Take a trip back in time to old Tucson visiting Trail Dust Town. We had a combination of breakfast and lunch at Milie’s Pancake Haus. This pancake house with vintage decorations brings you back to yesteryear. It has a patio and on a pleasant day you can sit and view the sights of Trail Dust Town.

As with some theme restaurants it might be best to stick with the specialties. The Belgian pecan waffle was delightful. Crisp on the outside and well-cooked on the inside. Others in our group enjoyed the pancakes. For an extra amount you can request real maple syrup. No one in our group ordered the German Apple Pancake, but that may be something you can try for that old-world experience.
Those who ordered food other than breakfast food were not as pleased. Reports were that the schnitzel was bland, the grilled cheese sandwich was just OK. The loaded potato soup was a hit. One of the patrons in our group enjoyed the patty melt.
Trail Dust Town is a popular amusement park in Tucson. Millie’s is open during the day for breakfast, but the park livens up after 5:00 PM. This might be a place to bring the grandchildren to experience the old Southwest.
In addition to Millie’s Pancake Haus you will also find Pinnacle Peak, home of the Cowboy Steak.
Experience the wild west stunt show, or ride the train around the park. The park boasts a carousel and a Ferris wheel. You can pan for gold and try out the interactive shooting gallery. Check out the Museum of the Horse Soldier to view thousands of artifacts used by the United States horse soldiers.
