Milkboy Coffee: Best Main Line Coffee Shop/B.Y.O.B.
As one of the most happening coffee shops/B.Y.O.B.s on the Main Line (are there any others?), Milkboy Coffee is that rare â€œhipâ€ institution where even the squares can fit in. And believe me, I should know! Every night there is something going on at Milkboy and, more often than not, you will find yourself pleasantly entertained. From live bands and acoustic songwriters to poetry and open mic nights, Milkboy fills a void that’s been left on Lancaster Avenue since the departure of The Point in 2005. While you won’t see the likes of Jackson Browne, Bruce Springsteen and Warren Zevon, as you once did at The Point way back when, you may spot a few of their successors.Â (Reed Kendall’s Up the Chain, anyone?)
Open till 11 pm and later on weekends, whether you’re looking for a simple coffee and pastry fix, or more traditional B.Y.O. fare, Milkboy is the perfect place to unwind while in a young, vibrant atmosphere. Its modest nightly menu offers an eccentric sampling of munchie favorites, including quesadillas, mac & cheese, peanut butter & jelly, and classic grilled cheese, as well as full breakfast, lunch, soups, salads, snacks, desserts, and a variety of vegan options.Â MilkBoy also prepares its food using only organic, free-range, hormone-free products that are grown locally.
Located in a busy two block vicinity that includes Primavera Pizza Kitchen, Brownies 23 East, John Henry’s Pub, Bella Italia and Gilliane’s Tavern, Milkboy is the perfect place to either begin or end an evening. Â Just don’t tell them the square sent you!
