Adeney Milk Bar
Adeney Milk Bar recently celebrated their second birthday and is a great local hangout to sip a coffee and read the papers on the weekend. An old milk bar that has been converted to a café, Adeney Milk Bar is located opposite a sports oval down a side street in Kew. The café weaves its way around some white rooms where a bottle of foliage can be found on each table. The menu is simple with a focus on sandwich and breakfast items. As well as some homemade cakes, they now stock Doughboys Doughnuts!
WHAT’S ON THE MENU?
· Autumn Smash – avocado, chilli, coriander and fresh lime on toasted sourdough ($14.00)
· Salmon Bagel – salmon, cream cheese, parsley, cucumber and rocket on a toasted bagel ($10.00)
· Thai Chicken Salad – rocket, avocado, chicken, carrot, tomato, corn, coriander, mint and lime mixed with sweet chilli sauce ($15.00)
· Vic Park Toastie – Ham, cheese, tomato, avocado ($10.00)
WHAT WE ATE...
I decided to have the ‘Mexican Honeymoon Wrap – sweet chilli chicken, corn, tomato, avocado, cheese and coriander rolled up in a toasted tortilla ($13.00)’. I found the meal to be adequate but nothing very exciting. It was rather wet and I had a pool of liquids residing on my plate by the time I had finished.

My dining companion chose ‘The Argyle Burger – house made beef patty, cheese, tomato, avocado, relish and lettuce on a brioche bun ($15.00)’. The burger was tasty but nothing special. The avocado was a bit scarce but the patty itself was nicely cooked.
WHAT WE DRANK...
How about an Affogato? Vanilla ice-cream and honeycomb topped with honey and a double shot of coffee ($6.00)... Perhaps, a ‘Doctor Greenthumb juice - kale, apple, celery, mint ($8.00)’ is more your thing... My Latte ($3.80) was made with the Fitzroy Street blend of coffee by Industry Beans. The latte was delightfully dark and fruity with a hint of chocolate.
The service was a bit hit and miss. It took a long time for our orders to be taken and our meals to arrive despite the café being fairly quiet. Cutlery was also not provided thus we needed to request our silverware...
