Everything on the menu is great. Eggs Benedict is the most popular brunch choice but my personal favourite is 'Morning glory' , delicious French toast with yoghurt and berries. The yoghurt tastes so much different instead of cream. The smoothies are wholesome and very tasty. It's very popular with foreigners/ tourists. But it shouldn't put you off. You will love... More

Went here for a late breakfast. Food was fantastic, service was great, atmosphere was lovely. A really chilled out cafe / lounge bar. Very comfortable seats, and the staff are chilled but attentive.

We came here around 9pm more than ready for some food after an evening of exploring. The place was very busy and we could tell why after eating. We ordered buffalo wings (so tasty!) and burgers. The food was so good and there was plenty. The atmosphere was great and the staff were very friendly and attentive. We will definitely... More

After a couple weeks of traveling, was starting to feel homesick. Came to Milk Bar & Bistro for some American brunch and it did not disappoint. Food was delicious. Vibe was very cool. Not at all touristy either. Thank you for a great experience -- and for offering ketchup when I didn't even ask for it :). Much love!

If you're an American in Europe and craving something more than a pastry and coffee for breakfast, this is the place for you. The food is fantastic and the staff is very friendly.

We went to eat brunch with high expectations and it did not disappoint us, on the contrary. We eat a burguer, the classic bennedits eggs and for dessert, american pancakes with mapple syrup. Everything so, so delicious. Everything a person neads on a sunday afternoon. Food of the gods. Do not even hesitate, go.
