Doran visited Milly's Chowder House while writing his book, Secrets of Deltora. The House sold chowder and bread, and was decorated with fish oil lanterns. Doran had a bowl of chowder, which he claimed was the best thing he ever tasted and enjoyed Milly's fresh-baked bread. Sailors and passengers who came ashore often enjoyed sampling Milly's chowder and her company. Milly's Chowder House had stables and sold Gripper Salve for a good price.
