Milk Bar is a sweet (and occasionally savory) shop that’s been turning familiar treats upside down and on their heads, quietly shaking up the dessert scene since 2008. Bon Appetit magazine called us “one of the most exciting bakeries in the country.” But you can literally just call us Milk Bar. We’re not big on feeding the hype beast. But we’re super into feeding our flavorful treats to those who crave the unexpected.
Founded by James Beard award-winning pastry chef Christina Tosi, Milk Bar first opened its doors in NYC’s East Village, and soon developed a loyal fanbase. With lively storefronts in New York, Washington DC, Toronto, Las Vegas, Los Angeles and Boston, Milk Bar is known for inventing: the Compost Cookie®, layer cakes with unfrosted sides, Cereal Milk™ Soft Serve, Milk Bar Pie, the first flip phone and shoulder pads (Ok, technically those last two weren’t us). We believe in the transformative power of a really freakin’ good cookie or an outstanding piece of cake. We pull inspiration from simple ingredients, like the grocery store staples we grew up with. And we consider NO occasion at all, to be a perfectly valid occasion to celebrate yourself or someone else. We hope you’ll agree.read more
