Neighborhood Ice Cream Parlour, cafe, and bakery

Milk is a casual yet good for people watching neighborhood hangout. When you step in, it feels somewhat sterile because of all the white paint and stainless steel. The high ceiling makes it feel less cosy but gives a very cool feeling in hot summer. It has a real dairy/ice cream parlor vibe.

They have many things but do most of it really well. It has good ice cream, ice cream treats, sorbet, and great cookies, cakes, and puddings. They also have good coffe and cuban sandwiches.

I love their butterscotch pudding, chocolate chip cookies, and chocolate fudge cookies. Their tres leches cake isn’t too wet but very moist and rich and delicious. However, the blue velvet cake feels like it was dunked in moisture and was too mushy for me.

Their fudge sundae is a good bargain. I refuse to go to Mashti Malone’s because their portions are way too tiny for the price. They put little scoops of ice cream with fudge in a small container that sits comfortably in your hand and calls it a sundae and charges around $7.

At Milk, a large cold glass container is filled with 2 generous scoops of their ice cream with hot fudge, butterscotch, whipped cream, nuts, and a cherry top it off for less than $6. Their coffee ice cream is so yummy and strong that it can keep you up at night. They aslo have little good chocolate covered ice cream treats for .50.

I would have given it 5 stars if the seating was more comfortable with more indoor seating. Staff are usually friendly and helpful but it can get really crowded with staff getting confused and flustered. Parking is terrible in this area in the evening but before 6p there’s parking in the side alley of El Cayote parking. After 6, you are on your own and being speed racer to get to a parking space.

 

Posto Fantastico!

Questo posto è veramente fantastico! Si trova anche vicino ad un negozio di orologi da uomo e quindi è veramente il top! Non troverete di meglio in giro! Vi consiglio di mangiare un buon pasto in questo ristorante e non rimarrete di certo delusi!

When I went to Milk, I got to sample several of...

When I went to Milk, I got to sample several of their famous ice creams, and found them sort of hit and miss. For starters, the coffee toffee crunch ice cream just wasn’t as great as their reviews. Surprisingly, the quince sorbet was excellent though – light, sweet yet not cloyingly so. Blood orange sorbet is good too, a very mellow orange flavor, not intense as I would have expected.

I also tried three different milkies (little ice cream chocolate covered bonbons) – mint chocolate, strawberries & cream, and coffee toffee crunch. These hit the spot when you want just a little bit of ice cream and chocolate but not a full order. I actually preferred eating their ice cream this way versus just a regular scoop – perhaps being covered in chocolate helped!

I’ve also tried Milk’s peanut butter cookies which are quite tasty, with peanut butter chips and actual peanuts mixed in; they’re about 1/4" thick, more of a soft yet sturdily “crumby” texture (the way that many chocolate chip cookies are) versus the typical crispy or chewy.

I’ve had also had the Ooey Gooey Chocolate Cookie, a smaller but thick chocolate cookie with chocolate chips. These are sumptuous for a chocolate fix – soft, chewy and the chocolate chips are big!

Blondies are pretty good, but not the best; soft, slightly buttery texture; use tiny milk chocolate chips, chopped walnuts, and butterscotch chips. Fortunately, the butterscotch (or are they white chocolate?) chips weren’t overly sweet, but I would have rather that they use all chocolate chips instead of half b-scotch and half chocolate chips.

I don't get the love of this place. Yes it has good cookies, but so do a lot of places around that don't have a 30 minute wait to get them. I'm lactose intolerant so maybe the ice cream and shakes are what get people excited?

Nothing to Rave about

I was really surprised how people were talking about this place and lining up for it. I did it and found out there is nothing special about it. I guess people think because its overpriced ice cream it has to be good. Its not!

ice cream sampler

Loved the place there was some many good icecreams to pick from I added for a sample plater and he whipped one up for me. We were able to taste some of the great flavors of icecream. I was great.

Tips
  • Try the Milkie Way malt, made with the shop's signature homemade vanilla ice cream, malted milk, chocolate chips and a caramel-chocolate swirl.
  • After filling up on breakfast, or lunch, walk off those calories over at the Grove outdoor mall, and do some light shopping or people-watching.
  • On the second Saturday of every month, take the kids for cooking classes where there will be recipes to taste and try. Call for details on pricing.
