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.

Not welcoming! Stoic faces! My pork chop was overcooked. It felt different, not for the better, than prior visits to the Cafe

First visit. Everything was great. We ate inside I think it might be a bit noisy outside since they are close to the street.

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!

Spring Mill Cafe is a decade plus favorite of ours. Ambience varies greatly by table and we were in the smaller back room last night which was a bit loud (that obviously varies by fellow diners....). However, the food was delicious, as is usually the case, and their menu is always interesting and different. French and Moroccan influences (we had rabbit and Tanjine respectively) - it is not your standard menu but that is what makes Spring Mill special for us. It is never the same old same old. Christina our server was funny and responsive (told us her name was Kim if were not happy with the service :-) We were. The daffodil cake is a favorite of the Mrs. A truly unique take on this type of cake and delicious (don't tell but she likes a piece to go to have for breakfast :-) Anyway, we will be back again and again, as always.

Food and service were exquisite--the staff was very informed and professional. The food is somewhat expensive--even bringing our own wine we spent $65 per person--but it was delicious from start to finish, and portion size was just right. The only negative was the noise from the road on the front porch--it only detracted from the evening a tiny amount (like 3% of the time)--but the road is quite close and when an exceptionally loud motorcycle or car went by it was jarring and stopped conversation for a few seconds. But we'd all go back in a heartbeat.

What an EXPERIENCE!
I thank God for beautiful weather to enjoy the outdoor eating in this peaceful and well mannered cafe. Amanda was definitely a Super-host aka Manager. So excited, I arrived 24hrs early for my reservations and she made great accommodations and sat me on the porch as Louis waited on me....Excellent Service Louis - thank you. He was well knowledgeable of the menu and was attentive. So the next night (day of my actual reservation) I was seated on the porch of the barn....yes an actual barn back in the day turned house turned restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating - beautiful. Now tonight Nathan was amazing!!! So eloquent, polite, attentive and managed the staff with ease. The entire staff worked as a team- kudos to everyone and the management. This is my new spot!!! Parking on premises and the prices were fair for the quality and service and ambiance. Great Experience 💙 ps ...order dessert first, try the rabbit, definitely order the salmon salad appetizer and come ready to tip - they deserve it. Awesomeness!!

Menu is a bit over the top so not for the plain foods type.
Rabbit? Lamb stew on a 100 degree day? Salmon was delicious, pork chop was good.
But limited choices for most of us.

Terrific french inspired cuisine in a farm house setting. Only drawback is porch dining tables next to the road with cars speeding by.

Mediocre food: tasteless tomatoes; insipid beet salad; poorly prepared steak; spiritless desserts; hideous/burnt coffee. Plus, inattentive service. The worst quality-to-price ratio we’ve experienced in many, many years. Avoid.

I was on site and talked to every table, and wish you would have let me know how horrible everything was. The only feed back I got was that the tomatoes were delicious, the beet salad was tasty, perfectly cooked grass fed tenderloin, wonderful desserts made with love, yummy fresh pots of La Colombe coffee..... Enjoy the beautiful summer and hopefully you will find a restaurant that suits you. Cheers! Ezra Haines

Ezra and the Spring Mill staff went above and beyond for our family on Father's Day even though they were very busy. I am very grateful. We always know we are going to have wonderful service and delicious food but they always surprise us. This is why it is a favorite.

Grilled octopus appetizer was not freshly grilled; pre-cooked, and cold; tough/chewy. Never had grilled octopus served cold before. Filet mignon was very good.
