Tucked away in the tiny streets of the Gothic Quarter, this cafe-cum-cocktail bar makes up for in character what it lacks in size.
Tucked away in the tiny streets of the Gothic Quarter, this cafe-cum-cocktail bar makes up for in character what it lacks in size. With only a few tables, you can expect to wait for up to half an hour if you haven’t booked a table. It’s worth it but make sure to keep an eye out for cars trying to squeeze down the narrow street outside because the road definitely isn’t wide enough for the both of you.
The atmosphere inside just oozes lazy Sunday morning, with cosy booth seats and cheerily quirky decoration so sit down and leave yourself plenty of time to peruse the menu.
The smoothies are good but know what you’re letting yourself in for. It’s easy to fill up on their fruity-oat concoctions only to be presented with an enormous plate of food. Whilst there are a few traditional options on the menu (chorizo hash being a good place to start), Milk is the perfect place to go if you’re craving comfort food. Dishes such as Eggs Benedict, American Pancakes and Full English Breakfast are served in hearty portions to ease you into the day. Sometimes you just can’t beat a classic and at Milk your expectations of what you know so well will not be disappointed. For those with a sweet tooth, try the French Toast, served with a dollop of greek yoghurt and fruit compote - sounds healthy, I can assure you it’s not.
Top tip: If you fancy the menu but not the wait, head over to Marmalade or Firebug. Started by the same couple after Milk was such a success, they each have a slightly different atmosphere with the same great food.
