I always passed by MILK on Beverly Blvd., and I always though it was some kind of milk store. Could it be? The main headquarters of all of milk? Maybe it was a retired bottling company for milk bottles, like in the olden days. Whatever it was, or is, I wanted to go inside.
From the looks of the inside, it just looks like a regular shop — Ice cream on one side and baked goods on the other. They serve sandwiches, salads, soups, and other entrees, but most people come for the good stuff, the sweets.
I came here for the blue velvet cake. Everyone knows red velvet cake, its in all the cakes. Red velvet cakes, cupcakes, pancakes — everything. But the people at MILK made a twist on that and made it blue. The taste was really good, and I liked the texture a lot. A bit dense, and not too sweet. I liked that it didn’t crumble at all. All in all, it was a good cook. Kind of a thin slice for 5 dollars, but it was cool to try the blue velvet. Not to mention that all of their treats are a bit on the pricey side.
I had a chance to have a sample of the coffee toffee ice cream. It wasn’t as good as I though, but it did have the coffee flavor that I liked. I do prefer gelato over ice cream. Their other cookies and treats are good as well. This place is definitely a sweet treat kind of place. Some honorable mentions are their bread pudding and their chocolate chip cookies.
I imagine going here, having a plate of cookies, a nice slice of cake, and a big cup of milk. That would be wonderful. This place would be a good place to have dessert after a meal, possibly Pink’s or El Coyote nearby. Have yourself some cookies and ice cream, or a nice slice of cake. Maybe both? Either way, dessert is definitely served.
