We had looked at a few places in the Alberta Arts area, but asked the concierge at the Doubletree for a recommendation and glad we did. This obviously local place had fantastic food and great prices. Mom had the Fancy Pants Bacon Mac-n-cheese, spouse had the oysters and I couldn't decide between two pastas so I let server Nathan decide.... More

Milo's was highly recommended by our innkeeper, and because it was nearby, we went for dinner. Our meals were fresh, delicious and very enjoyable. We especially loved the seafood. A few nights later, we decided to go back again for dinner. Both times, we were well taken care of by our server, Nathan. After dining, we learned from our innkeeper... More

For all the stars and rave reviews Milo's City Cafe gets, I expected even their simple breakfast to be great, but not so. I'm a big potato lover, and theirs were hard squares of deep fried, possibly frozen, dry nuggets. Potato lovers would do better to go elsewhere for breakfast.

Another trip to the Lloyd Center area means a visit to Milo's. I think their breakfasts are the best in the area. Portions tend to be large, which some people like, but the many choices, including twists on classic dishes like eggs Benedict and omelets, are worth trying and perhaps sharing if you prefer smaller portions. Coffee is good, service... More

Redd was an amazing server ! The food was unbelievably fabulous !!!! I had the peach mimosa - my hubby and I could not decide on what to try and did not want to order the same thing ! So he ordered the salmon Benedict and I ordered the crab. Knowing we were going to share Redd had our plates... More

This is the place to go for eggs anyway you want them. They have everything from omelets to waffles to french toast and more. I had basted eggs which can be tricky but that were cooked prefectly. Pototoes were chunky style with onions and lovely seasonings. We will eat there again, no doubt. Also, our waiter was delightful--friendly and helpful.

It's impossible to go wrong here. But I especially love the saganaki; I lived on Crete for 18 months, and this is the best I've had outside of Greece.

Milo's was highly recommended to me, and after I sat down by the window, I probably stared too obviously at other people's food. I even asked a couple about what they thought about their sandwiches. I'm not usually such a pest; but I've had some great meals in Portland, and I suppose I was more worried than usual that I'd... More
