It’s not every day you see a pop-up breakfast taco and coffee shop, let alone one that takes over a bar.
A few months ago a new watering hole called Park View Patio opened in its eponymous neighborhood, a few blocks south of the Georgia Ave-Petworth Metro. Being a new bar still working to build a clientele, they’re only open Thursday to Sunday nights. So what to do the rest of the time?
Enter the guys from Milk Cult, who are best known for selling gourmet ice cream sandwiches out of a motorcycle with a freezer in the sidecar. They established the Milk Cult Sanctuary, a pop-up in Park View Patio when it’s not open, serving up breakfast tacos, locally roasted Vigilante Coffee, and pastries. And it’s fantastic.
The last time I stopped in, they had three kinds of tacos: corned beef hash, bacon and egg, and fried green tomatillo. The corned beef hash, with delicious, big chunks of beef, potatoes and tater tots, was fantastic, and the bacon and egg (also with tots) was also quite good. My buddy’s veggie tomatillo one was spot-on as well, and the coffee continued the delicious theme.
They plan to keep their pop-up open indefinitely, which is great news. It’s quick and delicious, good for a bite or to spend some time.
