The Spring Mill Café has been serving French country fare since 1978. We're a BYO that serves lunch, dinner and Sunday brunch. The historic property features the original Spring Mill general store, and the picturesque converted farmhouse. When the weather is nice, guests are invited to dine outdoors adjacent the gardens, either on the patio or on one of the porches.

Lovely elegant setting with great food and attentive service. One criticism: for a place this pricey and special, they should have cloth table clothes, not paper.

We thoroughly enjoy our visits to the Spring Mill Cafe. That explains why we always go there to celebrate special occasions, such as
My birthday last Sunday. We were not disappointed. It is like visiting old friends, and the food is always very good. Allan& Linda

I always like SMC but it gets quite noisy when crowded. Also, I do wish the menu offered more variety. Service is absolutely perfect!

Everything was very good-food, service, ambiance, etc. I have been there many times before. The only negative was the wailing of a young child who was not ready for PRIME TIME. And, as you know in the front room noise travels.

About as perfect a restaurant as we've been to in a very long time. The setting is beautiful, the service was spectacular and the food was even better. Hard to imagine just how delicious a pate could be but it was. The filet was simply amazing, melt in your mouth perfection. The butterfish was like eating something you've never tasted before and craved more. All in all this place is perfection. We only wish we lived closer so we could come back often!

When we need to remember how great life can be, we head for Spring Mill Cafe to flee the crazy world for a few hours......and it works every time! It took 3 appetizers and two large entrees to get us both to that higher plane, but we didn’t count calories and feel no guilt :). I had a few cheeses while my wife enjoyed a large salad, after which we shared a wonderful pate plate. We don’t usually get burgers, but we were both in the mood - so I had the traditional beef and my wife had the falafel burger. Both were big, delicious, and beautiful! A little wine was all we needed to add for a stellar Saturday lunch.

Spring Mill is one of those very special places where the food is fantastic, the service is excellent and you feel as if you are transported off to a little corner of the French countryside. Lisa, our server, was particularly wonderful. She cares about the customer and is also enthusiastic about the food and its preparation.....great combination.
We look forward to another special evening in the farm house!
Thank you!

Great food excellent service and a wonderful ambience of rustic bistro
The restaurant is managed by a family first mother now son with deep roots of French and Moroccan good and culture. I can tell being French Moroccan myself
The byob allows you to bring your favorite wine as a couple or a group or family reunions in the cabin across
Don’t miss this unique restaurant but don’t tell too many people or the crowds will spoil the experience...hahah...

Been going to Spring Mill for over 30 years; was a first date for my husband and me. We are now regulars for dinner along with my girlfriends for monthly lunches. Never disappointed. Friendly professional services, excellent menu with well prepared meals; the atmosphere is authentically classy, rustic and French. Superb!

Thank you Spring Mill!

Sunday lunch al fresco on the porch at SMC is one of life's great pleasures. The kale salad with pumpkin squash was so good we each had one, followed by grilled trout for my wife and steak & eggs for me. The ingredients are absolutely top notch - the grass fed beef they use is as fine as any we've had in the US, and the trout was as tasty as it was gorgeous. Espresso and ice cream for dessert made this a perfect main meal for the day. As always, the staff are engaging and interesting people as well as highly skilled at their jobs. We love SMC!!!

Lisa was an excellent hostess and server.
She gave us a tour of the buildings.
The food is outstanding.
We were not rushed through our meal and ended up having a four hour business lunch, dessert and all.

It's a great BYOB restaurant. The food is unique and the menu changes seasonally. Everything is fresh and they have quite a few gluten free options.

We like the food,atmosphere and service. Lisa was our server and I owe her a gratuity ($40.00). The next time we're with you, I'll give it to her. My mistake.

Always a treat! Love the rustic setting and the wonderful food. We enjoyed the duck rillettes, a cheese board, locally sourced filet mignon and the most amazing Moroccan bastilla. Everything was wonderful. I’ll be dreaming of that bastilla until the next time we eat at Spring Mill. Merci beaucoup!

Spring Mill Cafe is one of the best restaurants in the Philadelphia area. The buildings are reminiscent of a French farmhouse, the food reflects some of the best French cuisine, and the staff is helpful and friendly. Highly recommend the Sunday brunch—everything is delicious on the menu—where many of the dishes feature a country roasted ham, and the eggs Benedict have the definition of a perfect hollandaise. The desserts are a must—Orange Cake à la Mode, Montmorency, and Daffodil Cake. Other highlights: Salade de Bettraves (beet salad) and the Pot au Feu (boneless short rib). This place is a MUST.

Saturday during restaurant week so a little delayed at each service point but friendly and food was incredible. Normally they hit on all cylinders so maybe I’m spoiled
