During my first visit, I couldn’t resist trying the Young Betty Poached Egg on Sourdough. I appreciated the combination of a rich and velvety Burnt Butter Hollandaise Sauce and a side of Seasonal Greens. Elevate this dish by adding Crispy Bacon or Smoked Salmon.

Eager to experience more of Milk Cafe’s offerings, I returned and ordered the Baked Eggs with Roasted Jersey Royals, fresh Asparagus, Feta, a drizzle of Tarragon Cream and a beautiful Black Garlic Purée. Every mouthful was a delight. It was served in a skillet atop a rustic wooden board.
