    The sun suddenly came out for a bright and perfect evening after a dreary, rainy day. There's no better place to enjoy a nice surprise like this than Spring Mill Cafe, so we went out for an unplanned treat - and we got it! The specials included a quail salad appetizer and drumfish on couscous, which sounded so good we had them both after some chicken liver pâté with a nice white Burgundy (that we we remembered to bring as we were about the close our front door). We even had 2 desserts - macarons for my wife and mango apricot sorbet for me. It was a fun, relaxed, delicious meal and a great evenging spent with the convivial owner and the skilled, attentive, friendly and interesting staff. Thanks once again, SMC!!

    We enjoyed the excellent offerings that included the delicious corn soup, the roasted zucchini, escargot, the rabbit stew, the endive salad, the orange cake topped off with perfect cups of cafe au lait and cappuccino. Our server was gracious and attentive, ably guided by the owner. No wonder that this restaurant has served as a Philadelphia dining out model for many decades.

    My party of 8 was seated in a small private room, which added to the experience. The host suggested that we start with platters of pates and cheeses, which were excellent and also expedited ordering. Dishes we had included rabbit, bastille, and a fish special -- again, all nicely prepared and presented. And desserts were terrific.

    We had just had our memorial service for the passing of our dad when we decided to go to celebrate him at Spring Mill Café. Everything was wonderful. The pace of the food being brought out, the kind and wonderful servers and the amazing food just made our heartfelt celebration even more special.

    This was our first time at Spring Mill and we had such a nice time. We were greeted the second we walked in by the owner and taken to our table. Our server was really friendly and answered all our questions about the menu and nothing was too much trouble. We took our friends fir their birthdays and we all loved our dinners and had a great time. A really nice, cozy restaurant!!! Will definitely go back!!!

    It had been decades since dining here and it did not disappoint. The soupe du jour, carrot curry, was delightful. My husband ordered salade d'endives and for me salade de bettraves. For entrees we ordered lapin a la moutarde and bastilla marocaine. We had 7pm concert tickets at Stoneleigh so skipped dessert. Ezra, our server, was easy going and provided just the right amount of attention to ensure we enjoyed our dining experience. Casual atmosphere, delicious french fare and byo. Treat yourself!

    We sat outside on a beautiful day. Too bad the traffic noise was so loud. Sit inside. Everyone liked the food. However, I had the chicken dish: Bastilla Marocaine Stony Hill Farm free range chicken, egg, and almonds, spiced with cinnamon and turmeric, baked in filo pastry, served with a Israeli couscous and garnished with spicy harissa The chicken filling was too dry for me. Don’t forget, it’s a BYOB. I had to run out to buy wine.

    I have loved The Spring Mill Cafe for years. However last night it was really poor. If you eat outside, the noise level is lousy with trucks and traffic but that is expected. However it was the food that was so poor. The pate was tasteless, the chicken morrocan "pie" was incredibly dry as though it was days old and reheated and the orange cake had a bad bitter taste, again very dry, and had absolutely no orange taste to it. Even the rolls had been overheated to the extent that the crust had to be sawed to cut into it. When we said something to the waiter, he became really annoyed, immediately. Probably not the first complaint. We will not go back. There was not one redeeming part to the meal. It is such a shame because it was always wonderful in the past.

    This was our first trip back to Spring Mill Cafe in many years and we were satisfied enough to give it another try in the near future. My wife's salad with poached shrimp was quite good, but my grilled asparagus appetizer was lacking flavor from the vinagrette. We both had the baked cod with shell fish and risotto, but were underwhelmed. The mussels added to the dish were overcooked and tasteless. Overall the dish was on the bland side. Next time we will probably go with one of their meat entrees. Fortunately both desserts--lemon cheesecake, and flourless chocolate cake were excellent.

    My party of 3 went for brunch. Food was exquisite (appetizer, entree, coffee, bread). Dessert was little pricey. We sent on the outside porch so road noise was loud but if you sit inside noise level is low. Recommend for anyone who likes traditional French food. The menu is not large but the meals they prepare they do really well.

    We enjoyed our Mothers Day Dinner t Spring Mill Cafe. The service was excellent. The appetizers were very good - I had a salad of the day and hubby had soup. The rolls were just okay. We both had the filet mignon which was cooked as ordered but would have preferred some type of potato on the side instead of the pureed parsnip. We ordered the vegetable of the day to share. I suspect this was a way to increase prices. We enjoyed our desserts and coffee although I don't think they came around to see if we wanted more coffee - I was at the restroom so not sure. Very nice dinner.

    I took my mother to Mother’s Day brunch. The service was mediocre at best. Our waiter was barely audible. The food was lack luster. My salad was a few leaves with a mound of walnuts and a few pears and crumbles of blue cheese. My “green”shakshuka, was simply awful, and my cheesecake was frozen. All in all it was enough to make me question whether or not I would go back. I was truly surprised as I have had many great meals there and great service in the past. Maybe brunch just isn’t their thing.
