The Mills Restaurant, Marstons Mills, MA

28 06 2012

The Mills is one of those timeless breakfast spots. Off of the main Cape Cod drag and quaintly-decorated in an Americana fashion, it is a restaurant that could appear in any decade, in any quiet, rural community.

Nothing on the menu is going to absolutely blow your mind, but you’ll still be satisfied with what you get. I really enjoy their many steel-cut oatmeal options (something you don’t find in many breakfast places). You can get it with yogurt, fruit, nuts, honey, basically whatever you want. And on some days, they offer a breakfast specials menu that does step things up a notch; cream cheese pancakes with blueberries, lobster scampi omelettes, etc.

Chocolate Chip Banana Pancakes

The chocolate chip banana pancakes were delicious, but would have liked a bit more pancake for the $8 and change price tag. Also enjoyed this breakfast special; 2 poached eggs atop a  bed of bell peppers, onions and tomatoes. This isn’t four-star dining, but it is a simple, country breakfast that hits the spot and I respect it for that.

Poached Eggs Peperonata

Plus, when you’re done dining at the Mills, you can go for a dip or take a kayak out at one of the many ponds & lakes right down the street. My favorite summer adventure: paddling out at Indian Lakes, passing through the thin gap that leads into Mystic Lake and exploring the island in the middle. I guess I enjoy Cape Cod sometimes…
