The other day just before sunset I found myself walking into a quaint, cozy coffee shop called Milk Bar, which is located just on the doorstep of Amatuli Artefacts and just below Katy’s Palace Bar in Kramerville, Johannesburg. Whilst there I had a really nice hot chocolate that came with a soft centred chocolate that you drop into the milk, it was so nice I had to stop myself from eating the whole thing in one go. I then grabbed a takeaway Flat White (they use Bean There beans), which was also really good.
What’s cool about this spot is that it opens at 6:30am during the week and then after hours it turns into a bar till 20:00pm. As the sun started going down they lit candles which really made the place look warm and festive. Food wise they serve cakes, flat breads, pastries, sandwiches, pot pies and more. I didn’t get to eat because I was just passing through, but I’m definitely going back. I took a little sneak peak at their cakes and I liked what I saw. Here’s another cool thing about it, if you’re in a hurry and just driving by you can grab a coffee from their takeaway window, which opens at 6.30am. I’ve always loved that idea, like a little hole in the wall.
