“Great Food but Terrible Service”
Reviewed 6 October 2013 via mobile

The food is delicious and there are loads of options. A favourite is the Bliss Burger and espresso milkshake. The downside is the poor service. Having come here countless times, I consistently get treated as though they don't like customers.

“Wow... Just wow”
Reviewed 6 October 2013 via mobile

This is the best cafe I've ever been too and I eat out a lot. It's a vegetarian place but I really didn't feel anything was missing. Best veggie burgers I've ever had, coffee was amazing and the brownie made me want to move to Milton. Fantastic

“Laid back, fresh and tasty.....”
Reviewed 18 September 2013

Dropped in here for a quick bite of lunch while heading down the South Coast. Milton is an interesting little town with some quirky shops and restaurants, and Pilgrim's certainly fits that bill.

The restaurant itself is nothing flash, but you get the feeling that this is a place for the locals to hang out. That's not to say however that the staff aren't welcoming to visitors. In fact we found the service very relaxed and friendly.

There are various surfboards and other interesting art works on the walls, and comfy cushions on the bench seats. There is outdoor seating, but the day we were there the weather wasn't the best, so we sat inside in the cosy interior.

Now to the food......This is a mainly vegetarian restaurant though apparently they also do Mexican food at night. The specialty of the house is their vegetarian burgers and they are very special. I had their "Bliss" burger and found it to be very aptly named. I also had a taste of the "Millenium" and it was also excellent. The burgers are enormous and packed full of fresh and healthy stuff. Who knew healthy eating could taste this good?

Pilgrim's also has a wide choice of freshly squeezed juices and smoothies, and we can confirm that they make great coffee.

Yes, this will definitely be my go-to place for lunch on the South Coast.

“Best vegie burgers in Australia?”
Reviewed 11 August 2013

I've been here dozens of times - and often go out of my way to visit if I am within an hour or two drive on the south coast. I have not had a better vegie burger anywhere. The place also does lovely fresh juices, decent coffee - and nice mexican food in the evenings. I take friends here frequently (even those who would normally not even consider vegetarian food) and none have ever been disappointed.

“Great Vegetarian Cafe”
Reviewed 29 May 2013

Pilgrim's has a great range of vegetarian wraps, hamburgers and pies. Also do juices and smoothies. Open for breakfast and lunch and dinner Thurs/Fri/Sat. Can sit inside or out. Staff really friendly and make you feel welcome. Nice homemade biscuits (Anzacs, Brownies) to go with coffee.
