    If you're Mexican, don't get the huevos rancheros. Your momma probably makes them better. Get the lemonade tho!

    No frills breakfast and lunch cafe. Think breakfast panini, lox bagel, huevos rancheros. Nice outdoor seating when the weather cooperates. Good coffee and tea options as well.

    For those willing to indulge, try their orange brioche French toast or huevos rancheros. At Milk & Honey, you don’t need to wait until the weekends to enjoy brunch, which is also served Monday-Friday. Read more

    Don't agree with the comments about bad service, but 0/2 on food - huevos rancheros were cold, blt was generic (certainly not thick-cut) and assembled poorly.

    Milk & Honey pickles its own sweet spears that are served alongside their sandwiches, but they're happy to throw in a couple of extras, and if you're hankering for a dozen, they're 25 cents each.

    The Bloody Mary at Milk and Honey is pretty generic apart from the topings. it comes with a cherry tomato, cheddar cube and an insanely good pickle (that only comes with the drink)
