I go here regularly, either for a coffee and chat or some of the delicious food. Super lovely owners and staff, always welcoming and accommodating. I'm a lacto intolerant vegetarian so my options aren't massive but what is on offer is really good. The home made houmous with olives and pitta is my go to choice and the soup I've... More

I would be there every day. Excellent food, the chickpea and chiritzo stew was perfect as was the homemade humus. The service was as good and they made us feel welcome.

Stopped by on a whim and treated myself to the buttermilk pancakes with strawberries, blueberries, bananas and just the right amount of maple syrup. Full of flavour, fresh fruit and fabulous maple syrup. Tiny but terrific cafe, lovely staff and very good deli selection. Will definitely be back!

Whether it for lunch or one of their once a month Friday specials, the food is very tasty and great value. The staff are always happy and attentive to make your visit enjoyable. It has the bonus of being a deli/shop.with lots of tasty products to enjoy.

Another great evening at Millys at their once a month evening bash. Such a relaxed atmosphere with brilliant staff who know how to let you relax and feel unhurried. Food was delicious - spiced lamb meatballs with cranberries and a wonderful selection of veg, salads and couscous. Can't wait for the next visit. Thanks again Millys.

Having recently discovered Millie's Deli on my maternity leave, I've been back twice in one week! I came across its surprising garden by chance which was perfect for a morning coffee in the late summer sunshine. I enjoyed it so much I went back for a light lunch twice and is now my new fave meeting place. What I like... More

Deceivingly spacious restaurant with plenty of outside tables at the rear of the building. It was a blisteringly hot September Wednesday when my wife and I decided to luncheon at Millys. We both chose the ham baguette with smoked cheese, vine tomatoes and green salad with mayonnaise and tea for two. Very tasty and plentiful fillings in a nice crispy... More

I love Millie's and so brought my husband there for lunch last week to celebrate his birthday. My lunch was delicious. I had the trio of salads and fresh gazpacho. My husband's lunch was excellent- he had the marmalade glazed ham baguette. Both my sons each devoured the children's sausage and beans plate. We finished with the Victoria sponge-moist and... More

Always love coming to Millys. The food is fantastic and the service is always friendly. The deli offers the best choice of cheese in Leigh. Millys is cosy and the garden is really pretty. It's not the cheapest but you'll never be pressurised to eat up so just relax and enjoy the experience.

I came here for lunch with my boyfriend recently. To start the tables were so wobbly that I almost spilled my drink lots of times. The menu was limited which was half expected but they had also run out of a few things. We both ordered a ciabatta which had one sorry bit of ham inside and literally 5 crisps... More

Dear Maddie M, Let me start with an apology. We are a family owned and run business. We close for 2 weeks each year during the children's summer holidays and as such we need to run our stock levels right down, so I am sorry if we did not have everything on offer on the day of your visit.
