I know you're asking what that is! If you are from Northern NJ you know! I had no idea you could get it out in CO. They cut it thick here and it is true name brand Taylor ham. Try a Taylor ham, egg and cheese on a hard roll if you are in the area. They offer it with... More

My husband and I stopped in to Mildred's on our way down from Pike's Peak. It was a few minutes to kitchen closing (not ice cream/shake closing, just the kitchen portion), but the 3 ladies behind the counter could not have been more welcoming - they were just as hospitable right before kitchen closing as any time of day. I... More

The epitome of family run business. Transplanted NJ to CO but none of the in your face associated with NJ. Homemade ice cream, friendly service, so much so that I am sending them my treasured bicentennial Virginia license plate to add to their collection of plates on the walls as it has no Virginia plate. Friendly family including a senior... More

We stopped at Mildred's because we were hungry. The bun on the 'Thanksgiving Sandwich' was so dry I could not eat it. I ate the inside of the sandwich only. My husband had a grilled cheese sandwich and his potato chips were stale. Neither the waitress nor man standing around ever asked us if we wanted a refill on our... More

This is a roadside, old fashioned diner, right at the base of Pike's Peak entrance. I have never been to Philadelphia, but Mildred makes the best Philly cheese steak sandwich I have ever had. It was positively delicious. All of the food we had was great and she has great ice cream flavors as well. It's perfect for lunch after... More

Cute old timey decorations, Resturant so clean that I would eat off the old license plates hanging around for decorations! Delicious food, great prices. Glad we stopped!

If it weren't for the Pike's Peak Cog Railway being sold out for that Sunday, we wouldn't have driven past Mildred's on our way to the Pike's Peak Highway. What a great break! Mildred's is a tiny spot in Cascade, CO. It's a true diner, right out of the 1950's or Happy Day's! It seats about 20 if you count... More

I ordered a grilled cheese and milkshake, both were amazing. I love the jukebox in the corner and the feel of the diner. Worth the stop!!!!

Owner very unfriendly,... More
