Surly 80s waitresses at Canter's and Du-Par's? Sounds fun.  

Milt's Coffee Shop in Enchanting Bakersfield

#1DinerWife and I were taken over by wanderlust not too long ago and found ourselves in enchanting Bakersfield. For lunch one day we went to Milt's Coffeeshop.  

I love this megalithic sign.

Inside is decorated with murals depicting the area through different decades.

The service was not great. They were busy, yes, but our waiter seemed to be a social floater. He'd stop and chit chat with other tables while we waited around for him.

Biscuits and Gravy

Chicken and Waffles

Pumpkin Pancakes

Food: Decent, but not anything special.
Service: For us, lacking.
Price: Decently price for the quality. $7 to $10.
Pie: Assorted.
