My wife and I used to go here very often and then stopped then visited again recently. The atmosphere,food , desserts are still great. In winter it is beautiful when they light the fireplace. It is cozy, warm and staff is friendly. Food is very good, the Avocado Wrap is delicious and I am nt a big avocado eater!

This is one of my favorite places. The food is awesome and the service is outstanding. It is unique in its decor and just a delightful place for ladies who lunch or couples who want to share a romantic evening out. Very accommodating staff. Don't miss!!!

Stopped in for lunch before a business meeting in Bayshore. Chicken salad sandwich was excellent and quite a lot of it. Plenty leftover for dinner. Ice tea was one of the best iced teas I've ever had.

This place is not your average cafe. They have couches, Queen Ann chairs, and coffee tables. It's cool. The food is good too.

Went in there for coffee. Even though that was all we were having, we were not hurried or pressured in any way. Another review here uses the words "quaint place" and that pretty much sums it up. We will be back. The dessert menu looked scrumptious

We've visited this quaint restaurant on several occasions, mostly for brunch. We love sitting in the couch/coffee table areas. The last time we came, I brought my 9 year old daughter and 4 year old niece and it was like our very own grown up tea party. The food is very good and I also recommend it for a girls... More

I had been to Milk & Sugar Cafe a few years ago to celebrate a friends birthday and had a wonderful experience. However 2016 proved to be very different. Last nights experience was extremely disappointing and embarrassing as a host of a double birthday dinner. I booked a reservation 1 month prior for a group of 8 celebrating the birthdays... More

Excellent fresh food. I was happy to find vegetarian selections. A little pricey and the portions aren't huge butt the quality of food is excellent. Willing to make changes in menu items to accommodate my food allergies. The atmosphere was warm and comfy and the staff very attentive. Very nice visit. Highly recommend

This a spot that actually defies normal description. It's Victorian in some ways and rustic in others. The food is quite tasty with lovely desserts. It was my Mom's and HER closest friend's favorite place. Service is acceptable; never found it more than that. The ONLY downside, IMHO, is that the tables are much too close together. As a result...
