So Milk & Honey is this cool, super hip and rustic joint that opened on Newkirk in Ditmas Park. (Great spot for meeting friends for a quick bite). To place your order you must walk up to the counter. The staff behind the counter are quite friendly and helpful in deciding what you might be in the mood of. They have some delicious fresh pastries on their shelves. I am not a fan of their coffee - I feel like it has this weird aftertaste. Definitely does not agree with me. Their dishes leaves a lot to be desired. Ive ordered the tacos, egg sandwich, and scrambled eggs. None of them left their mark. I also think that any restaurant that doesnt accept credit cards in the 21st century ought to lose a star just for that. It is such a bother to have to make sure to be carrying cash on me while going to cash only joints. Especially if I wasnt aware of it prior. - I avoid those places once I do know. It is a great spot to work quietly on laptops with multiple outlets to satisfy many.
absolutely loved this place. It reminded me of small cafe that i see around the city. This is a very coffee centric shop but they also serve some mean bites. I went there with a friend. He had been there and swore it would be great. And he didnt disappoint. the place is very chique for the neighborhood, i didnt expect that at all. everything is very cafe style with the seating and chairs. There are some nice wall art pieces that give the shop a very coffee centric feeling as i mentioned. We had their panini/sandwiches and absolutely loved them. The steak sandwich was my choice and it didnt disappoint. My friends go to is the Reuben and that looked delicious also. i regret not asking him to swap halves lol. I will definitely be going back and would recommend it. I didnt get a chance to have their coffee but from the looks of it, they knew what they were doing. They offered aeropress, chemex and regular machine coffee as well so they understand the coffee culture a bit.
A nice family friendly cafe that serves a decent hot food menu as well. Primarily known as a coffee and bakery as they serve a nice cup of coffee and have some great fresh made pastries. Danishes and croissants are the items to get. They also make a nice watermelon mint juice. Very cold and refreshing. Its a great spot for a weekend brunch. Tables and service are self serve though. Make sure to take a open table before ordering as the tables go fast. Then order at the counter and the food is brought to you. Service was a bit slow as our entrees were brought out pretty late. Their poached eggs are cooked up nicely. I had the field mushrooms with poached eggs over salad with country bread and it tasted great. Family friendly as they have ample space for high chairs that they provide for the lil one to sit with you. Its a nice neighborhood spot to relax and have brunch.
Great food, great service great ownership! Pros: - Delicious freshly (in-house) baked pastries. - Nice atmosphere with a good buzz and vibrence. - Nice decor - Very nice, clean, large bathroom. - Surprisingly excellent food for this kind of establishment. Cons: - Hipster workers are not always very customer friendly and some have attitude - No heavy cream available for those who prefer it. - They are cash only which is odd and upsetting for a hip coffee shop - onsite atm fee is higher than others in the area. - No clear work/order flow so youre not quite sure where to stand to order and what to do with your plates. - Not enough garbage cans, there is only one at the entrance so if youre at the back tables you need to walk across the dining room with your waste.
Great little cafe! The menu seems to have a mixture of Turkish or Moroccan influence and the coffee is AMAZING! I ordered a Latte and was not disappointed. The espresso they use has a robust quality that I honestly havent had elsewhere. As for the layout, this is a seat-yourself establishment. You place an order at the counter, you receive a number and a staff member will bring your food to your table once its ready. This is a great place for a low-key brunch meetup. I wouldnt recommend this establishment for a large group, but certainly come in groups of four or less!!
Gets busy in waves. Good place to read /work despite that. Laptop and tablet free on weekends. A little pricey but the food and coffee are excellent. Ran by the guy who runs Qathra on cortelyou so it has a middle eastern flair and he runs a tight ship. The care and joy he takes in his work shows in everything. I give it a 4 just because Qathra still edges it out as a coffee shop. But it really should be a four and a half and rising. Really love this place and its a hike from where I live.
Local places are my fav. And it cant get more local than Milk and Honey cafe. Hidden on a side street, just behind the school, a beautiful, good atmosphere and fairly priced coffee place. I liked the diversity of people here (good places attract different people). The prices are fair, and the tastes are good. I cant say that the cakes were amazing, but they were better than a OK. Bathroom: clean, smell good, and big. Local? You should try it.
The mocha was sooo sweet. They didnt have free milk around on the counter so I asked for some milk to add in it. Instead of providing, he asked for $2 charge. The service wasnt the best and they didnt have the air-conditioning system on. The atmosphere wasnt bad but the background music was annoying. The best part was probably their toilet because its clean and big. There are a lot more other nice coffee shop in Brooklyn. Wont recommend here.
Unfriendliest cafe owner I have ever met. After I had already ordered he asked me to leave the cafe because I had used a laptop on a day that he had designated as laptop free. There are no signs informing customers about this policy but he told me I should have informed myself about their policies on Facebook before coming. He handed me a disposable cup and kicked me out. You better do you homework before visiting Milk and Honey.
Ever since Max (the owner) opened this second location (sister to Qathra a few blocks away on Cortelyou Rd), Ive been coming here almost exclusively. The coffee is exceptional, the menu is divinely-inspired and offers recognizable American dishes as well as some more exotic Middle Eastern flares. The staff and baristas are also amazing and friendly! Love coming here! Also, very kid friendly (high-chairs and booster seats).
If you want to eat here, be prepared to encounter customers who are as rude as fart. Due to the establishments free seating policy, I had the worst experience. My friends and I were kindly waiting for two patrons to get up from a table when a man just rudely took the seats we were waiting for. Instead of causing a commotion we just left. It was an unfortunate waste of time even going there.
Good option in the neighborhood that doesnt have many options but... come prepared, this is CASH only established and if you got no cash they will politely ask you to use their ATM which carries fees. The food and the place itself is okay. Nevertheless, I will not give this restaurant anything above 2 stars until they will make it convenient to customers and start accepting credit cards.
