Great ice cream sandwiches. The perfect thing to bring along to dinner parties if you're in charge of dessert. I've had a decent Cubano sandwich here, too, but it's really all about the ice cream treats.

There’s probably around 42 sweet reasons to visit Milk on a daily basis. The three that stand out most in my mind are: (1) Baby Caramel Apples, (2) $.50 Bon Bons and (3) the “Warm Ooey Gooey Chocolate Sundae”. Here’s why: (1) Baby Apples make just about anything cuter, (2) I challenge you to find anything more delish for 50-cents within 10 square miles, (3) They use coconut ice cream for a genius twist on the classic sundae. Some things to note: I once had an entire cookies and cream malt that took me a full two days to recover from. Don’t get me wrong, it was an amazing tastebud experience, but the amount of creamy calories packed into that glass could fuel pack mule team for a month. My advice is to split your shake with a friend the first time around and then slowly work up to the full glass over the course of a couple visits. I plan to actually go back soon for something that doesn’t require an insulin chaser and my eye is currently on the Prosciutto & Provolone with arugula, potato slices and pickled onions. Will report back here after my savory nosh.

The decor is cute and different (a real thematic 50s vibe throughout), and the big sundaes look absolutely amazing...but this place is not a very pop-in friendly place. One, the parking is insane. I circled for about 30 minutes and still didn't find parking at 9PM. I resorted to parking on a red zone and ordering two ice creams to go. Two, I ordered just regular scoops of ice creams because their more elaborate ice creams are quite expensive! $6 dollars or something? Why?! Well, I guess it's acceptable to split one with a date, but if it's just a simple crave for ice cream...look for a no frills place! This place is more of an experience, if you like that kind of thing. Now I know that you have to actually prepare ahead of time for an ""ice cream night"" to really enjoy Milk. And go with the idea that it's not Baskin Robbins.

I went into Milk to buy a gift card for my roommate, and I ended up having a great experience! I guess they just started issuing gift cards, so they were having a bit of trouble. They kept apologizing for taking so long, but I was keeping myself busy looknig at the cases of ice cream and cookies. Then, they gave me a free cookie! And then they gave me free ice cream! I wasn't really in the mood for sweets, but they were both delicious! The double chocolate cookie was amazing and tasted like pure chocolate, not like any of that waxy gross stuff I'm used to. The ice cream, however, was the true star of the night. The cashier told me that the hazlenut was good, but it wasn't good. It was GREAT! It was incredibly smooth and creamy, and I think it had huge toffee chunks in it, which I normally don't even like. Perfect! The friendly service alone will bring me back to Milk, even if I can't find a place to park within a mile. I think it'd be a great place to go for lunch or an afternoon sweet fix.

I was driving home down Beverly Blvd. one day when the sign MILK caught my eye. I knew I had to, I mean absolutely had to come back and check it out. After doing some research online I found out that it was an ice cream parlor-esque establishment that was especially known for its desserts and ice cream sandwiches. Upon arriving I couldn?t help but notice the art deco building which was modernized in a subtle and tasteful manner. Inside the decor was very simple and sterile with stainless steel finishings meets 50?s diner with the tunes of jimmi hendrix, john lennon and tom petty and the heart breakers playing in the background. I couldn?t help but tap my foot and hum along with my favorite songs while waiting for my food. It wasn?t too loud unlike other establishments I?ve been to who seem to think that blasting music into it?s customers skulls gives the place more character and makes it fun. The place itself caters to a variety of customers running from hipsters who have come to see and be seen, to locals who are enjoying a blended mocha with their newspaper. The staff was especially helpful and friendly. They even offered to save my table and watch my things as I moved my car to their private parking lot. I ended up getting the Media Noche sandwich and was pleasantly surprised. The sandwich itself had an interesting combination of ingredients like roasted pulled pork and ham with manchego cheese, pickles, and roasted garlic mayo that complemented each other perfectly! It?s definitely something I?m going to be coming back for again.
