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.

Spring Mill Cafe has been a favourite more or less since Michelle opened up. Looking for a place for an anniversary dinner, and GOING OUT it was an easy choice and fully met expectations

Our recent brunch was perfect. Our waitress was in training on her first day, and was being onboarded so nicely that there were no frustrations for us. The food was outstanding, the place was bustling, but at a low hum, indoors and out. The setting continues to be a really special, out of the way, French country charmer. Highly recommend!

Small, quaint country restaurant feel. Sea bass was cooked perfectly, flaky and tender. Tried the last pate that I haven't tasted there yet, the chicken liver pate. Like the others it was fresh, pink and tasted smooth and creamy.
I keep going back is the best recommendation I can give.

Always lovely! Delicious sea bass and perfectly cooked rack of lamb. We went for the first time in a long while (because of the COVID-19 pandemic), and we were impressed by the social distancing measures in place. (There is outdoors dining, but we chose indoors.) Nathan is a charming host--and feels like an old friend now!--and he is in control of what's going on in the dining areas at all times. Service is there when you need it, but never intrusive.

We ate outside. It is a nice setup for outside dining. The one negative is the street noise from cars speeding on the road.

Delicious food and atmosphere. Unbeatable. Serving staff was inexperienced. Probably due to restaurant not being open in over a year. Staff was very pleasant.

Escargot and a beet salad to start, followed by rack of lamb and a pan seared striped bass. Excellent food and attentive service! We’ve driven past for years and finally decided to book a table and are glad we did! Definitely recommended!

We had the most wonderful experience at Spring Mill Cafe last night. We sat inside because we wanted to get the full ambiance and it was worth it! Nathan was a knowledgeable, efficient and friendly waiter. The building does not lack in character and the food is simply Devine. It is small and quaint inside exactly what we were looking for, a great neighborhood spot! If we are ever in the area again we would definitely go!

A great spot. Only complaint was the front door was open and it was 50 degrees outside. They did close it upon request but it was uncomfortably cold until then.

Food was fabulous, as always. Servers were attentive and maintained appropriate safety measures. It was a lovely evening to eat outdoors, although the traffic noise is annoying (nothing the restaurant can do about that), and the chairs are not very comfortable.

I enjoyed our outdoor lunch very much. Our daughter has a severe food allergy which they were able to accommodate.
Sitting outside and admiring the garden was nice but the road was very busy.
Would dine again.
