BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — Milt’s Coffee Shop has a new owner, but a visit last week assured me the food hasn’t changed — it’s as hearty and delicious as ever.
Serving home-style cuisine for nearly 60 years on Knudsen Drive off Highway 99, Milt’s, along with other local favorites Cope’s Knotty Pine and 24th Street Cafe, can be relied upon for a great breakfast or lunch.
Last weekend I had a hamburger steak (extra for onions and peppers), crispy hash browns, eggs and biscuits and gravy. I was particularly impressed by the steak, large and full of flavor.
The service, as usual, was fantastic. My waiter was friendly and funny and seemed to have a sixth sense when I finished my coffee, appearing to refill the cup almost as soon as I put it down. The staff at Milt’s deserves special mention for making customers feel welcome.
