2012 is the year of the kosher cafe.I have said in a previous blog posting that we have had several new kosher cafes open in Melbourne. Glenhuntley Road has now three kosher cafes within two blocks of each other. Savion up near Orrong Road and Glenhuntly Junction and the much loved Amalya's cafe near the Kooyong and Glenhuntly Junction and now Milk N Honey which is the latest on the Melbourne Jewish Cafe sene to open its doors.
Each of these places is different and caters to a general public with varied tastes and hasa unique ambiance. Milk N Honey has a warm inviting atmosphere with wooden seats and outside seating for those who like to sit outside in the open air to observe the passersby and just smooze.
I went there today and it is crowded with a wide variety of people. The coffee is good. That is a plus. If you are a cafe, no matter how good your food is, you need to know how to make a good cup of coffee. The staff are friendly although run off their feet. When I entered today, every seat was taken and I hope that continues.
They have an innovative and interesting menu and people seemed to be enjoying what they were eating. All the food has healthy and fresh combinations with a lot of fish and salads. The desserts looked scrumptious. My waistline needs tucking in so I could not order or tuck in. Here is there website with the menu. I am looking forward to going there after I have gotten myself a job and celebrating. So nice to have a choice of places to eat out and socialise with friends.
The prices are very reasonable and they also cater for functions. Have a look on the website and check out the menu and pop on down but at the moment you may have to book or try for in between times to get a seat. This place is hot to trot in the town.
