I was traveling for business on the Ohio Turnpike and wasn't in the mood for another tollway meal, so I took a 5-minute detour to this Milan mainstay for breakfast.
Milan is the birthplace of Thomas Edison. It's a picturesque small town maybe a couple of miles south of the Ohio Turnpike on Route 250. It was an easy detour to make.
The restaurant itself sits on a corner on the public square. There is ample parking in back.
I think the restaurant actually closed sometime in the Spring of 2016 and only recently reopened under new management. While I was there a number of locals popped in to say how happy they were it was open again and to express their good wishes to the new owner.
The restaurant is pretty much a throwback to several decades ago. It was clean and bright, but nothing fancy. The menu is more or less what you'd expect from a small, local restaurant. I had a breakfast special, which was an astonishingly good deal and came with fried eggs, sausage, and pancakes. Again, nothing fancy, but the food was good and the experience was far better than fast food.
At present, they are only open for lunch and breakfast.
If you're feeling nostalgic, or just want some good plain food in a friendly setting, this is an excellent choice.
