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.

The food was absolutely amazing! We took family visiting from out of town and they were very impressed with the cuisine! From the appetizers to the entrees to the dessert; each course was exceptional! The service was prompt but never intrusive. We appreciated the attention to detail. It was a lovely late summer evening and we sat outside on the porch which was delightful. The only minor downside was the occasional traffic noise from BarennHill road. A pause in the conversation was needed to wait for a loud car or motorcycle to pass. Not horrible by any means. What a wonderful restaurant!

Menu is limited - Just the French country classics, but oddly no chicken main dishes. Filet mignon was perfect and also enjoyed chicken liver pate. Server was stiff with no interaction. Ambiance is excellent inside, but patio area needs more attention to improve ambiance.

Spring Mill Cafe on a humid Sunday evening was delightful. We sat outside but under cover. Service was attentive and the food ( crab salad, tomato salad, black bean soup and the lamb stew entree) were consistently excellent.
Hard to beat Spring Mill Cafe for an easy and tasty Sunday evening dinner with friends!

Excellent execution of well-curated menu. Escargot tender and the best I've had anywhere from Boston to DC in years. Delicious rabbit entree, and wonderful fresh desserts.

Lovely to eat outside-a bit of noise from the road tho. Wait staff friendly and the service very prompt-almost too fast! The appetizers and main courses were excellent, dessert very good. Overall a pleasant experience. Would rerun.

Celebrated our 2nd year wedding anniversary and couldn’t have picked a better place. Food was amazing and authentically French. The escargots were as good as can be and the filet melted like butter. Great service too!!!

Para nuestro aniversario de boda número 37, como en muchas otras ocasiones por décadas, el lugar, el ambiente, la calidad de la comida y también el servicio nos hacen volver, como haremos en septiembre para un cumpleaños—no tenemos dinero para comer ahí todos los días, pero vamos cuando podemos. A mí me gusta más el menú de Tinto, pero el ambiente y la mesa afuera, al lado de las flores, en Spring Mill Café nos hace elegirlo con más frecuencia que los demás.

Excellent food and a nice atmosphere. Waitress was a little spacey and forgot some basic things like cream and sugar for my coffee and asking if I wanted a refill. The value parking pulled so hard on our handbrake that it got stuck for a while, but fortunately we were able to resolve the problem. BYOB is a nice perk. Food is unusual and inspired. I would recommend it for a special occasion.

The sautéed kale was terrible. The cook had not removed the stalks which rendered it inedible. In addition, the brand did not not go well with the halibut which was delicious. So was the shrimp appetizer.

Spring Mill Cafe is a wonderful dining area experience. Good food and service. Delightful spot. Our guest had been at Spring Mill Cafe one other time so this was a special treat. A gift certificate given to us was an added bonus. Love, love, love Spring Mill Cafe

It was so nice to go back to this wonderful restaurant ... We went for brunch and, as always, the service was impeccable. We were mostly happy with our dishes. My Shakshouka was not as I expected, but tasty. I expected the eggs to be poached with the vegetables .... There are so many variations on this but I think it would've been tastier prepared that way.

We'll be back for sure!
