This trendy place was set as a fancy one, so it keeps on existing. The concept of modern American food, in the good sense of it, was new for Kiev, and it became popular among those who can afford it. A US/Moscow chef from a famous chain, a Moscow barista and a pastry-chef made it bright and inviting. A tiffany colored terrace with a bench to observe the crowd while drinking your coffee, a take-away window for the desserts that can really blow your mind, new cocktails for each occasion, taking into account that every day IS an occasion – these are the features of Milk bar.
Besides the American food, they’ve added a homemade hummus, feta in herbs and honey and shepherd pie.
Among the desserts (there are so many and they always change), my number one is cranberry crumble, and nothing can beat it. Raf coffee with spices is great to have solo, although good company would be more than enough.
Fridays and Saturdays the place plays music for a playful mood, and Sundays a DJ accompanies the family brunch with weekend set.
