We saw the queue and considered going elsewhere; but so glad we waited. After ten minutes we squeezed on our table (it's quite cramped so be prepared for sharing space/conversation). Great selection on the brunch menu and service isn't too slow despite the crowds. Beautiful presentation and really tasty dishes; we were both delighted with our choices - especially the... More

We had breakfast here, and found the portions to be very generous and the food to be tasty. The atmosphere is pleasant, with a mix of tourists and locals. Our waitress spoke good English, and had a sheet with dietary considerations on it for each menu item.

Found this cool little eatery while waiting to check in our hotel. It's very shabby chic boho and plays great music. . We sat at the bar for a drink and decided to return for a meal during our visit. We got there ,on our second visit, toward the end of their famous recovery brunch. I had the Nurse Jackie... More

Everything on the menu is great. Eggs Benedict is the most popular brunch choice but my personal favourite is 'Morning glory' , delicious French toast with yoghurt and berries. The yoghurt tastes so much different instead of cream. The smoothies are wholesome and very tasty. It's very popular with foreigners/ tourists. But it shouldn't put you off. You will love... More

Went here for a late breakfast. Food was fantastic, service was great, atmosphere was lovely. A really chilled out cafe / lounge bar. Very comfortable seats, and the staff are chilled but attentive.

We came here around 9pm more than ready for some food after an evening of exploring. The place was very busy and we could tell why after eating. We ordered buffalo wings (so tasty!) and burgers. The food was so good and there was plenty. The atmosphere was great and the staff were very friendly and attentive. We will definitely... More

After a couple weeks of traveling, was starting to feel homesick. Came to Milk Bar & Bistro for some American brunch and it did not disappoint. Food was delicious. Vibe was very cool. Not at all touristy either. Thank you for a great experience -- and for offering ketchup when I didn't even ask for it :). Much love!

Portions are large to say the least but filled with flavour. A must for anyone who enjoys brunch. Location is beautiful and staff are friendly and polite. Highly recommend
