We stopped for a light lunch at the express section and neither the food nor the service disappoint. The trout wraps were simply divine and the chicken pie just up there.

The view and service was excellent, the lemon meringue was to die for and the breakfasts average a la Wimpy. However - it was a good stop and I liked the place and the architecture.

This is a great stop on a road-trip to stretch legs and fuel up, the view is great, but the food is terrible! How on earth can even toast be inedible??!! Eggs tasteless. Really bad. Rather just have a coffee. Their cakes are better.

We had breakfast here and it was really delicious and service was excellent. A good menu with food for all tastes and meals for all the times of the day. The last time we visited Milly's was years ago before the fire destroyed it and now the re-built Milly's is much better, brighter and vibey yet retains a country feel.... More

Milly's is the only stop to considerwhen travelling between gauteng and nelspruit. It can get a bit busy at peak times but they deliver good food all the time. Omelette for breakfast is one of the best choices on the menu!! Well always stop here, remeber to buy trout at the shop!!!!

Traveling to Nelspruit for the week end we stopped for lunch . The setting by the lake is great . The food was acceptable. I do have a problem with the slow device especially when you want to get to your destination as quick as possible.

Have stopped here several times when travelling to Hazyview.In my honest opinion the best thing about it is where it is! Never been overly excited by any of the food and the service is not always the best. It's just so conveniently placed and really has no competition anywhere else
