Millie’s Cafe

$$$$
Written by
Perfect For: Breakfast Brunch

Millie’s Cafe looks and feels like nothing else in Silver Lake. Its neighbors are a luxury clothing store, a day spa, and an exercise studio for people who don’t want to sweat, yet Millie’s definitely hasn’t been updated since 1934. Their “dining room” is mostly a sidewalk cafe plus a few indoor tables, and everyone here is likely wearing sweats. You’ll see groups of friends recovering from rough nights out, couples cozied up, and plenty of regulars just reading a book. All of this on any day of the week, at any time. Millie’s is consistently busy, but it never turns into a scene.

People come here for the perfect breakfast comfort food. Order the Devil’s Mess - it’s a huge omelette, filled with lots of cheese and sausage that is just the right amount of spicy. If you’re into benedicts, the one here’s pretty great too, a rare sight in the world of Silver Lake brunch.

Devil’s Mess

This is a giant plate of eggs, cheese, cajun-spiced turkey sausage, and guacamole, with rosemary potatoes on the side. It’s our favorite thing here, although probably not spicy enough to warrant using the Devil in the title. We’d maybe go for Recently-Promoted Demon’s Mess. (Promoted because it made a very good breakfast.)

Crab Benedict

Little mountains of crab smothered with hollandaise. Unlike the Alps, these are not the prettiest mountains to look at. But also unlike the Alps, they taste incredible.

Chilaquiles Benedict

Millie’s does a straight chilaquiles plate, but you should take this opportunity to order the chilaquiles benedict. The beef is tender and rich, and also we will take that green chili hollandaise in IV form, please.

Chocolate Chip Pancakes

If you’re not ordering these as your breakfast, you should be ordering them as your breakfast dessert. Add the strawberries and bananas, because you’re a smart person.

Angel’s Mess

The vegan version of the Devil’s Mess, because Angels are apparently vegan. It tastes fine, but the vegetable sausage could use a lot more spice. If you don’t want to eat meat or dairy, there are better options on the menu.
