Milk and Honey Bake Shop Offers a Bit More

Milk and Honey Bake Shop became more vegan friendly after a nice email exchange with the owner in October. While their food menu is limited compared to their main Division Street location, the bake shop started offering their portobello sandwich without cheese.

Milk and Honey is located across from Half and Half's now closed location. 1543 N. Damen Avenue. El: Blue Line to Damen/Milwaukee. Bus: 50, 56, 72.
