New Anguilla Card Partner: The Mill House Café

Anguilla's West End is known for its beautiful beaches, high end resorts and special vantage points with breathtaking vistas. Right in the middle of the action is the buzz-worthy brunch hot spot, The Mill House Café...

Fun, pretty and bursting with personality, this lovely addition to the excellent restaurants in West End is one of our top spots for a lively brunch!

When you first arrive, the Mill House's charming building invites you in with its teal hues.

The deck is breezy, chic and comfortably sits about 30 people. Word of Warning: On weekends, this dining room will be packed. Come early to get a seat!

To start, we had a cold, caramel frappuccino topped with sweet, milky whipped cream.

Recommended by Mill House's gracious barista, this is a cool treat on a warm Anguilla day.

One of our favorites on the menu, the DBC...

"What is DBC?" I asked our host. "Death. By. Chocolate," she replied with a wide, menacing smile.

She was not kidding. These waffles are decadent, coated in chocolate Nutella, chocolate syrup and chocolate chips. Topped even further with whipped cream and powdered sugar, it is definitely the sweetest item on the menu.

In addition to their breakfast items, The Mill House Café serves up a whole variety of lunch eats. Burgers, pizzas and a number of sandwiches grace the menu.

What fun it was! Hip, delicious and with the warmest of service, dining at the Mill House is an experience.

Their food will wow your tastebuds and their fun-loving team of staff will have you coming back time and time and time again.
