Milk & Honey Cafe

I've been meaning to write about this place for a while, but I finally got motivated to fix some of my office mess, and before I could stuff the Milk & Honey menu into my teeming "chowhound" file, I figured I'd have to say something about it.

I got to imagine that Milk & Honey could meet some of the needs of the legion of Mimi-aholics out there, especially those who need their fix during normal business hours. Milk & Honey brings a fancy sandwich menu to the gang-strewn resturant row on Division St. In fact, Milk & Honey is nearly next to the schvitz, allowing an extremely healthful finish to a bit of purge.

I've attached a bit from Chicago Mag. on Milk & Honey. They note that they serve Red Hen breads. Of course this leads to fine product, bread being the key ingredient in a sandwich. Truth be told, however, I've only tried one thing, a grilled chicken, bacon and blue cheese combo on grilled ciabatta (sounds surprisingly like some poster's guilty pleasure). Who could resist something like that, but the choices were hard: herb-crusted roast beef with radish slaw, smoked trout with red onions, apples and romaine on pumpernickle, smoked turkey reuben. Mine was a very good choice, the flavors all worked in a brash (and guilty pleasure) kind of way, but I look forward to trying more. For Aaron and me, everything came with house-made chips and a pickle. Prices ranged from $6.25 to $7.25 for the sandwiches.

For those Atkins limited, Ms. VI really liked her squash soup and salad of the day. There are tons of interesting sounding baked goods and a weekend brunch that also sounded fun to eat..

The room was bright and polished in a way that showed some investment (both in money and decorator skill), but was not too much. It seems to make a fine addition to our scene.
