscuits and gravy....it must be good because that is all he eats. Out last member had the vegetable and potato hash which comes with two poached eggs and a biscuit too....she took half home and said it is quite good.

This place is extremely crowded on the weekends and parking can be tough to find. Definitely worth the wait though since the food is excellent. Can't rave enough about the biscuits!!!!

First time visit. The menu was largely breakfast, but I had the work week lunch special, 1/2 sandwich (BLT) side (soup) and salad (BLT). Great price for the lunch I was served! The soup, creamy chicken with cuban pepper (I think was the name) was teriffic! Must have had at least 1/2 chicken breast in it, very tasty. Thick cut bacon on the sourdough bread sandwich, wonderful salad not overloaded with dressing, done right and very good as well. Our waiter Garrett was friendly and helpful. Parking is limited and it was busy (which is a good thing when choosing a lunch stop), but I would certainly eat here again.
