Open from 8am-8pm, Omega Restaurant is pushing through, and hopes to survive this tough time. Christina Escobar, who was taking orders earlier this morning, said that they’ve been monitoring the situation, and will decide in the coming days if Omega will be able to continue staying open, or if it makes more sense to close. She mentioned that many of their regulars are stopping in to pick up orders. Orders can be taken over the phone, or people can come to place them in person. Omega serves American diner food, and has been a Milpitas staple for several decades. The menu can be viewed on their website.

With a vision of empowering others to take charge of their health, RawASF is the perfect place to go for an immunity boost (something we could all use right now). “We received a 98 health score from Santa Clara County Health Department from our most recent inspection, and our team members are SafeServe certified,” said co-owner Catherine Trinh. “We are also taking extra precautions of team members washing heir hands frequently and we provide a natural homemade hand sanitizer in our store.” RawASF is a plant-based superfoods bar that serves smoothies, bowls, and unique options, like the Taro Avocado burger. People can order on the phone or online.

Please come to my cafe.” Along with to-go and delivery orders, Enriquez also offers catering, and is quick and dependable when it comes to filling large orders. Her sandwiches are considered by many to be the “best in Milpitas.” Check out Sea Link’s Facebook page here.

Here’s a list of restaurants who have decided to temporarily shut down during the shelter-in-place…

CLOSED

Casa Azteca

20 N. Abel St., Milpitas; 408-946-0466

Restaurant closed on 3/19, due to a low amount of takeout orders.

Mils Diner

The Mils Diner owner mentioned to The Beat that he decided to close the restaurant on Tuesday, ’til all is clear to open back up again. He said that the average of 5 orders a day he was getting for take-out was not worth keeping the business open. “The other day, I got 5 calls for food. And that’s it. It’s not worthwhile to stay open from morning to afternoon. And I can’t keep the food fresh for each day, if I don’t serve it,” said owner Louie Perivoliotis.

We will continue reaching out to business owners and encourage the community to support them as you’re able to. Let’s keep our local Milpitas businesses going strong! Please reach out and let us know if you’d like us to add any other restaurants to this list, or if you know of any that have closed.
