Pence’s visit to one of Richmond's favorite eateries was a surprise even to Millie's owner. Many diners thought the motorcade and secret service meant a visit by another vice presidential nominee.
“We thought it was going to be Tim Kaine because we’re in Richmond and we figured Tim Kaine is going to come to a small local spot that everybody knows, but then it was Mike Pence. I didn't know he would come to such a small local little haunt,” said patron Elisabeth Savvides.
Pence did not take questions from the media, but did spend about 20 minutes taking selfies, snapping photos, and chatting with diners, like Darrah Murray and her niece and nephew.
“He just asked us how we were, and did we enjoy coming here often,” said Murray. “I told him ‘yes it was a really nice place,’ and if he had time he should try something.”
