Stopped by for lunch while passing through. My fish taco was very good followed by a very good cappuccino. My husband didn't enjoy his food as much. Pleasant service. Reasonable price. Good location.

Stopped in here for the first time today for lunch. We were very pleasantly surprised and our lunch exceeded our expectations. From the decor, the warm greeting at the door, the excellent service and fantastic food we will definitely be back for dinner sometime.

Just 15 minutes outside the blue mountain manufactured village is a real, authentic and fun find. Beautiful location in a funky old building with an amazing vibe. But it gets better when you try the food. Friendly service. Recommend as a must visit.

My husband and I had a late lunch at The Mill Café over the long weekend. The restaurant was very busy however, they were able to accommodate us.

Visiting some friends in the Beaver Valley we went exploring and ended up in Thornbury for lunch. Lots of variety on the menu and multiple GF options. Food and service were both excellent. Highly recommend.

Had a delicious dinner on Sat night. Our group ordered venison, duck confit and cod. We all really enjoyed our meals. Service was good once the confusion over our reservation was solved. We definitely will be back.

We stopped in for lunch. This is a very nice restaurant. Lunch included a chicken taco and a pulled pork grill cheese that was spectacular! The soup was apple squash and was delicious. A nice classy gourmet restaurant.
