This resturant is a favourite stop each summer. They have several areas to eat. Front patio, inside and back terrace by the dam. The day we were there a pair of swans kept us entertained. They make a very good spicy Caesar drink and have a very good selection of wines, both white and red. The menu has a very... More

Great meal, two nights this week, great mussels, salads, bouillabaisse and salmon, wonderful service from Sawyer. We sat on both terraces and loved it. We ate at several other restaurants, this was our favourite.

It's summer, so enjoying scenic field trips and meeting out-of-town friends for lunch when ever I can is on my agenda. The Mill Cafe deserves a do-over because the riverside setting in quaint Thornbury and delicious food are well worth the drive from nearby Collingwood and from Toronto. Inside the cozy tin-hammer panelled room with big beam wood and stone... More

We have been before, and will be back again soon. Mill side patio is wonderful! Food as always was delish. Breaded shrimp and Caesar salad to start followed by chicken schnitzel and chicken basil pasta. Everything was amazing as always, and our server Ali was great. Wednesday night is $1 corkage night which is great as well!

This used to be our go-to place in Thornbury for the balcony seating. Still popular and has a good view.

Lovely lunch out on the patio. Everyone loved their meals. And there is a good selection of draught beers.

Go to The Mill often and never get tired of it. Have recommended it to family and friends who then email me to thank me for the recommendation. Excellent food and very friendly and efficient service.

Wonderful quick stop for apps and wine with family. The mussels were amazing and the Char special was so delicious. Briana, our server, was so nice and delightful!

We stopped at The Mill Café on a bike ride form Collingwood. We sat outside by the damn and it was very pleasant and busy which is always a good sign for me. I had the Tequila Lima Tacos which were very tasty but quite a small portion for $14.00. All in all the food was tasty, the server friendly... More

We stopped by this lovely little place on a drive through town. Hot day called for sangria on the back patio which included a pretty view. Staff were extremely friendly. Kitchen is open concept and they grow a lot of their own herbs, using fresh local fare. Great little place!
