Milk & Honey Cafe
Our philosophy is simple: to provide great food, exceptional value, and friendly service to each and every customer we serve. No matter where you call home, you can expect the same family-friendly restaurant atmosphere, great service and value, and delicious food you look forward to any day of the week. Although the menu was designed by Celebrity Chef Sammy Davis, the food is the real star. Milk & Honey's focus is on our food. We take pride in the quality of our food and friendly service. Your first visit you may experience a wait time and line before being seated. Keep in mind there is a reason there is a wait. We ask that our customers come with two attributes...patience and a healthy appetite. Enjoy. "The Best Brunch In Town!"
good food, small space, long wait
finally tried milk & honey's brunch, after hearing so many good things about it. the rumored long-waits are absolutely true...and so are the all the praises. the meal was worth the wait. quick pros/cons below. more specific(s)/review of visit at the bottom.
-good staff (friendly, communicative, prompt)
-food came out quickly, hot, and again, it was delicious
-long wait & no wait area inside
-very limited parking
-no substitutions/alterations allowed
-no separate/split checks allowed*
COULD GO EITHER WAY:
(depending on what you do or don't like)
-no parties larger than 8 people allowed
*the menu says you cannot split the check but that they'll allow up to 3 forms of payment for one bill.
he got the fish & grits; i got the vanilla cognac french toast. we both got sides of turkey sausage. everything was very good. the fish (whiting) was perfectly fried, golden, just-right crispy outside & tender inside, and well-seasoned. the grits were cheesy, creamy, savory deliciousness. there were 3 huge pieces of fish and a medium-sized serving of grits. definitely could've had less fish and more grits for a better balance. the french toast was 2 giant pieces topped with strawberries, blueberries, and the caramel-like vanilla cognac sauce. i asked for syrup on the side but didn't need a drop of it. the sauce was just sweet enough, but too much. we were both satisfied & full, and only able to finish about 1/2 of our meals.
the wait & location-
(note: if you leave your # when you leave your name on the list, they'll call/text you when your table is ready.) when we arrived we were told 90 minutes. when we were leaving, the wait was up to 2 hours. again, people were willing to wait, so that tells you something. but i'm sure the small space, limited parking, and lack of indoor wait area (it was snowing the day we went), contribute to some people saying nevermind. there's a deck out front that is probably nice to wait and or dine on when the weather's nice. they have no sign on the building (what kind of business 101 fail is that?). literally nothing until you walk right up on the building and then there are basically standard 8 1/2 x 11 paper sized flyers in each window that say milk & honey. that is not visible from anywhere but standing right in front of it. they need to do better on that. if you're trying to find it, you should also know that the door is not street-facing. it's on the side of the building, looking into the side parking lot.
